It's the 5th day of The 12 Days of Deadpool! And it's also National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. So of course we get a poster that puts Wade Wilson in an Ugly Christmas Sweater. This latest gift arrives courtesy of Fandango. And it proudly announces that this is one Marvel superhero who sits in a class of his own. But to be honest, we've seen way uglier Christmas sweaters. Am I right?
The 4th day of Deadpool brought new photos from Empire Magazine which reveal the Merc's Christmas list and tease his big Empire Magazine cover. Before that, we also got a new theatrical style poster and viral video, naughty and nice Christmas photos with Ryan Reynolds, and a hand-drawn version of the Merc With the Mouth's battle plan! This 12 Days of Deadpool countdown is leading up to the release of the second Deadpool trailer, which airs during ESPN's NBA basketball games on Christmas Day.
Fans who are seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens in IMAX this weekend will be treated to a 27-second tease of Deadpool, before the full trailer arrives on Christmas Day. There will also be a red band trailer arriving at some point, but it hasn't been confirmed when this age-restricted footage will arrive. Ryan Reynolds stars as the Merc With the Mouth, with a supporting cast that includes Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Olesia Shewchuk, Style Dayne, Rachel Sheen and Dan Zachary.
Tim Miller makes his directorial debut with Deadpool, working from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool has already been confirmed as part of the X-Men movie universe, but we'll have to wait and see how if he will show up in future X-Men movies. Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016, going up against Warner Bros.' How to Be Single and another highly-anticipated sequel, Paramount's Zoolander 2.
