Back on Monday, Ryan Reynolds kicked off the 12 Days of Deadpool campaign with a poster and a viral video from this highly-anticipated superhero adventure. This countdown will lead up to the premiere of the new trailer, airing Christmas Day on ESPN, during the network's NBA basketball coverage. Today, Ryan Reynolds took to his Twitter account to continue the 12 Days of Deadpool initiative, revealing the Merc With the Mouth's annual Christmas card.
In true Deadpool fashion, this holiday card breaks down Wade Wilson's year, as he makes fun of Dog the Bounty Hunter and Sean Penn, while admitting that he spent most of September watching Ryan Reynolds movies. The Merc With the Mouth also added that he had three special ops missions in Afghanistan this year, while breaking down his picks for favorite song of the year, favorite snack and favorite news, which involves the beloved TV series Gilmore Girls.
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 we don't know for sure yet if this will debut the same day, or after the all-ages green band trailer on December 25. The one thing we do know is that this will be a very Merry Christmas for any fan of this outspoken character.
Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
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. Take a look at this holiday card below, and check back tomorrow for the latest 12 Days of Deadpool entry.
