While some fans are counting down the hours until they can see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, others are impatiently awaiting the new trailer for Deadpool. Today marks the fourth day of the 12 Days of Deadpool countdown, and we've already gotten a 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. Today we have another tasty treat from the fourth day of Deadpool, new photos from Empire Magazine which reveal the Merc's Christmas list. This list also teases that Deadpool will be featured on the cover of Empire's next print edition, so stay tuned for that.
Much like his "battle plan" yesterday, this list is full of random oddities, such as "2 silencers and 3 loudeners," along with a signed headshot of Andrew Ridgley (a.k.a. George Michael's less-famous partner from Wham!), Mario Batali's pancake spatula, a real stuffed unicorn and Betty White's phone number. He even takes a few shots at the X-Men franchise, asking for a lock of Beast's "beautiful blue hair" and a sewing kit, for his costume, NOT his mouth. This last joke is a reference to 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson had his mouth sewn shut at the end.
This 12 Days of Deadpool countdown leads 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. What do you think will be unveiled during tomorrow's edition of 12 Days of Deadpool? Chime in with your thoughts after taking a look at this new photo and the Merc's full Christmas list.
