Yesterday, Ryan Reynolds kicked off his "12 Days of Deadpool" campaign with a new viral video and poster. This will all lead up to the new trailer coming Christmas Day for this highly-anticipated superhero adventure, ahead of its release on February 12. Each day, a different website will debut a new Deadpool treat, and today we have Christmas-themed photos from People Magazine. As you could tell in yesterday's video, The Merc With the Mouth definitely has the Christmas spirit, with the actor revealing his favorite part of the holiday season to People Magazine
"I'm just like everyone else at this time of year: I go to malls, find a crazy man screaming in a red costume, sit on his lap, and tell him to give me free stuff."
The photos feature Ryan Reynolds himself, out of his iconic costume, sitting on a cardboard cutout version of his beloved character. As expected, things start out nice, but eventually get rather naughty. For those who don't want to wait until Christmas Day for a new glimpse at Deadpool, fans who see the IMAX 3D version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend will get a special 27-second sneak peek.
There will also be a red band trailer that will presumably debut online. It's possible that the age-restricted video will debut sometime after the 12 Days of Deadpool campaign wraps up, but it may also come online the same night as the green band trailer on Christmas Day. What we do know is there are still 10 more days left that will surely be chocked full of Deadpool treats for fans of all (or most) ages.
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. Deadpool is in theaters in time for Valentine's Day this February. Take a look at your first gift. Sorry, we already went and opened it.
Ryan Reynolds' supporting cast 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 these new photos plus an animated gift showing Ryan Reynolds getting both naughty and nice with Deadpool. Stay tuned for tomorrow's Deadpool treat, which is coming from Deviant Art. Possibly some cool fan art given the Wade Wilson seal of approval?
