Bad Ass. Smart Ass. Great Ass. Wade Wilson shows his better side in a new international poster for Deadpool. Even with a mask on, Ryan Reynolds manages to pull a smug, coy face as he parades around in his little girly pink and black backpack, on his way to murder the bad guys. If you always wanted a better look at the Merc with a Mouth's fine assetts, here's your front row view.
Last week, Ryan Reynolds released a hilarious viral video announcing his appearance this week at the Sao Paulo Comic Con. The 20th Century Fox panel happens on Friday, December 4. It isn't known what 20th Century Fox plans to show fans, but it could be a new trailer. Producer Simon Kinberg revealed earlier in November that a new Deadpool trailer is arriving this month. The trailer may debut in Brazil first, before arriving online. Simon Kinberg described the new footage as "pretty awesome," although he wouldn't give any details about what we may see in terms of new footage. We also learned earlier this month that the first trailer for 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse will be attached to prints of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
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. The Deadpool supporting cast includes Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand or Olesia Shewchuk.
Tim Miller directs Deadpool from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. We reported last month that A-list directors James Cameron and David Fincher both had high praise for the script, putting in a good word for the project when it looked like it may not ever see the light of day. Star Ryan Reynolds is also producing alongside Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
Simon Kinberg also revealed last month that Deadpool is set within the X-Men movie universe. The producer explained that Deadpool will make references to the events portrayed in the previous X-Men movies, but it isn't clear what these references may be yet. Hopefully we'll get some of these references in the new trailer, but we'll have to wait and see. Until then, take a look at Mr. Wilson's backside. If you're into it. He's into it.
