Fans are still talking about the red band trailer for Deadpool that debuted during 20th Century Fox's Hall H panel at Comic-Con nearly one month ago. Last week, it was confirmed that this age-restricted trailer will debut on Tuesday, August 4 on the TBS late-night talk show Conan, with the all-ages green band trailer debuting later this week. To get fans ready for the trailer's release, 20th Century Fox has put out a "trailer trailer," where Ryan Reynolds mocks 20th Century Fox by calling it, "the studio that inexplicably sewed his f---ing mouth shut the first time,' as the actor does his best trailer narrator impression.
Unfortunately, this teaser doesn't show off any of the actual footage, but it sets the comedic tone right off the bat, with Ryan Reynolds describing himself as a "five-time Academy Award viewer." It still isn't clear how Conan will get away with airing the red band Deadpool trailer, or if it will be the exact same footage that was shown at SDCC. Shortly after Comic-Con came and went, Ryan Reynolds revealed that the new trailer would debut in three weeks, and the actor was true to his word. It remains unclear whether or not the green band trailer will be attached to prints of 20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four when it hits theaters this weekend.
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. Tim Miller directs from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on the beloved comic book character created by Rob Liefeld
The supporting cast includes Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlyle, a.k.a. Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Ed Skrein as Ajax, T.J. Miller as Weasel and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. The popular X-Men character Colossus will be played by Andre Tricoteux, instead of Daniel Cudmore, who portrayed the character in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Ryan Reynolds has also expressed interest in reprising his Deadpool role in X-Force, which 20th Century Fox is currently developing.
