Last week, we got a new Deadpool TV spot timed to the premiere of The Bachelor. It was geared more towards the romantic minded fan, and those looking for a compeling love story. Today, we get an updated version of that same sneak peek, only this time, it comes with the promise of a lot more round house kicks!
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.
Wade Wilson's girlfriend Vanessa Carlyle (Morena Baccarin) proves she's no simple damsel in distress in this latest TV spot. In fact, it looks like she'll have no problem holding her own against main bad guy Ajax if the Merc with the Mouth doesn't come through and save the day. We also get a look at Negasonic Teenage Warhead in her New Mutants uniform, and Colossus is also along for the ride.
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 is based on the Marvel comic book series created by Rob Liefeld.
Deadpool is slated for release on February 12, 2016, going up against Warner Bros.' How to Be Single and Paramount's Zoolander 2. Since neither of those films are expected to be R-rated like Deadpool, we'll have to wait and see if the rabid fan base for the Merc With the Mouth will come out in droves and overpower its competition. While we start the new countdown leading up to the February 12 release, take a look at these new photos below.
