This summer, 20th Century Fox's Deadpool presentation at San Diego Comic Con was one of the most talked-about panels, as fans finally got to see the first trailer. As we get closer and closer to the February 12 release, star Ryan Reynolds announced in a new video, courtesy of Comic Book Resources, that he will be putting in an appearance at the Sao Paulo Comic Con, with the 20th Century Fox panel happening on Friday, December 4. It isn't known what 20th Century Fox plans on displaying at the panel, but it certainly may be a new trailer, especially considering what producer Simon Kinberg revealed earlier this month.
While he didn't give a specific date, Simon Kinberg confirmed that the new Deadpool trailer will be arriving in December, and since Ryan Reynolds has announced his presence at Sao Paulo Comic Con, it's certainly possible the trailer may debut here first, before arriving online. Simon Kinberg described the new footage as "pretty awesome," although he wouldn't give any details about what fans may see in the second trailer. 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 this new Deadpool video, as we wait for the new trailer to arrive next month.
