Conan is debuting the first trailer for 20th Century Fox's upcoming film Deadpool in all it's wicked, blood-drenched glory! Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero doesn't hold back, so Conan has changed the show's rating to TV-MA for the night to show this trailer on-air! You better scrub out your eyeballs and get ready for the Deadpool trailer to premiere on Conan tomorrow at 11pmET/8pmPT. It promises to be EPIC!
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
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. To get fans ready for the trailer's release, 20th Century Fox put out a "trailer for the trailer" this morning, which finds Ryan Reynolds mocking 20th Century Fox, saying, " from the studio that inexplicably sewed his f---ing mouth shut the first time.' The actor then does his best trailer narrator impression. We've included the teaser here for you in its entirety in case you missed it earlier.
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 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, but that's the word on the street. 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.
Are you looking forward to this red band trailer's debut tomorrow? Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016, going up against Warner Bros.' romantic comedy How to Be Single and the Paramount comedy sequel Zoolander 2. While we impatiently await this age-restricted footage, check out the brief preview below.
