Deadpool is really getting into the spirit of Football, releasing it's second sports-themed TV spot. This latest one arrived on Saturday during the NFL Playoffs game between New England and Kansas City. It isn't much different from the previous 'Canadian Rules' TV spot. But 20th Century Fox promises this one have 5% new footage! That's a bonus, right? Let us know if you can spot it.
Over the past few months, we've seen Deadpool celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas in his own unconventional way. Now that the NFL playoffs are in full swing, the Merc With the Mouth is celebrating the only way he knows how. This video shows Ryan Reynolds' title character seemingly lining up a "field goal," only to kick one of his enemies square in the head. Last week, Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh missed a chip shot field goal that would have won the game against the Seattle Seahawks.
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. Deadpool is slated for release on February 12, 2016, going up against Warner Bros.' How to Be Single and Paramount's Zoolander 2.
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. Take a look at the new banner and Ryan Reynolds photo as we continue the countdown towards Deadpool.
What remains to be seen is if 20th Century Fox will actually plunk down some big bucks to promote Deadpool during the Super Bowl. The cost of a single 30-second TV spot is reportedly $5 million this year, so we'll have to wait and see if the studio has any plans for the Merc With the Mouth to invade the big game, which airs Sunday, February 7 on CBS, just five days before the movie hits theaters.
