Last week, just before the Thanksgiving holiday, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds released a new video, where he teased an appearance at the Comic Con Experience in Sao Paulo, Brazil this weekend. The actor will be part of the 20th Century Fox panel that takes place tomorrow, December 4, where it's possible that we may get a first trailer. The Con is in full swing as we speak, and Twitter user Universo X-Men has spotted new standee displays for both Deadpool and the studio's other massive superhero adventure, X-Men: Apocalypse.
Producer Simon Kinberg confirmed last month that both the second Deadpool trailer and the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer will be arriving in December, but he didn't offer a specific premiere date. 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, but it's possible this footage will debut at Comic Con Experience and arrive online shortly thereafter.
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.
X-Men: Apocalypse brings one of the most powerful X-Men villains to life for the first time on the big screen. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel's X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Deadpool is set for release on February 12, 2016, with X-Men: Apocalypse arriving just a few months later on May 27, 2016. 20th Century Fox also has an October 7, 2016 release date set for another X-Men spinoff, Gambit, starring Channing Tatum, but since production was recently pushed to the spring of 2016, the release date may be pushed. The studio will release Wolverine 3, Hugh Jackman's final turn as the iconic Wolverine, on March 3, 2017. Take a look at these new standees below, and stay tuned for more as the Comic Con Experience continues in Brazil.
