Ryan Reynolds stars in the first Deadpool trailer
Comic-con was all abuzz after Fox debuted the first footage from the highly anticipated DEADPOOL film. But despite numerous leaks hitting the internet, they refused to cave in and release any official footage, until now. I don’t know what the holdup was or why they didn’t release it to the public at the same time, but I’m guessing there’s a marketing theory behind it. But now that the footage is available for everyone to see and admire, I think Fox has a genuine hit on their hands. I don’t know how well it’s going to do at the box office, but the first trailer has me convinced this could be a franchise for them. Check it out below.
The official DEADPOOL synopsis: 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 stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand. The Tim Miller directed film hits theaters on February 12th, 2016.
