Here, watch the NSFW trailer before we talk…
Deadpool is the highly anticipated film based on the fan-favorite “Merc with a Mouth.” Despite his underwhelming appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, demand for the character has never really subsided…even from film’s star Ryan Reynolds, who has been campaigning for a Deadpool movie for years now.
The trailer gives us a whole bunch of jokes, violence, and nudity…showcasing the film’s R-rating. We do get a few meta-jokes as well, most notably in the form of a jab at the star’s former superhero venture as the Green Lantern.
Remember, despite being a Marvel character, this is not a Marvel Studios film…so don’t expect to see Deadpool hanging out with the Avengers any time soon. The film is set to be released on February 16, 2016.
What do we think of all this? We’ll hold off judgement on the footage until we see more. But that doesn’t mean you have to the same! Let us know if you think the trailer is doing the character justice in the comments below!
