The DEADPOOL Christmas Trailer is the Gift that Keeps on Giving [124 Screenshots]

And on the 12th Day of Deadpool 20th Century Fox have given fans a new red band trailer. Jam packed full of bloody good action and that wisecracking wit the Merc with a Mouth is best known for, this Deadpool Christmas trailer has the perfect balance of naughty and nice. (If you cower in fear at the slightest word of curse or are opposed to violence, first, you probably aren’t interested in Deadpool to begin with, and second, maybe this more pansy green band trailer is what you seek.)

Expanding on what was presented in the Deadpool teaser shown earlier this year, we learn that Ajax (Ed Skrein) has kidnapped Wade Wilson’s (Ryan Reynolds) girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin). For what reason I can only assume it’s because if he has Vanessa held captive Ajax believes Deadpool will bow to his will. Of course that wouldn’t be any fun.

Touted as an origin story, Deadpool looks to favor more of a revenge tale rather than the wacky, mercenary hijinks seen in the comics – those will most likely come in a follow up sequel if this film proves successful. And for as much as I am on board for all the gloriousness that has been shown in the trailers – the mutants, humor, and self-awareness – I’m worried that the plot itself won’t be as fulfilling or original.

All of the marketing exudes confidence and suggests the filmmakers want to honor the character as best they can, which keeps me pretty optimistic. Now if only he could interact on the same playground as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Extended Commentary:

  • I’m excited for Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Her scene at the end of the trailer better not be the only time we see her using her powers, like the bazooka scene in Kick-Ass. It would be a shame if the trailer spoiled this reveal.
  • Speaking of Kick-Ass, I’m definitely getting that vibe based on the sarcastic superhero references.
  • Colossus looks a bit cartoony, but I’m sure his effects will be more polished in the final film.
  • Gina Carano looks mighty threatening. More than usual.
  • It would be amazing if Deadpool could be in Captain America: Civil War
  • I wonder if Wade will be fully trained before he turns full Deadpool or how they’re going to explain his ability to fight.
  • It must be convenient for the marketing team, and even editing team, for Deadpool to have his mouth covered up so they can make him say whatever they want.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Deadpool, courtesy of the Official movie website:

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.

Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Ed Skrein as Ajax, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, and Leslie Uggams as Blind Al. The film is set to be released in theaters on February 12, 2016.

12 Days of Deadpool Calendar

If 20th Century Fox stays true to the character’s roots, the 12 Days of Deadpool should bear a lot of fun, hilarious and maybe even naughty little presents leading up to the new trailer. I expect we’ll see some new posters, still images, and maybe even a few viral marketing pieces. In the mean time, you can check out the previous teaser trailer here to hold you over.

The First DEADPOOL Trailer Will Make You Touch Yourself Tonight (132 Screenshots)

[If you’re a big baby and don’t want to watch the red band trailer above, you can check out the green band trailer that tones down the adult content and naughty words of curse]

As promised, the first official Deadpool trailer debuted this evening. The red band trailer premiered during Conan on TBS with an extra special TV-MA rating due to its mature content – the show is typically rated TV-14. And with all that it beholds, I can’t say it really warrants the rating to an extreme degree. The language is a tad more adult, but a few sword stabs here and there and gun shot wounds to the head with blood splatters and brains are all that separates the red from the green.

The Deadpool trailer sells the movie fairly well for a less mainstream character than The Avengers or the X-Men. Deadpool definitely feels more fresh than other superhero movies as of late though. He isn’t tied down to a team nor is he obligated to any kind of big cinematic universe; although rumblings of an X-Men crossover is clear with the appearance of Colossus. I’m sure he won’t have a big part, but they’ve left that door wide open for many more possibilities from the X-Men universe – Cable anyone?

It’s a risky movie, and I think that this first Deadpool trailer plays it very safe. I expected a little more breaking of the fourth wall like they did in the teaser for this trailer, but they kept the shenanigans of the character to a minimum. Honestly, I think T.J. Miller had some of the best lines within the whole thing.

What I’ve noticed most about the Deadpool trailer is that it gives off this Kick-Ass vibe. It’s a pretty adult superhero film, with swords, meta commentary, and goofy comedy. Kick-Ass didn’t do as well at the box office, but hopefully moviegoers will give Deadpool a shot. Ryan Reynolds is a funny guy and more recognizable than Aaron Taylor-Johnson. He’s Van Wilder for Pete’s sake.

DEADPOOL Teaser for the Teaser Trailer is Breaking Down Walls

In the movie Just Friends, a romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynold and Amy Smart, there’s a song performed by Anna Faris claiming, “Forgiveness is more than saying sorry.” With the release of the Deadpool teaser trailer for the first trailer, 20th Century Fox is doing just that. This whole project feels more like an apology than anything else. We’ll see when the full-length trailer hits tomorrow.

This is a great approach to teasers for trailers though. More often than not, marketing teams will present 15 seconds of clips with the trailer voice over guy saying “tomorrow.” By embracing the kooky nature red-and-black suited vigilante and breaking the fourth wall, the 20th Century Fox has single-handedly produced an actual teaser that doesn’t suck. Lionsgate did a pretty good job with their teasers for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Other marketing teams should follow suit.

Bringing in the self-awareness of Deadpool, all the while making fun of the last iteration of the character created by the same studio, it conveys a very fun and ballsy attempt to show fanboys and girls that they’re really going for it. I like the character, and this definitely gives me hope that the movie could present a lot of joyous moments that will represent the character well. On the other hand, I can see how this weirdness could scare off potential moviegoers. It’s a bonkers character, and once released, Deadpool will most likely be compared to Kick-Ass due to its violent nature and meta elements. I’m excited. Good ruck everybody else.

UPDATE: 20th Century Fox has uploaded an additional, shorter teaser to incentivize folks to go see Fantastic Four in theaters this weekend. A bold move considering the lack of hype and enthusiasm surrounding the superhero reboot. The new teaser promises that you’ll see the full Deadpool trailer on the big screen if you go. Chimichanga!

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Deadpool, courtesy of the Official movie website:

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.

Ryan Reynolds Tweets First Image of ‘Deadpool’ in Costume

Ryan Reynolds gave us our first look at the “Merc with a Mouth” when he Tweeted himself in costume for the upcoming Deadpool movie today. After a very disappointing stint as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, fans will finally see the character the way he was truly meant to be.

With the highly anticipated Deadpool movie set for release in February of next year, Ryan Reynolds decided it best to tease fans by tweeting an official tongue-in-cheek photo of the iconic Deadpool costume a la Burt Reynolds’ – no relation – infamous centerfold in Cosmopolitan. While it is just an image, the tone serves as an indicator of what we can expect from the film. Clearly the team behind Deadpool definitely knows their audience as well as the satirical nature of the character.

In addition to a sneak peek of the official Deadpool costume, moviegoers were also treated to the launching of the Deadpool movie’s official Twitter as well as a synopsis listed on the Official Deadpool movie website:

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.

Now we know that the film will revolve around Deadpool’s origin story with Taken-esque elements of revenge driving the plot. Although, this is not anything too substantial, it is a lot more information than we have been privy to thus far.

Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa (confirmed on Instagram), T.J. Miller as Weasel (confirmed on Twitter), and Gina Carano as Angel Dust (confirmed on Hollywood Reporter). The film is set to be released in theaters on February 12, 2016.
