A steady stream of tweets and leaked videos attest to the wildly enthusiastic reaction given to Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool trailer, which the actor introduced this week during a surprise visit to Comi-Con 2015.
It is safe to say the more than one renegade audience member in the gadget-happy crowd filmed the trailer for the R-rated film, as it was shown. The film is scheduled, otherwise, for a February 2016 release in North America.
The film features Brazilian beauty Morena Baccarin as Vanessa and Ed Skrein as Francis / Ajax. T.J. Miller plays “Weasel” and Gina Carano plays Angel Dust, while Reynolds reprises the role he played in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Many are saying that Reynolds is custom-fit for the part of Deadpool, who is billed as an “anti-hero,” due to the terminal cancer diagnosis that underlies his motivation. Given this back story, the Deadpool trailer includes the tag line, “With great power comes great irresponsibility,” which is the twisted version of Spiderman’s motto, of course, because Deadpool and Spider-dude are closely misaligned Marvel inventions.
