TRAILER TALK: Deadpool, Marvel’s glorious hard R-rated superhero movie boasting perhaps the best casting of Ryan Reynold’s EVER as the Merc’ with a Mouth!
No one is more excited than I am to see Deadpool in less than two months. Since ComicCon, we have been blessed by various teasers and trailers that tease of the R-rated superhero movie of a lifetime! At least…our lifetime so far.
Release date: February 12, 2016
With some notable exceptions like The Woman in Gold (2015), Buried (2010), Smokin’ Aces (2006), Safe House (2012) and The Amityville Horror (2005), Ryan Reynolds has always been that guy who pretty much plays various iterations of himself on screen. And we LOVE seeing him play that guy. Movies like The Change Up (2011), Buying the Cow (2002), Waiting (2005), Blade: Trinity (2004), Just Friends (2005) and even the generally detestable Green Lantern (2011) all gave us that Ryan Reynolds who, regardless of the quality of the movie in general, brings a smile to our face when he runs that witty mouth of his. I suppose the ladies also don’t mind seeing him without his shirt as well….so here’s Deadpool in a sultry pose in front of the fire!
Plus, I’m sure some folks are excited to see Gina Carano’s action as Angeldust and T. J. Miller’s dirty sense of humor. In fact, we were so excited that we discussed the Deadpool trailer in our recent podcast: Trailer Talk #2.
This new red band trailer shows loads of that Reynolds personality. In fact, it glows so brightly you have to wonder how much direction and script he was really given. These scenes just feel like…well…him being him–which is exactly what we all want! From tinkering with the window in the back seat of the cab and references to Shake-Weight infomercials to his playfully witty narration and prom sex peer pressure jokes, Reynolds gets to lay it on as thick as he wants.
This older trailer was every bit as enjoyable, showing Deadpool doodling while singing along to Salt ‘n Pepa, giving laughably expository speeches to bad guys, and then of course there’s all the descriptions of what he looks like.
