I am not the biggest Deadpool fan (I actually despise him in comic book form) but this trailer for the upcoming DEADPOOL movie has me rethinking my stance. This movie looks like it will be insanely fun, probably the most out and out fun comic book movie to be released so far in this comic book movie boom period. It is also a pretty major rehab of the character and its star as the first time Deadpool appeared on film was in the dreadful X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE movie where they took away everything distinctive about the character (they even sewed his mouth shit for some odd reason) and made him just some basic super-powered ninja guy. And Ryan Reynolds looks to be more likely to have success with this movie than he had with the disappointing GREEN LANTERN film he starred in and was given too much of the blame for.
Plus it has Colossus in it and he looks like Colossus is supposed to look instead of some shiny weirdo like in the X-Men movies.
One thought on “Trailer of the Day: Deadpool”
I’m so glad this and the sequel came out and they are awesome!
