Ryan Reynolds has gone from cute and deadly to downright lethal and hilarious at the same time as he returns as Deadpool (X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2009), this time in a spin-off movie.
The movie preview received a standing ovation at 2015 Comic-Con in July and now the trailer for Deadpool, with its tagline, “With great power comes great irresponsibility,” is capturing hearts everywhere as Reynolds dons the mantle of Wade Wilson, a.k.a. the supersoldier called Deadpool. The movie centres around Wade who goes under the knife to trade liver, lungs, prostate and brain cancer for superpowers with these words, “Just make sure you do right by me, so I can do right by somebody else. And just don’t make my suit green — or animated!”
At the Comic Con, Reynolds had expressed his surprise that the movie was able to see the light of day, “For one, I think it’s an absolute miracle that a studio let us make Deadpool, let alone a rated-R Deadpool.”
True to the Marvel comics universe, Deadpool is a fountain of wisecracks which takes nothing away from him skill and prowess as a deadly superhero. You won’t know whether to be in splits or hold your breath when Deadpool kicks serious butt with the words, “Daddy needs to express some rage.” His puns are as good as his kicks!
A first time directorial venture by Tim Miller, the movie, which is scheduled to hit the silver screens on February 12, 2016, also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand and Leslie Uggams.
