While the ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ trailer was all well and good, no trailer at San Diego Comic-Con so far this year was as well received as the one for ‘Deadpool’. In fact, fans loved that portion of 20th Century Fox’s panel so much that they immediately chanted to see it one more time. But for those of us not in attendance in Hall H on Saturday night, we can see it for the first time (if you’re quick enough).
After a rousing, foul-mouthed Q&A session with stars Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, and director Tim Miller, True Believers were treated to the very first trailer for the Merc With A Mouth’s upcoming feature film. While some of us may have seen bits of this footage before from the leaked test reel, there was plenty more to be excited about. Amidst all the hard R material scattered throughout the video, there were shots at ‘Green Lantern’ (which is getting rebooted without Reynolds), plenty of fourth-wall-breaking, and the hilarious and irreverent quips that Wade Wilson is known for. Now, you can check out the leaked trailer below courtesy of Comic Book Movie, followed by the official synopsis of the movie:

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.
Hopefully the studio releases the trailer online soon because this would be an excellent thing to see in a better resolution. While we can still laugh at the jokes, especially the ones between our hero and T.J. Miller’s Weasel, it’s hard to get a good look at all the great action too. Until then, let us know what you think about the ‘Deadpool’ trailer in the comment section.
‘Deadpool’ starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano, and Ed Skrein hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
