‘Deadpool’ looks to walk new ground in the realm of super hero movies, just as the character does in comics. The movie will remain faithful, blending over-the-top violence with off-the-wall humor, with both elements evident in the trailer that debuted at Comic Con (and then leaked online). Even though the movie won’t slay theatergoers until next spring, to keep the momentum going, Fox has released three new images.
Then we get a really cool action pose with the antihero during (after?) the exciting SUV highway battle showcased in he trailer:
And finally, ‘Deadpool’ will include scenes set in the past, before Wade Wilson undergoes the process to gain super human powers (and becomes hideously deformed). Here is a sampling of that, with a still pretty Wilson with his female lead Vanessa Carlyle a.k.a. Copycat, played by geek goddess Morena Baccarin.
Though Fox has attempted to halt online distribution of the R-rated footage that was shown at Comic Con, the studio has another Marvel Comic-based movie debuting next week, ‘Fantastic Four’. Expect Fox to capitalize on that by releasing an official, all-ages trailer to play before ‘FF.’ After that, the same spot will likely become available online and on TV.
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.
