Ever since the atrocity that was ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ hit theaters, True Believers have been clamoring for a proper big screen version of Deadpool. And after jumping a number of hurdles over the years, it looks like we’ll finally be getting a feature film adaptation of the Merc With A Mouth worthy of the fan favorite character next month. Now in anticipation for the upcoming release, we have some new promotional material featuring never before seen footage from the movie.
With Tim Miller’s ‘Deadpool’ hitting theaters around Valentine’s Day, it’s been pretty great to see the marketing team take advantage of the holiday by making the film look like a romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin. But as we all know, that isn’t exactly the case, especially when it comes to the first clip titled “Kinky Sex Questions”. Any clip with a title like that doesn’t need any more explanation from me. Here it is, followed by the official synopsis of the film:
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.
On top of the first clip from the movie, we have a few new promos spotlighting Wade Wilson’s supporting cast. Not only do we get to see more of T.J. Miller’s Weasel, but we also get new looks at Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Ajax, and Blind Al. You may even spot some familiar locations from throughout the ‘X-Men’ universe like the X-Mansion and the Blackbird. You can check out the spots below:

Most movies these days tend to spoil half of the plot with TV spots, trailers, and clips, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with ‘Deadpool’. If this were any other superhero film, we would’ve been flooded with a plethora of materials at this point. But all Fox really has to do (which they have been doing) is capitalize on Deadpool’s uncanny ability to be a lovable, comedic, and badass fool. And so far, that’s enough to get the audience excited about the studio’s next Marvel mutant adventure. But with the Super Bowl coming up, could ol’ DP have some extra special antics up his sleeves? No not really knows, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw even more of the unorthodox anti-hero in the coming weeks.
‘Deadpool’ starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano, and Ed Skrein hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
