20th Century Fox has given us a sweet little treat for X-Mas day; a second red-band trailer for their upcoming superhero movie about our Merc with the Mouth, Deadpool! The trailer can be viewed in the player below.
Based on Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary, who — after being subjected to a rogue experiment which leaves him with accelerated healing powers — adopts the alter ego, Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Wilson hunts down the men who have destroyed his life.
Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular anti-hero, along with T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, Big Hero 6) as Weasel, Gina Carano (Haywire, Fast & Furious 6) as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin (Firefly, V, Gotham) as Copycat and Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones, Transporter: Refueled) as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, once played by Daniel Cudmore, will now be played by Andre Tricoteux.
Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) will provide the film’s script, while Tim Miller (OS for Thor: The Dark World & The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) will serve as director. Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
