| The Merc with a Mouth |
The Merc with a Mouth is on his way. And we are nowhere near prepared to see the beginning of this happy ending.
Following the 45-second Trailer Trailer that premiered the day before – teasing our socks off, the Deadpool Red Band Trailer was released during Conan on August 4th, 2015.
Frantically refreshing their twitter timelines and YouTube subscriptions, Tuesday night comic book nerds impatiently waited at the edge of their seats with televisions locked on TBS anticipating for the long-awaited Deadpool trailer.
Whether you heard about Deadpool yesterday or twenty years ago this sneak peak got you more excited than you thought you should be.
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.
Fox’s marketing team has done an amazing job at not only embodying the character that is Wade Wilson but branching Wilson’s persona outside of the movie screen. Prime example – the “official website” for the film redirects you to Deadpool’s Pinterest account. No joke. It now redirects you to the reb Band trailer. Here are some screen caps below from the Pinterest of the rude and crude Deadpool.
From chimichangas to Hello Kitty, Deadpool stands to be one of the most eccentric superhumans with a personality to die for. A blend of just the right amount of sass, gore, and a sprinkle of douchebag – Marvel may be able to prove to its rival DC Comics that you don’t have to go dark or all age friendly to be a great film.
The trailer opens up with a cliche superhero movie super-serious-situation fake out then breaks off into Salt ‘n’ Peppa’s “Shoop” thus skyrocketing us into the foul mouth savage theme of the trailer. Deadpool is scene awaiting his enemies, but in the meantime is sitting on the guardrail of a highway illustrating a childlike drawing of him giving his opponent an “ouchie!”.
As a comic book fan I am not only excited for how right Deadpool seems like it’s going to be done, but that this film is going to be so far left from the cliche-clusters that are superhero films.
Overall, as an entity we secretly hope and pray that Fox will resurrect the horror that was Deadpool in Wolverine and eradicate that dark time. We all know that lingering pain from seeing Deadpool done so wrong in Wolverine
and the damage that was done to Green Lantern that one can only match to the pain The Last Airbender fans feel everyday resenting M. Night Shyamalan. Personally, I was sketched out by the idea of Ryan Reynolds playing another comic book hero, especially in a completely different comic-verse. However, I think we all have a feeling that surfaces more and more as the sneak peeks and trailers roll out left and right that Reynolds will hold up the character.
There’s a hunormous possibility that the Merc with a Mouth will reshape the structure of what superhero films stand to be. Not that the happy go lucky Ant-Man type pictures will be dissipating, now that Disney owns Marvel. However, with production backing from a separate entity such as Fox, Deadpool will set a mold for R rated anti-hero films int he film industry.
TL;DR:Deadpool is blazing foul mouthed hilarious trails exuding full fledged awesomeness.
Deadpool from 20th Centaury FOX is set to premiere February 2016.
Did Ryan Reynolds throw comic book meta shade at Green Lantern? AMC take my money, please.
