The First Trailer Is Here: “Deadpool” (2016)

Logo - Deadpool

Sorry for the delay my fiends but if you will forgive me I will get to sharing the first official trailer for the 2016 film “Deadpool” – I got sidelined by some tour happenings that needed to be posted first but here we go…..Oh yeah and this doesn’t say “NSFW” for no good reason, so headphones if you must watch it around your office colleagues.

The Premise: 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.

Some Cast:
Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool
Morena Baccarin as Vanessa
Ed Skrein as Ajax
T. J. Miller as Weasel
Gina Carano as Angel Dust
Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Andre Tricoteux as Colossus
Leslie Uggams as Blind Al

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m always on the fence when it comes to Ryan Reynolds in a role and lets face it, almost ALL of us hated what he did in “Green Lantern”. That said I have to admit that this looks like a fantastic and fun ride. I’m willing to guess that it is going to more than make up for the disappointment that most are going to find with the other 20th Century Fox Marvel Comics property “Fantastic Four” that opens up in a couple of days. What I loved about the stuff we see here in the trailer is that it seems to capture Deadpool’s obnoxious essence pretty well. The action and violence seem on point and you parents might want to shield your kids ears from some of the colorful language. So that is all I have for this trailer, what do you readers think? Will you see this one? Let me know in the comments section below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not up to speed on the storyline that this film follows but I have enjoyed most of the DC Animated Universe so far. One has to wonder if the eventually arriving big screen universe can contend with what they are doing on home video. Let’s see if they can match their own quality. I will likely rent this on Amazon.com or wait until it comes to Netflix if they choose to run it. Will you be renting this one or purchasing on DVD when it comes out in a few more weeks. Let me know down below.
