With great power comes great irresponsibility.

Less than a week of sleeps! Ryan Reynolds will debut the official Deadpool Redband trailer next Tuesday, August 4th, on Conan. Screening of a profane, hilarious and violent clip brought San Diego Comic Con to its feet — chanting “one more time” — earlier this month. While we wait, FOX shared three new official images.
Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat.

Vancouver’s own Ryan Reynolds came home this past Spring to film big budget feature Deadpool directed by VFX whiz Tim Miller on a closed Georgia Viaduct, in a Surrey junk yard, a crappy apartment set in the former Terminal City Ironworks compound and various “dive” bars like the Cobalt Hotel and strip club No. 5 Orange.
Deadpool, aka The Merc With a Mouth, is the character Reynolds played in Wolverine, an X-Men Origins movie starring Hugh Jackman, but that film wasn’t true to darkly comic former special forces soldier-turned-mercenary. In Marvel comic-book lore, Wade Wilson is a wise-cracking gun-for-hire with cancer who partakes in military experiments as part of the Weapon X plan to cure himself by replicating Wolverine’s mutant ability to heal quickly. The experiment succeeds except Wilson ends up terribly scarred. In Wolverine, Deadpool was surgically altered and mouthless. Not this time. Deadpool movie Deadpool is an amoral obscene motormouth who never stops talking — and keeps breaking the fourth-wall to yack to the audience.
No longer vulnerable because of his new healing abilities, he hunts the man who wrecked his life — the villain Ajax (Ed Skrein) — and takes out any bad guys who get in his way with help from his sidekick, pal and arms dealer Weasel (T.J.Miller) and his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat. Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianne Hildebrand) is Colossus’s apprentice.
Release date: February 12, 2016.
