SAN DIEGO – The first “Deadpool” trailer debuted Saturday (July 11) at San Diego Comic-Con and mixed in with the action, laughs and naughty bits — it is rated R, after all – were a couple of barbs at star Ryan Reynolds’ previous foray into superhero movies, the 2011 flop “The Green Lantern.”
In the trailer, Wade Wilson says as he’s being wheeled into the surgery that will turn him into alter ago Deadpool, “Please don’t make the supersuit green. Or animated,” Zap2It reported.
Then later during the panel, Reynolds tells the audience that “Deadpool” is “the most faithful adaptation of a comic book to a movie I’ve ever seen,” though he then admits, “I’ve only ever done one other proper — actually, not proper — superhero movie.”
But he adds that it’s “an absolute miracle that a studio let [them] make ‘Deadpool,’ let alone a rated-R ‘Deadpool.’”
And the trailer doesn’t disappoint in that department. It’s full of kick-butt action and lots of naughty quips, which accompany the tagline, “With great power comes great irresponsibility.”
“Deadpool,” co-starring Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Andre Tricoteux and Leslie Uggams, opens Feb. 12, 2016.
