Deadpool Trailer

"Cue the music!" 20th Century Fox has unveiled the very first red band + green band trailers for Deadpool, directed by VFX veteran Tim Miller, starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth. This is the moment you've all been waiting for as we finally get to see if this is going to be any good, and hot damn, it looks awesome. In addition to Reynolds, the cast includes Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Ed Skrein as Ajax, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Andre Tricoteux as Colossus. This is definitely something Marvel Studios wouldn't make, as it's super vulgar and violent and exactly what we wanted to see out of this. Oh so good! Watch it again & again below.

Here's the first official red band trailer for Tim Miller's Deadpool, direct from Fox's YouTube:

And for a look back, here's the original "trailer trailer" from yesterday teasing this trailer launch:

Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary known for his or his sarcastic, talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall. The film will also include T.J. Miller ("Silicon Valley), Morena Baccarin ("Homeland"), Gina Carano (Haywire) and Ed Skein (The Transporter Refueled). Filming took place in Vancouver. Fox will release Deadpool on February 16th early next year.

The trailer wasn't bad, but the jokes weren't the best, either. Here's hoping this isn't showing the better half of the humor it has to offer.

Leftwinged_Bandit on Aug 4, 2015


Agreed, I think it will be funnier than the trailer. I did like TJ Millers quips.

Jon Odishaw on Aug 5, 2015


Lmao that was good. A lot better than what I was expecting and props for the Green Lantern pun :).

TK on Aug 4, 2015


Wow....I almost forgot that Reynolds was the Green Lantern....haha!!

TheOct8pus on Aug 5, 2015


with you on all of that; they had only my curiosity, but now they have my attention. they're going for sarcastic, meta in-joke beat-em-up in the trailer, and not taking themselves too seriously while they do it. fair play to them for committing to that style and not trying to be all things to all people. hope they can sustain the mood in the trailer for the whole film. props indeed.

yep, even Calvin's more interested after that trailer.

son_et_lumiere on Aug 6, 2015


Looks like a fun time.

Brian Sleider on Aug 4, 2015


it wasn't that bad but the jokes don't work that good..... doubts I have.....

Capitalization !!

Tester on Aug 5, 2015


Oops! sorry!

ari smulders on Aug 5, 2015


No space between letter and exclamation mark!

Nash on Aug 5, 2015


Double exclamation at the end acceptable ?

Tester on Aug 5, 2015


Yes sir! But it's only to express the gravity of a situation. It doesn't have a grammatical meaning.

Nash on Aug 5, 2015


a space is fine esp if u have two or three exclamations

Dominic on Aug 7, 2015


No, a space between the last word in a sentence and an exclamation mark is wrong in English grammer. In this article You can read why some people do it anyway. And "esp" and "u" are of course 'wrong' too...

Nash on Aug 7, 2015


Dope trailer.

Jorrell Mcdaniel on Aug 4, 2015


Fox finally gives us a faithful representation of Deadpool ripped straight from the comics filled with blood, language, and tons of meta still complain.

Jordan Odinson on Aug 4, 2015


It's almost like they only listened to fans. This movie looks exactly just for them.

capitandelespacio on Aug 5, 2015


knowing the internet, they'll complain anyway.

dan on Aug 5, 2015


I'm complaining about your comment! .....and about any responses that I might get! ....sorry...

TheOct8pus on Aug 5, 2015


...Same as it ever was, I'm afraid.

ProjectionistHP on Aug 4, 2015


Well at least every one was not lying about Fox allowing them to go for the hard R rating. DIG IT!!~

DAVIDPD on Aug 4, 2015


Quite funny. This seems to have been coming out for about 90 years.

Carpola on Aug 5, 2015


alex, you say above "this is something marvel wouldn't make...." so, marvel isn't involved in this? btw - the movie looks like it'll be a FUN watch!

dan on Aug 5, 2015


It's a Fox production, made using their deal. I'm not sure how much Marvel is involved, but it seems very much like an independent creation.

Alex Billington on Aug 5, 2015


I think the general audience is still a bit confused by the whole Marvel Studios vs. 21st Century Fox vs. Sony Pictures Entertainment thing.

DAVIDPD on Aug 5, 2015


Yes, yes they are.

Alex Billington on Aug 6, 2015


thanks for that. it's interesting, because I'm never interested in the marvel movies (I have big hope for the new FF though). and, when I saw this, I thought marvel had finally made a movie that I can't wait to see - and then I find that marvel really isn't involved. while I know it can't happen, I'd love to see a movie where deadpool and hitgirl team up - would be awesome.

dan on Aug 5, 2015


You sure about that Alex? How come the Marvel logo comes up right after he makes that Rosie O'Donnell joke and there's the explosion?

Joker's hideout on Aug 6, 2015


Because they own the IP and gave the rights for the movie to be made. It would be illegal to not credit Marvel in this movie. However, that does not necessarily imply that they are heavily involved, if at all.

Mark Alters on Aug 7, 2015


I hope they kept the better jokes out of the trailer. The Deadpool game had very funny moments/jokes >

CosminD on Aug 5, 2015


It all feels and seems bit empty in some sort of way, hope not.

Trey on Aug 5, 2015


I am a big comic book reader/collector/fan but I absolutely HATE the unappeasable, troll fanboys. Here's what I have to say (if anyone cares, and if not... it's okay): 1. Fanboys complain no matter what. If the studio sticks really close and true to the source material the fans complain that all the director did was rip off the comic and brought nothing original to it (Watchmen).... then if it strays a little bit, they crucify it and shit talk it (Watchmen... the ending, and almost any comic book movie). 2. The costume in Deadpool looks amazing. Probably the best adaptation of a comic to screen costume done yet! I haven't seen anyone complain but I just wanted to put that out there, that it's awesome! 3. Fans complain about how it doesn't seem funny... WHAT? You haven't even seen the movie! You saw like 3 minutes of cut up footage, and some of it was pretty fucking funny. 4. When fans say the story seems empty or something along those lines... C'mon... I respect comic books as a medium and am not trying to belittle them in any way but seriously... it's DEADPOOL not SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION! Just go and have fun, this movie looks like it'll be funny and awesome. End rant.

Blake on Aug 5, 2015


I agree with everything you said, but SADLY...

DAVIDPD on Aug 5, 2015


Thank you for your incredibly wise words, fanboy lizard king. Your word is law. I can't believe people have the AUDACITY to express their own opinions. It's absolutely unacceptable.

tree on Aug 5, 2015



Jon Odishaw on Aug 5, 2015


Yup, that is my name.

tree on Aug 5, 2015


You're welcome, Mom. I didn't say anyone's opinions are wrong. Just that I find them annoying when they complain no matter how the movie turns out.

Blake on Aug 5, 2015


People wanting quality films with solid story telling, acting, directing etc. regardless of genre, isn't a valid complaint then? That's just annoying?

tree on Aug 5, 2015


I dont understand how people are saying "it wasnt funny"??? What would severely disappoint me is if the movie IS NOT as funny as the trailer and that is all we get. To hear Reynolds bring Deadpool to life was amazing, and recently the only comparison was the Deadpool video game ... which has nice action as well as laughs. But as long as we get the Deadpool personalities this is going to do very well. As for those ripping you for what you stated ... they can go scratch ... you said it perfectly. As I said before, the fortune teller commenters who can somehow see into the future need to relax and wait until the movie is actually out

John Ropes on Aug 5, 2015


Dopest dope.

Franklin Carpio on Aug 5, 2015


Refreshingly violent. Let's hope the films contains a couple of well placed C bombs.

Payne by name on Aug 5, 2015


Looks amazing. That was Colossus right? Very cool.

David Diaz on Aug 5, 2015


Hmm... neat. Not the best trailer I've seen, but I think it's (refreshingly,) not trying to give away the best/funniest parts of the movie. Will see regardless.

avconsumer2 on Aug 5, 2015


Edgar Wright needs to direct something like this..... (yes, yes....Scott Pilgrim....something grittier would be nice)

TheOct8pus on Aug 5, 2015


Agreed. I think he would make a good adaption of the RUNAWAYS comic.

DAVIDPD on Aug 5, 2015


I would love to see an R rated, original sci-fi/action from mister Edgar.

Jon Odishaw on Aug 5, 2015


How DARE you diss 'The Pilgrim'.

Zathras11 @B5 on Aug 5, 2015


Haha. Not dissing. I love Scotty P.

TheOct8pus on Aug 5, 2015


I not only love Scott Pilgrim, also love Edgar Wright's movies, but also think DC should capitalize him for some of their movies.

capitandelespacio on Aug 5, 2015


I wouldn't be surprised if Edgar signed a contract with Marvel saying he won't direct any DC movies for 100 years or something....if he did direct a DC film, it would totally be a giant F.U. to Marvel... Anyway, I don't really see Edgar doing a DC movie because DC wants all their movies to be dark and serious, whereas Wright is super playful. Who knows, maybe Marvel will stop being such dicks to him and let him do something with them.

TheOct8pus on Aug 6, 2015


The only joke I really liked was him requesting that his suit not be animated. Does that make me an unappeasable troll fanboy? It looks well made otherwise though.

OfficialJab on Aug 5, 2015


Nope--it was a very funny joke, to be sure...and while I liked the trailer, I am more interested in seeing the finished film. The trailer has made a good case for it.

Scopedog on Aug 6, 2015


TJ Miller was the only funny part of the trailer. I dunno why I'm not on board, but I'm not. I'll wait until someone I trust sees it, my friends have more time than me, and are less picky. Insert obligatory: Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and I have yet to see a super hero movie I've enjoyed.

tree on Aug 5, 2015



Cyberdine on Aug 5, 2015


Awesome. His face looks better than it looked on the fuzzy comic-con leak. I'm excited at the prospect r-rated sword fighting. Also r-rated Ryan Reynolds...

Eric Lankford on Aug 5, 2015


It would be so cool to have a superhero who fights against poverty. But ok, despite the fact, this doesn't look like anything special, but could be fun in some respect and watchable at some occasion ...

shiboleth on Aug 5, 2015


You know, even if it disappoints (which I doubt it will), I'm just so happy it finally got MADE.

Lar Rackell on Aug 5, 2015


This might be released 17 years too late.

ragethorn on Aug 6, 2015


They finally did justice to Colossus!!! He looks great!

Cyberdine on Aug 6, 2015


Looks pretty good to me!
