There’s just under a week to go until Deadpool hits theaters, and that’s enough time for one last, big marketing push from 20th Century Fox. Star Ryan Reynolds and his colleagues were reportedly all over the Bay Area this weekend, handing out chimichangas and taking over a local bar, and their big weekend culminated today in an appropriately irreverent Deadpool Super Bowl spot. The big game may be sacred territory for much of America, but nothing is off-limits for the Merc with a Mouth. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
In just under a couple weeks, fans will be getting the Deadpool movie they’ve been wanting for years. The film starring Ryan Reynolds is officially R-rated, and the Merc with a Mouth comic creator has said it’s the best version of his character that he’s ever seen. The movie is so dirty that it has been banned in China. But if for some reason the film isn’t as raunchy as fans hoped, co-star T.J. Miller says there will be a much dirtier Deadpool director’s cut coming later this year. Read More »

The first Deadpool clip has arrived and it’s probably not what you’d expect. The red-suited “merc with a mouth” is nowhere to be seen. There are no edged weapons or firearms. The wisecracks are few. There’s not even a single drop of blood! However, we do get Ryan Reynolds‘ Wade Wilson and Morena Baccarin‘s Vanessa Carlysle having a sweet little scene that seemingly exists just so it can climax with two out-of-nowhere dirty jokes, one of which involves (pixelated) Ryan Reynolds nudity.
Check out the clip, and Ryan Reynolds’ posterior, below.

It’s hard to believe, but we’re just a little under three weeks away from finally see the Deadpool movie that fans were hoping to get for years. Ryan Reynolds is playing the version of the Merc with the Mouth that he should have been in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and fans who attended a couple of advanced screenings a few days ago had a lot of good things to say. Now the comic character’s creator, Rob Liefeld, has chimed in with his two cents on chimichanga champ, and he couldn’t be happier.
Plus, there’s also a Deadpool promotional video that has Ryan Reynolds helping to celebrate Australia Day. Though he does seem to take issue with Australia giving us Wolverine, or rather Hugh Jackman. Read More »

There’s a reason it took so much time and effort for the Deadpool movie to come together – this character is a tough sell to anyone who doesn’t drop too much money at their local comic book retailer every Wednesday. Although popular amongst the initiated, he’s far from a household name and his oddball combination of goofy humor and extreme violence is a hard left turn from traditional cinematic super-heroics. We won’t know for a few more weeks whether or not ordinary people will embrace an R-rated superhero movie starring a character who is essentially a murderous, red-suited Bugs Bunny who has already been banned in China.
But do know this: Deadpool has screened early in Los Angeles and New York City and the response from fans has been very positive so far. We know this because they took to Twitter to express their enthusiasm with exclamation points and emojis.

We under a month away from seeing the wacky and dangerous Merc with a Mouth take the big screen properly in 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool. And while fans are extremely excited to see the film will all the cursing, violence, and nudity they were hoping for from the officially R-rated comic book flick starring Ryan Reynolds, the censors in China are less than thrilled with the film’s content. In fact, they have denied permission for the film to screen in China at all. Find out more below. Read More »
Last weekend, 20th Century Fox delivered quite the fun Christmas gift in the form of two Deadpool trailers, a green-band trailer and a preferred, raunchy red-band trailer. Plus, a couple new photos debuted yesterday as well. But if that wasn’t enough Deadpool to tickle your fancy just the way the Merc with a Mouth likes, then this new batch of images from the movie might do the trick. Especially since they seem to create a link to another developing mutant-centric project at Fox.
Check out the photos and find out more below! Read More »

Although X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool may belong to the same universe, they couldn’t look more different. The former promises tons of doom and gloom (as befits a movie about the lower-case-A apocalypse being waged by a capital-A Apocalypse), whereas the latter takes a much more irreverent, NSFW approach. But they do have one other thing in common: both have revealed new looks today, in advances of their releases next year. See new Deadpool photos and some intriguing X-Men concept art after the jump.

I spent a good 15 minutes or so of my Christmas holiday explaining Deadpool to my in-laws. That new red band trailer had arrived online and they were so full of questions. Who is this guy? What’s his deal? When does the movie open? In other words, this purely anecdotal piece of evidence suggests that the Deadpool marketing is starting to do its job. If the older members of my extended family, already gently lowered into geekdom by the X-Men and Marvel Studios movies, are curious about Marvel’s “merc with a mouth,” then maybe this thing will play beyond the already initiated.
And while I explained the trailer in the living room, the internet was busy picking apart the trailer. And while internet commenters the world over were going through this thing shot-by-shot, director Tim Miller was sitting down to answer all (well, most) of your pressing questions. Let’s check out this official Deadpool trailer breakdown.

For the days leading up to Christmas, Deadpool has blessed us with the gift of comedy videos in anticipation of his new trailer. And now that Christmas day is here, 20th Century Fox says its time to open our presents:
“Are you in need of holiday cheer? Rejoice! For Deadpool’s all new Christmas trailer is here! It’s Christmas Day, when Deadpool decorates with trailers Red & Green. One that’s “nice” and one that’s “naughty” (the way it’s meant to be seen).”
The Deadpool Christmas trailers play with the idea of a superhero movie, and do a good job of selling this story as something different. We get an extended look at Colossus and a better look at the violent stylized action. Hit the jump now to watch both the new NSFW red band and SFW green band trailers for Deadpool.
