Deadpool Trailer(s) Arrive!

A good half hour before the Deadpool trailer aired on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show yesterday, the internet got it first (as it always does, really). Deadpool footage came to us in two cuts-a cleaner version and a not so clean version. When I say clean, I don’t mean quality, I mean innocence. Yes, the red band trailer features everything that makes Deadpool Deadpool in every sense. Blood, guts, harsh language, and even some good ol’ fashioned love making (nothing really is seen in that that’s inappropriate. You really only get to see Ryan Reynolds’ perfectly scuplted back).

You can watch the highly inappropriate but “perfectly-in-tune-with-the-character” trailer below.

Oh what’s that? You want to watch the safer one? The one without all the potty words? Eh, ok fine. But let it be known that you’re only denying yourself what you really should be watching.

Ryan Reynolds’ appearance on Conan led to the actor talking about seeing the Deadpool costume for the first time. According to Reynolds, he and director Tim Miller “teared up” due to the reality of the movie coming to fruition in seeing that suit. For Reynolds, Miller, and a buttload of fans, a Deadpool movie was always seemingly out of reach. However, the trailer is here, it’s real, and it is awesome! Reynolds and Miller might have cried seeing the suit; I’m sure a lot of people are crying at the beauty they are handling this character with.

Ok, well dry those tears, everybody! You can’t watch the trailer 15,000 times through wet eyeballs!

Ryan Reynolds will be playing Wade Wilson who will be Deadpool who will beat up a lot of people February 12th, 2016. Chimichanga!
