‘Deadpool’ Is Ready to Attend Your Ugly Christmas Sweater Party in New Poster
The 12 days of Deadpool continue with today’s offering, arriving just in time for national Ugly Christmas Sweater Day — which is actually a thing and has been since 2011, in case you were wondering. Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth sports an ugly holiday sweater of his very own, though if we’re being honest, it’s really not very ugly. It’s actually kind of classy for a foul-mouthed superhero.
Here’s the full version of the latest poster (via Fandango):
More amusing than the sweater is the adorable class photo style — so very Olan Mills in 1994.
20th Century Fox continues to release new Deadpool goodies every day until Christmas, when they’ll debut a brand new, full-length trailer during ESPN’s NBA show. If you’re busy with relatives or can’t be bothered to tune into something sports-related (we don’t blame you), the trailer will likely land online a few minutes after its television premiere.
The film stars Reynolds as the titular anti-hero, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Ed Skrein as Ajax, Gina Carano as Angel Dust and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. Here’s the official synopsis:
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool arrives on February 12, 2016.
