The tide of Deadpool images and promotional materials has slowed down to a bit of a trickle, which may be a good thing considering that the film doesn’t even hit theaters until February — and we’ve already seen so, so much from it. But 20th Century Fox has released a new, very cool image today, featuring the Merc With a Mouth flying through the air like an action hero badass.
Marvel's Deadpool is so insanely popular he got his own team book full of other Deadpools. That's a real thing that happened. One of those Deadpools just so happened to be his female incarnation from another dimension, Wanda Wilson. She's got all the abilities and powers of the standard 616 universe's Deadpool, minus the horrible recurring cancer (hers was completely healed). As such, she's actually not a scarred mess under the mask. She boldly sacrificed herself to save the universe from Galactipool, who was part of a massive evil Deadpool invasion of sorts. Now her memory can live on thanks to Kotobukiya and its bishoujo line.
Though Ajax (Ed Skrien) is the villain in Deadpool, he doesn’t have the name recognition of some of the other superhero movies. He’s not Ultron or Dr. Doom or Green Goblin or Joker or even Apocalypse. He’s, frankly, a character most audiences won’t know. While this movie might have a largely unrecognizable villain, expect that to change in Deadpool 2 as a major Marvel character will be facing off against the Merc With a Mouth.
Deadpool and Thanos have something in common; they're both in love with death. Sorry; Death --- the anthropomorphic personifcation of death. In fact, they've both dated her. That certainly gives Death's two ex-boyfriends something to talk about, and in Tim Seeley and Elmo Bondoc's upcoming Deadpool Vs Thanos four-issue series, it looks like they'll be doing most of the talking with their fists. Or guns. Or explosions. But it looks like they'll have to work together when their mutual paramour goes AWOL.
Yes, Death is missing. It's going to get violent. Check out the covers and unlettered preview pages below, featuring a surprise appearance by... Doctor Doom?
Ryan Reynolds dropped by Conan tonight to debut the red band trailer for Deadpool — because if you’re going to give Deadpool a proper introduction, you’re going to do so with a respectable amount of violence and profanity. After months of promising an R-rated, faithful adaptation of beloved comic book character, Reynolds seems to be delivering.
The internet hasn’t been friendly with Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four since day one and with the movie opening in less than a week, everyone still seems pretty baffled by it. What is this movie? What really went on behind the scenes? Is it good? Can it be good? And why does Deadpool pop up at the end of this new extended trailer?
We normally like to steer clear of the “trailer for a trailer” phenomena that results in photos of a 6-second Instagram video of a 15-second YouTube video teaser of an actual trailer. It’s a toxic fad in the world of movie promotion and one we hope goes away quickly, but we couldn’t resist sharing this trailer for a trailer for Deadpool. For one, it’s almost a minute long, and for another, it’s just funny.
Although 20th Century Fox never released the Deadpool footage screened at Comic-Con, Ryan Reynolds assured fans that we’d see the first footage in a few weeks. And now we know exactly when and where we’ll get to see that footage, as not one, but two official Deadpool trailers will drop next week.
With seventy-five years of shared universe history spread out over multiple companies and periodical continuity reboots and multiple earths, getting into superhero comics can be a daunting task for anyone uninitiated into the genre. Why on earth do we have to make it so much harder for new fans by making their names so confusingly similar?
With Deadpool set to return to the big screen in 2016, Deadshot being prominently featured in the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie, Deathstroke being a major player on TV's Arrow, and Deathlok recurring on Agents of SHIELD, casual fans are being bombarded with a surfeit of the "[death][noun]" formula. Add to that the fact that most of these guys tote giant guns, swords, full face masks and/or reticles over their eyes, and that's just a recipe for confusion.
We've collected images of some of the best Deadpool cosplayers around from the past few years, showcasing their excellent creations. They're sure to impress Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, who created old Wade Wilson back in 1991 in New Mutants #98. One of them even has his own yellow word balloons! I bet Ryan Reynolds won't have that!
