Who’s ready for a good ol’ family superhero movie? Where the hero saves the world and gets the guy/girl in the end, all to have a happy ending? Welp, sorry nancy. Not this time. Do you know who Deadpool is? In case you don’t, imagine the sass of Spiderman, then let that sass run its own show on Adult Swim, only to be kicked off for being too offensive. That’s Deadpool.
Many people have been worried after the X-men Origins: Wolverine bastardization of Deadpool. (really? Just really?) However, teasers here and there have made it appear that Ryan Reynolds works as Deadpool. Fast forward to now. We now have the Red Band Trailer of Deadpool. And Ho-ly-shit. It works. It works so damn hard that I have to use adult language to describe it. He has the snarkiness, the sarcasm, the look, the attitude, and the comedy. What appears to be a serious movie at the beginning of the trailer is immediately obliterated. We are almost instantaneously greeted by some sass, then more, then we see the suit. THE suit. He drops into a car, kicks some dudes’ asses, then immediately starts up with sass again.
Oh, along with, you know, chunks of brain and skull flying from him shooting folks in the head, all while slinging his dual swords around. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Why are you sitting here reading me ramble on and on about this? Go watch the trailer… NOW!! You can thank me later.
