(Warning - not only is there Deadpool-themed ultra-violence and a whole lot of swearing to be found below, but if you're hoping to not know what that violence and swearing is before Deadpool hits, then what follows is very much SPOILER-ish...)
In a San Diego Comic-Con pretty light on big reveals or casting announcements, one of the highlights was surely Fox's screening of a great big glimpse of the upcoming - and eagerly awaited - Deadpool solo movie. Sadly, however, that footage hasn't yet made it online in official, non-blurry-to-the-point-of-being-un-watchable form. From the sounds of Ryan Reynolds's latest tweet, however:
We're Going to Get to See the Trailer Real Soon
Or, at least, in about three weeks' time. Which means there's a pretty solid chance we're going to see a Green-Band trailer run alongside Fantastic Four when it's released in...about three weeks' time.
In the meantime, though, for anyone who just can't wait:
This Is What Was Shown at Comic-Con...
We Found Out Just How Terminally Ill Deadpool Was
Or at least, we heard his response to girlfriend Vanessa 'Copycat' Carlysle's assertion that he'd be able to overcome his disease:
"You’re right. The cancer’s only in my liver, lungs, prostate, and brain. All things I can live without."
We Saw Deadpool Head to the Weapon X Program
With the Merc with a Mouth adding a hilarious dig at (Reynolds' former role as) Green Lantern along the way, begging his handlers not to make his suit:
We Saw...Well, This, Basically
Or, at least, several elements obviously taken wholesale from it - confirming what we already pretty much knew: that 'leaked' test footage really has been re-shot and added into the movie.
Only this time, it's not alone:
We Also Got Our First Good Look at Colossus
Who, as well as laying a considerable amount of smackdown on 'Pool, ends up on the receiving end of one of the trailer's more...indelicate insults, being called a:
"big chrome c**k-gobbler."
Negasonic Teenage Warhead Gets a Whole Lot of Love
Deadpool's response to the X-Teen's codename upon meeting her?
"What the s**t?! That’s the coolest name ever!"
Deadpool Straight Up Breaks the Fourth Wall
Looking straight at the camera, and kicking an elaborate montage off with:
"Cue the music."
Which is...reassuring, since without constantly breaking the fourth wall, Deadpool...just isn't Deadpool.
Wade and Weasel Get Competitive
Or, at least, Weasel gets elaborately mean, with lines describing Deadpool's new, heavily-scarred face including:
"You look like an avocado that had sex with an older avocado."
and, way more explicitly:
"You look like Freddy Krueger face-fucked a topographical map of Utah."
And, of course:
Deadpool Gets the Last Laugh
Sniffing his guns after killing a whole bunch of people and revealing to the camera:
"I’m touching myself tonight."
Now...could those three weeks hurry up and finish up already? Or, y'know, 2016 could just stop dilly-dallying and arrive a little early...
