If there are fans of the comic book character Deadpool still concerned that the upcoming Hollywood movie version of their ribald, red-masked superhero will be sanitized for general audiences Ã¢ÂÂ well, get a load of this.
The new poster for Deadpool speaks for itself. Or, rather, you could say, speaks softly and carries a big stick. Ryan Reynolds stars in the upcoming film as the mercenary Wade Wilson, who undergoes a treatment to cure cancer and is transformed into the superhuman, wisecracking, fourth-wall-smashing Deadpool. And as witnessed in the red-band trailer, which generated rapturous, thunderous buzz when it premiered at this yearÃ¢ÂÂs San Diego Comic-Con, and the internattional poster that debuted earlier this month, heÃ¢ÂÂs quite a bit more boastful of his own libido than anyone weÃ¢ÂÂve seen from the Marvel universe onscreen before.
