20th Century Fox has released two trailers for their upcoming Marvel project, Deadpool. The Red Band trailer debuted online after making its world premiere on “Conan”, while the Green Band version was released online by the studio.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, the R-rated 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.
Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Andre Tricoteux as Colossus, and Ed Skrein as Ajax. Reynolds originally appeared as the character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine; however, it is speculated that the character will be revamped for the stand alone film.
