The Marvel Cinematic Universe delivered a present to its loyal fans Christmas Day with Deadpool’s second trailer.
Akin to the first trailer, we’re shown a brief origin story before being pulled back to the present state of affairs – but with a few extra goodies (including more Morena Baccarin). We catch a closer look at the Weapon X program and an easter egg glimpse of future X-Man Spike before seeing Deadpool emerge from rubble (presumably the destroyed facility).
Cut to the nitty-gritty destruction, a few snarky comments from Mr. Red Spandex himself, some fourth-wall breaking, a smattering of violence and a little bit of cursing (in the featured Red Band trailer).
While there is a little bit of chit-chit between Deadpool and Colossus, Angel Dust lets loose and we finally get to see what she and Negasonic Teenage Warhead can do followed by another quip from the merc with the mouth (to tie the proverbial room together).
Unlike the second Batman v. Superman trailer, Deadpool’s latest trailer doesn’t give anything major away and instead continues on the light-hearted path of the first one. Through quick wit and kitchy banter, Ryan Reynolds continues to prove why he was born to play the most obnoxious character in the Marvel Universe.
Deadpool slices and dices into theaters February 12.
