The promotion for Deadpool by Ryan Reynolds is starting to resemble a certain South Park episode from 2004.
Reynolds has been making fun of his previous adventures in superhero films, because that is what Deadpool would do. He makes a Green Lantern comment in the trailer and last week Reynolds made a special video to throw poop at X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Somehow no mention of Blade: Trinity yet.
“You gave us Wolverine. And for that, I can’t forgive you. I’ve got no problems with Hugh. I mean, he’s a delightful guy. A true legend. But that movie, that was a career-low for me,” said Deadpool.
Hugh Jackman knows how to have fun and the actor, while at Sundance promoting Eddie The Eagle commented on the Deadpool Austrailian Day video.
“Love it. It’s just brilliant. I mean, I love Ryan, he’s a good mate of mine. He’s so fantastic,” said Jackman.
When asked if Wolverine could beat Deadpool, Jackman replied “A hundred percent.”
After looking at the scorecard, I do believe IT IS ON! Fans will find out on February 12 if Jackman makes a cameo in the film as Wolverine.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most original anti-hero, 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, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand.
