Following last week’s expletive-filled new trailer, more Deadpool images have made their way online. For those who don’t know, the film stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, a cancer-stricken soldier who agrees to undergo an experimental treatment that will save his life; however, when it leaves him horribly scarred and without his beloved wife, he breaks out his guns, swords, and sense of humor to get revenge on the bad guys behind the procedure.
Now Empire has released more images from the film, and while there’s nothing too mind-blowing, it does give us a first look at Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) in a New Mutants costume. The latest red-band trailer mentioned “X-Men bullshit,” and I’m wondering how much of the PG-13 franchise will get name-dropped into the very R-rated Deadpool. Additionally, Fox is trying to set up a New Mutants movie from The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone, but when we spoke to producer Simon Kinberg last month, he said they were still working on the first draft. Could Negasonic Teenage Warhead be the bridge between Deadpool and New Mutants or will they work to keep the franchises separate and make sure Deadpool’s R-rated antics don’t touch anything that could reach a more lucrative PG-13 market?
Check out the new Deadpool images below. The film also stars Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle/Copycat, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, T.J. Miller as Weasel, and Gina Carano as Angel Dust. Deadpool opens February 12th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Deadpool:
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional 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, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
