Deadpool trailer is coming soon
While we would all like to see an official release of the footage that was shown in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday (get a recap here), and not some bootlegged version, it’s not going to happen due to unfinished visual effects and presumably the music rights, etc. However, there is some good news after all.
Ryan Reynolds says that the Deadpool trailer is coming in three weeks. Okay, he doesn’t specifically say trailer, but one can connect the dots and see that 20th Century Fox’s own Fantastic Four hits theaters on August 7 and that would make for a great film for the studio to attach its first official Deadpool footage to. Here’s Reynolds’ tweet:

The question remains if we’re going to get just a Green Band theatrical version of the trailer or also a Red Band one as studios sometimes like to release for R-rated films.
While we wait, you can check out our Comic-Con interviews with Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano and Ed Skrein.
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.
Ryan Reynolds stars as the title character alongside TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character. Reynolds has also expressed a desire that Hugh Jackman might cameo as Wolverine, though it remains unconfirmed as to whether or not he will actually appear.
Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Confirmed to be rated R, Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
