The Merc is Out There… Deadpool Parodies The X-Files in New Images

The Merc with a Mouth pokes fun at The X-Files

Tonight saw the return of fan-favorite series The X-Files to television, and the Merc with a Mouth poked some fun at the cult TV show in some new images. Check them out below along with two more Deadpool TV spots!

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 T.J. 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, voiced by Serbian actor Stefan Kapicic.

Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool will slice his way into theaters on February 12.
