What more could Deadpool fans want for Christmas than a brand new trailer for the upcoming Marvel film? Well, they’ll get that for sure, but before the big holiday arrives, they’re going to get a lot more Deadpool-related things to whet their appetite.
20th Century Fox unveiled a new video that shows Deadpool sitting in front of the camera, with what appears to be egg nog in his hand, explaining a new event that is taking place over the course of the 12 days before the new Deadpool trailer arrives on Christmas Day. The event is called the 12 Days of Deadpool. Each day, there will be something new released in relation to the upcoming Deadpool movie, and each one will be released by a different outlet. For example, the first day of Deadpool saw a brand new poster that was first released by Entertainment Weekly, which is featured below.
For the second day of Deadpool, People is going to release something new, but it’s not certain if it will be another poster, some exclusive footage, or something else. Other outlets participating in the 12 Days of Deadpool include Empire, Fandango, and Mashable. For a full list, check out the video in full below.
And it looks like Deadpool might have more than one trailer in store for its fans. According to the Alberta Film Ratings website, there is one Deadpool trailer that has been given a PG rating, and another that received a 14A rating. Both have the same runtime, so it appears that fans will get both a red-band and a green-band trailer for Deadpool on Christmas Day. There is also a 27-second teaser for Deadpool that was given a PG rating. Comic Book Movie confirmed that the short teaser will air before the IMAX presentation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The first official Deadpool trailer was shown at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year, and it received a standing ovation from the audience members and was also given an encore showing, as the Inquisitr previously reported. During the panel at Comic Con, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds said that this adaptation is one that fans will truly appreciate.
“(Deadpool) is everything we loved about the comics. It’s the most faithful adaptation of a super suit to a comic movie ever, (doing) the best he can to annoy everyone around him 24/7.”
There had been some concern that Deadpool would get a PG-13 rating like other Marvel movies such as the Spider-Man and X-Men films. Fans know that Deadpool is not like those previously mentioned franchises, and it’s actually geared more toward adults. But producer Simon Kerg assured that fans will get the Deadpool they deserve.
“Deadpool is hard R. It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.”
Reynolds, himself, has been getting fans pumped for the release of Deadpool by unveiling some hysterical images in relation to the popular comic book character. When the first image of the Deadpool costume was released, Reynolds mocked an old Burt Reynolds photo in which the actor posed while laying on a bear rug.
