Deadpool fans attending Comic-Con in San Diego last month were the first to see the trailer for the upcoming film of the same name, but the rest of us will be able to see it on Tuesday.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the Deadpool trailer will be screened during a Tuesday night appearance by star Ryan Reynolds on Conan O’Brien’s TBS talk show.
The staff at Conan seems to be excited about seeing the Deadpool trailer, as shown in a post on the show’s website.
“Ryan Reynolds debuts the new redband trailer for Deadpool,” reads the message. “We’re filling up his dressing room with chimichangas in anticipation.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this will be the official debut of the redband trailer for Deadpool, although bootleg copies from Comic-Con have popped up online since the event was held in July. Despite the leaks, 20th Century Fox did not rush to release the trailer to the public.
Reynolds, who has appeared as the character Deadpool in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is already appearing online in a teaser trailer for new movie featuring the smart-mouthed assassin from Marvel comics. The Deadpool teaser was released Monday by Fox.
The teaser trailer, USA Today reports, is shot in a sort of dark humor that is typical of Deadpool brand. In the clip, Reynolds is dressed in costume as Deadpool delivering a monologue inspired by the legendary “in a world” voice-over master Don LaFontaine.
The video clip shows Deadpool in a Masterpiece Theatre style library in a huge leather chair. At one point, he even tries to smoke a pipe (something he fails to do as he is wearing the Deadpool mask which doesn’t have a mouth).
As absurd as a trailer for a trailer might seem, USA Today notes that in this case, it works. Deadpool is, after all, known as “Merc with a Mouth,” and his first appearance in the Marvel universe did portray him as a smart aleck.
It should be noted that Deadpool is going to be rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America, and due to the language, the trailer should be considered NSFW. You can check out the Deadpool teaser for yourself below.
In addition to Reynolds, Deadpool will feature the acting talent of Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, and T.J. Miller. Tim Miller directed the film. Deadpool will be released in U.S. theaters on February 12, 2016.
