Following the standing ovation it received last month at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, the first official trailer for Deadpool has officially been released.
The trailer for one of 2016’s most-anticipated superhero films made its debut on Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show last night (Aug. 4). Keeping with the theme of the film being Rated-R, O’Brien’s show was rated TV-MA due to the nature of the trailer.
Taking to Twitter, the comedian joked about the rating, thanking star Ryan Reynolds for it. “Showing @VancityReynolds’ #Deadpool trailer earned my show a TV-MA rating tonight. Thanks a fucking lot, Ryan.”
The trailer begins with Reynolds’ Wade Wilson making a difficult decision to take on superpowers in order to cure the cancer in his liver, lungs, prostate, and brain. From there on, it’s a combination of action-packed sequences features some bullets to the bad guys’ heads and a lot of sarcastic lines.
Our favorite part? When Wilson is being wheeled in to get the treatment, he starts by being all serious and then shift to taking a dig at another superhero’s costume.
“Just don’t make my suit green – or animated!”
The official red band trailer can be seen below though it’s supposedly NSFW. We beg to differ, but that’s just us.
Deadpool is set to be released on Feb. 12, 2016.
