Ryan Reynolds is giving the superhero thing another go in the upcoming Marvel flick, Deadpool. Playing the eponymous anti-hero, Reynolds brings his comedic chops to one of Marvel’s more atypical characters.
From the film’s YouTube page:
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.
Reynolds’ character even manages to get in a jab at his Green Lantern persona in the new trailer, quipping, “And please don’t make the supersuit green. Or animated.”
This time around, Reynolds wears a red suit–so bad guys can’t see him bleed.
