20th Century Fox is scheduled to have a panel in Hall H this Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, but so far they’ve yet to reveal which properties they’ll be promoting. But, it’s obvious that will be bringing the thunder with Deadpool, their upcoming film which sees Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the Merc With A Mouth from FOX’s X-Men film universe.
Reynolds has stated previously that he’d be at SDCC this year, but looks like Deadpool needs a lift to the Con. The actor posted a photo today to this Twitter account of a sombrero- and poncho-wearing Deadpool thumbing for a ride, while holding a sign that reads “Comic-Con Por Favor.” Accompanying the photo is the caption: “Hey #SDCC, Thank you for being a friend…”
Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, along with Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Andre Tricoteux. After Reynolds posted his hitchhiking Deadpool photo with the reference to The Golden Girls theme song, his co-stars jumped in on the action, posting their faces superimposed onto the photo and continuing the lyrics of the song.
Deadpool is scheduled to hit theaters in North America on Deadpool on February 12, 2016.
After former Special Forces operative Wade Wilson is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, he adopts the alter ego Deadpool to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life, all with a dark, twisted sense of humor.
Preview Night begins this evening for Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA, which will launch the 4 1/2-day pop culture mega-event. We have our troops on the ground there now, so look forward to our extensive SDCC coverage over the next few days right here at Geeks Of Doom!
