Apparently, Deadpool always wanted to be an athlete, but not for the reasons you’d expect, as we learn in the newly released Super Bowl spot for Deadpool, FOX’s upcoming Marvel movie starring Ryan Reynolds as the title Merc With A Mouth.
Usually we don’t share every single piece of promotional material for an upcoming movie, because in most cases a lot of the short TV spots and clips that are released show the same or similar content to what we’ve seen in the past. Deadpool is not most cases. While we have seen a lot of the same footage from the actual movie shown in previous related goodies we’ve seen, the marketing campaign has also been jam-packed with plenty of creative and hilarious promos.
In the latest clip Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) pops the big question to his lady friend Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), though it probably doesn’t go quite like they had imagined it in their heads. You can watch the new clip below.
The marketing team for Deadpool has been doing some pretty fantastic work (find more of it along with early screening reactions and more right here), and part of that has been releasing holiday related goodies. We’ve seen star Ryan Reynoldscelebrating Halloween with some kids, and then there was the 12 Days of Deadpool for Christmas. The movie is set to release near Valentine’s Day too, so they’ve used that to their advantage as well.
Now Deadpool is here again to wish Australians everywhere a happy Australia Day, which is celebrated in a few days on January the 26th, while maybe taking a shot at the fact that they gave us Wolverine in the process. You can watch the short video below.
If you couldn’t shake the fear that—despite everything that we’ve seen and heard regarding Deadpool being as faithfully gory and graphic as fans of the comic book have always demanded the movie be—20th Century Fox might try to pull a fast one and ultimately reveal it to actually be rated PG-13 shortly before release, worry not my friends.
Though your fears were understandable (why, if we’ve all known for a long time now that star Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller had been given permission to make an R-rated flick and we’ve seen with our own eyeballs the ultra violent red band trailers, would promos released as early as this week still say “This Film Is Not Yet Rated”?), Deadpool has been officially awarded that badge of honor R-rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. Continue reading to find out what exactly the movie has been given that R rating for.
A trio of new Deadpool TV spots have been released, with a tip of the hat to football, which is pretty popular right now with the NFL playoffs in full swing, and Pretty Little Liars included.
In addition to the two new TV spots, some Valentine’s Day friendly ads have also been released. As you already know the movie is set to be released just before the holiday for lovers on February 12th, and so it only makes sense to have a couple of the promo materials for the movie be more fitting to the holiday…and perhaps help a gentleman or two to convince their significant other to go and see this new Ryan Reynolds romantic comedy for their V-Day date night.
