5 Reasons The ‘Deadpool’ Trailer Made Us All Giddy


What’s better than roses and chocolate on Valentine’s Day? Ryan Reynolds in a skin-tight costume, that’s what! No, we’re not going to discuss the disappointment known as “Green Lantern” –because really who wants that– we’re going to dig into the love all comic-book nerds (and Marvel movie junkies) have for “Deadpool.”

If you’re wondering what the big deal is about their NSFW red-band trailer, here it is:

1. It continues the string of lesser-known superheroes.
After Marvel released movies for the other superheroes in their universe (Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man), we just can’t get enough of these quirky, lesser-known heroes.

2. Who doesn’t love scripts dripping in sarcasm and sexual innuendo?
With lines like, “You look like Freddy Krueger face-fucked a topographical map of Utah,” in the trailer, the movie must hold more gems that we will be quoting for the next few years.

3. It’s the piece of X-Men we’ve all been waiting for.
Let’s be honest, we were all disappointed in Marvel for the awful job they did with Deadpool’s character (why was his mouth sewn shut?) in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This is Marvel admitting their mistakes and making a strong comeback.

4. This isn’t your mother’s Disney movie.
Disney famously acquired Marvel in 2009, and they haven’t been shy of making that famous ‘D’ (the inappropriateness of the Deadpool trailer has gotten to us) appear in all the opening and closing credits of Marvel films. But alas! The day has come for Disney to step back and allow Marvel to give us a highly-inappropriate R-rated movie.

5. Because, Ryan Reynolds.
Yes, he’s Canadian (*shudders*) but he’s not all that bad. Besides divorcing ScarJo, the major mistake he made was getting together with DC Comics. While he failed as a man rocking a fluorescent green ring, we’re confident that he can live up to the raunchiness that Deadpool is known for. Also, who else can be as charmingly sarcastic as Reynolds?

Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it! (NSFW)
