Sorry for the delay my fiends but if you will forgive me I will get to sharing the first official trailer for the 2016 film “Deadpool” – I got sidelined by some tour happenings that needed to be posted first but here we go…..Oh yeah and this doesn’t say “NSFW” for no good reason, so headphones if you must watch it around your office colleagues.
The Premise: Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m always on the fence when it comes to Ryan Reynolds in a role and lets face it, almost ALL of us hated what he did in “Green Lantern”. That said I have to admit that this looks like a fantastic and fun ride. I’m willing to guess that it is going to more than make up for the disappointment that most are going to find with the other 20th Century Fox Marvel Comics property “Fantastic Four” that opens up in a couple of days. What I loved about the stuff we see here in the trailer is that it seems to capture Deadpool’s obnoxious essence pretty well. The action and violence seem on point and you parents might want to shield your kids ears from some of the colorful language. So that is all I have for this trailer, what do you readers think? Will you see this one? Let me know in the comments section below.
The Official Facebook Page for the “Deadpool Movie” posted the first official look at actor Ryan Reynolds in the costume and I just had to share it with you readers as soon as I had a moment to do so. Check it out.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay so this looks rather fantastic to me but I still cannot shake that performance as “Green Lantern” from a few years from my mind that Reynolds did. Maybe it was just a terrible film and not as much his fault. One has to hope that Reynolds will be able to not only handle this Wade Wilson, Merc With A Mouth character a lot better than Hal Jordan but also that the film itself is stronger in terms of plot, action and other characters that are involved. This will continue along in the live action “X-Men” universe that Fox has been delivering for the last few years. Remember this is NOT under Marvel Studios direction at all. I’ll remain hopeful and can honestly say that I am looking forward to this one a lot more than the also coming soon “Fantastic Four” reboot. The photo is a sort of an homage and parody of a Cosmopolitan Magazine photo of actor Burt Reynolds who posed nude on a bearskin rug more than four decades ago (yes that really happened). What do you readers think about this? Let’s discuss in the comments section below as all topical views shall be approved. Are you a fan of the character at all?
Keep apprised of the films developments via its Wiki entry which is linked below.
The Press Release:
It’s been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. Sun Tzu’s seminal Art of War has influenced warfare for hundreds of years. From the battlefield to business and beyond, there has never been a work of more import when it comes to strategy and preparation. Until now! Today, Marvel is proud to announce DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 – the first chapter in a new 4-issue mini-series from New York Times Bestselling writer Peter David (All-New X-Factor, The Incredible Hulk) and fan-favorite artist Scott Koblish (Deadpool)!
In the last quarter of 2011, DC Comics gave us a bold initiative with “The New 52” relaunch of all their titles. Now it’s Marvel Comics turn to offer up an event of massive proportions with Marvel “NOW!” According to what I have read, this will aim to get new readers into these characters stories but it did not appear to be the same kind of dramatic relaunch as we found DC Comics doing and literally starting us all over on their histories. “NOW!” strikes me as new titles beginning with first issues but continuing along with what longer tenured readers already know.
They’ve been talking about a solo tale of Wolverine’s past for awhile now and here it is, the origin story that takes place before the first “X-Men” film. It stars Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine and its clear to me that he loves this role. That is fine with me.
According to the film’s Wiki entry “The plot details Wolverine’s childhood as James Howlett, his early encounters with Major William Stryker, his time with Team X, and the bonding of Wolverine’s skeleton with the indestructible metal adamantium during the Weapon X program”. That’s a whole lot of ground to cover so I am going to remain hopeful that it keeps fans interested and doesn’t breeze over points that need a little more explanation. Will you see this film? I know I will and check out the other characters that make an appearance in the movie. Continue reading Opening Today: “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (5/1/2009)→
