Yesterday, the official Facebook page posted the following appropriate picture:
It was accompanied by the caption: “Deadpool always delivers. Even on Mother’s Day.”
This kind of humor, directly addressed to the audience, is exactly what has made Deadpool the popular character he is today. Based on everything we’ve seen from the marketing team so far, they’ve really nailed this aspect of the character.
As if that wasn’t enough, today actor Ryan Reynolds, who will be playing the Merc with a Mouth in the film, posted his very first Instagram photo:
Not only does the film seem to get his humor already, but it looks like we’ll be seeing awesome action as well. However much of a funny man Deadpool is, it’s important to remember that he didn’t become one of the greatest mercenaries in the world for that reason. He’s highly trained and a very fearsome fighter.
We can’t express our excitement for this film enough and we look forward to the next piece of marketing for it!
Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller, will star Ryan Reynolds, Ed Skrein, TJ Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, and Morena Baccarin. It’s set to hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
