Comic-Con: Ryan Reynolds' 'Deadpool' Panel Opens With Obscenity-Filled Clip
Before Ryan Reynolds hit the hall for Fox's Saturday Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, he played an obscenity-filled video greeting from Deadpool.
In the clip, he slammed Fox for sewing the character's mouth shut in the first movie he appeared in (2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine). Wolverine wasn't the only movie he threw shade at. Reynolds took on his 2011 feature Green Lantern, saying he's only done one "proper superhero movie," then correcting himself: "I'm sorry, not proper."
He continued to play to the Comic-Con crowd by touting the film's R-rating. "It's an absolute miracle that a studio let us make Deadpool, let alone a rated-R Deadpool," he said to huge applause.
Reynolds then debuted the first trailer for the film, working the crowd into a frenzy.
The trailer included a Stan Lee cameo (in a strip club) and also a surprise appearance from X-Men Colossus, who has a fight with Deadpool. The footage was action-packed, funny and bloody.
Before getting his powers, Wade Wilson begs his creators not to make the superhero suit green and animated (another dig at Green Lantern). At another moment, Deadpool's friend Weasel (T.J. Miller) discusses how hideous he looks after the procedure that gave him his powers. He looks truly hideous — and Miller has a creative way to describe it (it involves the male anatomy).
At another point, Deadpool does a flip out of a van and with one bullet shoots three men through the head — all gloriously captured in slow motion. At another point, Deadpool looks at a gruesome bullet wound — which has left a gaping hole in his own hand — and makes a foul mouthed comment.
After the footage played, the crowd rose to its feet and started chanting "one more time," and the Hall H powers that be obliged.
Deadpool, which stars Reynolds as the smart-mouthed mercenary, is set for release on Feb. 12, 2016.
