Ryan Reynolds, ever the one to trumpet the soon-to-be-released Deadpool on his various social channels, has shared yet another image from Tim Miller’s R-Rated superhero flick, this time showcasing the Merc With a Mouth unmasked.
As opposed to the film’s maiden clip that debuted earlier in the week – one which had Reynolds’ Wade Wilson pop the question to an unsuspecting Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa Carlysle – today’s new tease appears to be lifted from much later in the movie, when Deadpool is hunting down the man who left his life in tatters guns blazing.

Whether it’s through 20th Century Fox officially or Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter feed, the marketing campaign guiding Deadpool to its anticipated release has been really rather remarkable, even if we do fear that we’re beginning to see too much, too soon. From plastering a billboard with emojis to the festive-themed 12 Days of Deadpool from late last year, all signs point to Tim Miller and the creative team behind next month’s atypical superhero origins tale delivering on that early promise.
Bringing together T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle/Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax, Deadpool will lay siege to theaters across the country on February 12. Better get to rearranging those Valentine’s Day plans.
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.
