20th Century Fox has debuted a brand new international one-sheet for their big-screen take on Marvel’s Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool. The R-rated adaptation has already received some crazy promotion via several holiday-themed images of the titular antihero, and a few viral videos courtesy of star Ryan Reynolds – but this one is arguably the funniest yet, and proves that Fox has a pretty good grasp of what makes the character so popular.
As you can see, ol’ Wade Wilson is posing rather provocatively, while the caption reads: “Bad ass. Smart ass. Great ass.” Whether you concur with the latter is down to personal preference, of course.
Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and also stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand. The movie is set to be released on February 12, 2016.
Expect more promotion to follow pretty soon, as a new trailer is rumored to be on the way, but in the meantime, check out the new poster and synopsis below.
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.
