Even though a few theaters have run the new Deadpool trailer ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, online may be the best (and only) place you’ll get to see the trailer today.

NSFW Warning in Effect!

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.

Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand

So a bit of an origin story, a mix of X-Men, and a whole lotta dirty, filthy, chimichanga fun!? I’m in, and will be in line when Deadpool opens on February 12th. With a February release (typically the dumping ground for really bad movies) and the large fan base, I expect Deadpool to make 20th Century Fox and Marvel (and Rob Liefeld) a crap ton of money through mid-April.

“Will it beat the Star Wars?”

Silly, Spoilerite, nothing will ever beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens unless it is another Star Wars movie as long as Disney controls the world. I do expect Deadpool to make $300 – $500 million before it is over though.
