Watch Deadpool's First Full-Length Trailer

Ryan Reynolds slices his way through the red band trailer for the upcoming Deadpool movie


The first full-length trailer for Fox's Deadpool movie has arrived, and it proves to be the violent, foul-mouthed adaptation that fans of the Marvel comic book have been anticipating.

Ryan Reynolds stars as mercenary Wade Wilson, who is given superhuman healing powers after undergoing experimental treatment for a terminal illness. Adopting the name Deadpool and a distinctive red suit, the disfigured, fast-talking anti-hero seeks violent revenge on the men responsible for his condition.

Deadpool sits within Fox's X-Men universe, with Reynolds reprising the role that he played briefly in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The comic book is noted for its blackly comic, violent approach to this unconventional superhero story, and this trailer had already proved a big hit with fans when it screened at Comic-Con in July.

The film is the directorial debut of visual effects artist Tim Miller, and also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein and T. J. Miller. Deadpool arrives in theaters in 2016.
