Watch: ‘Deadpool’ Trailer Tease And IMAX Poster Continues To Test The Limits Of Character’s Obnoxiousness

OK, we get it, “Deadpool is supposed to be hilariously irreverent, flippant and quippy, but someone ought to tell Ryan Reynolds and the marketing department behind this comic book movie to relax a little bit. Speaking of those geniuses, they’ve decided to release the new “Deadpool” trailer on Christmas Day — you know that holiday when you’re really not around a computer and you’re with family instead? Meanwhile, as marketing teams are wont to do they’ve released a Chimichanga-centered teaser (saying “Chimichanga” is funny!) for this upcoming trailer and an IMAX poster that features Deadpool riding a piggyback on the shoulders of Colossus because that’s apparently both silly and cheeky too. Here’s the synopsis for the movie:

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.

Beyond Reynolds as the exhausting “Deadpool” lead, the movie co-stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand. “Deadpool,” which hopefully isn’t as obnoxious as its Beavis & Butthead-y, aimed-at-15-year-old-boys marketing, opens February 12, 2016.
