Ryan Reynolds is officially having more fun promoting Deadpool than he should really be allowed. This month we’ve been thoroughly enjoying the 12 Days of Deadpool. The bad news is that the 12 days of silliness are nearly over as we have now reached Day 11. We know that tomorrow we get a new trailer for the film, as a Christmas present from a different guy in a red suit. Today, however, somebody with a minor Deadpool connection got in on the action and gave us a great image, and a brief teaser for that new trailer.
Since Deadpool is technically part of the X-Men franchise, his first appearance on screen was the abomination that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it’s fitting to see Hugh Jackman get in on the fun. We can’t decide if the best part is seeing Wolverine give Deadpool the finger, or if it’s the image of Deadpool, who looks like he’s about to start pole dancing on the extended claw.
Of course, this now has the folks on Twitter wondering if this image is more than good fun. IS there the possibility of a Wolverine cameo in Deadpool? It’s not the first time we’ve seen a hint of Jackman’s involvement in the project, though the evidence is flimsy. If a role for Wolverine is happening, it’s been kept well under wraps. In the comics, as in the Origins film, both Wade Wilson and Logan undergo similar processes to become nearly indestructible super soldiers. In Wilson’s case, the process doesn’t go quite as well as it did for Wolverine.
The trailer teaser is brief, and for the most part contains scenes that we’ve already seen before. Though it’s still worth watching as the Night Before Christmas narration is a joy to hear, and it ends with a punchline worth seeing. Check it out below.
We’re excited for tomorrow when the guy in the red suit brings us a very special gift for Christmas. We couldn’t care less about that Santa Claus guy. We want Deadpool to bring us a new gloriously insane trailer for the movie. Then we’ll look forward to another holiday, Valentine’s Day, because that’s when the movie will finally be here.
