Deadpool‘s Ryan Reynolds has surprised some avid fans with a special screening of the coming Deadpool film and apparently its just tops. How great is it? if the Twitter reactions weren’t enough, just look what Deadpool comics co-creator Rob Liefeld had to say about the feature:
This is my second time seeing it and it was even better than the first time. That sounds like something Deadpool would say. But, here’s the deal; twenty-five years worth of Deadpool. This movie comes out twenty-five years to the day we published him at Marvel and you couldn’t get a better gift if you’re a Deadpool fan and I have seen twenty-five years of stories come and go and Rhett (Reese) and Paul (Wernick) will tell you – back in 2009 I freaked out when I read the screenplay because Deadpool has never ever been better than he was in that screenplay and when I saw this movie six weeks ago I was like, ‘How much of this script will carry?’ and what you just saw is the best version of Deadpool I have ever experienced in my life.
If that is not a resounding show of support, we don’t know what is. And that’s great. Makes us wonder if the same would be said if Deadpool and X-Men films were under the control of Marvel and Disney if we would get the same results.
Check out the Red Band Deadpool trailer in the player 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.
Deadpool is scheduled for a theatrical release on February 12th2016
