It looks like “Deadpool” is hitting its peak promotion period, seeing as 20th Century Fox has released two new TV spots for the film on top of the “Happy Australia Day” video from Thursday, Jan. 21. The new spots feature some exciting new footage as well as a few characters you might recognize from the trailer.
In the first video, “Time to be a Hero,” Deadpool sheds some more light on the premise of the film. After being turned into a super soldier, the evil Ajax (Ed Skrein) kidnaps Deadpool’s girlfriend, prompting him to put on the super suit and save the day.
Die-hard Marvel fans might also be quick enough to catch the flash of “X-Men” teases in the first spot. During a quick cut, Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) appear to walk through some fancy X-emblazoned doors into a jet hanger. Another shot shows said jet soaring through the trees. “X-Men” fans should keep a sharp eye peeled for more hints of a crossover in the new film.
The second spot gives a peek at some supporting characters like Weasel (T.J. Miller) and Blind Al (Leslie Uggams). Weasel decides to sit out Deadpool’s rescue mission saying, “I’d go with you, but … I don’t wanna.” Plus, we also get a much better look at Ryan Reynolds without the Deadpool suit on, which is … not pretty, to put it mildly.
“Deadpool” premieres in theaters Friday, Feb. 12.
