Deadpool Hype Sizzles This Feb

With only a few more days before we see the Merc-with-a-Mouth on the big screen (Feb 10 in Philippines), Deadpool has been firing the hype train in loco mode (get it? Loco…cause trains, ah, never mind). With a knack of breaking the 4th wall, Deadpool and its marketing team has been having the time of their lives creating off-the-cuff materials for this movie.

Everything from celebrating Australia Day:

To its Valentine’s Day gimmick:


The crazy marketing initiative even spawned a whole spew of grade-A fan made material like this fanciful trailer:

And….with a clear reference to Ryan Reynold’s other superhero movie (the one that bomb and fans hated him for it), this amazing fan-made poster just hits the nail HARD!

Amazing AF!

Amazing A F!

The hilarity of Deadpool just wouldn’t stop and this pretty much excites us more than the actual story. I mean look at these official posters! 😀

Mind you, Deadpool is no cutesy superhero movie. It' class=

Mind you, Deadpool is no cutesy superhero movie. It’s a hard R-16 film with sex, gore, violence and loads of expletives! Contrast that with the zany marketing you find above and we have here a winning combo!

DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), 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.
