There's one question that you have to ask yourself after watching that trailer.
Can I imagine watching two hours of that?
For me, as of right now, the answer is no. Deadpool is a fun character, but in doses. A two-and-a-half minute trailer does Deadpool justice because it gives you just the right amount of quips and a perfect amount of gratuitous violence. But over the course of a full length movie, I'm still concerned that this movie might not deliver the goods, or worse, get annoying very quickly. Tim Miller is a first-time director and that could end up being problematic as well. So with all that said, it's safe to say that I'm wary about Deadpool. And yet, this is another fantastic teaser, delivering everything that fans would want. Heads roll, f-bombs are dropped, sex jokes are made- it's all in the traditional Deadpool fashion. And if the filmmakers can strike a good mix between the story and the vulgarity, then we're in for a treat. But if that doesn't happen, we might be in for a long watch.
Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Stan Lee, Rachel Sheen and Taylor Hickson and will hit theaters on February 12.
