Second 'Deadpool' trailer displays all kinds of red-band mayhem

In 2016, we will be completely inundated with superhero films. Batman and Superman are set to square off along with Wonder Woman in Dawn of Justice, Captain America and Iron Man will duel in Civil War, the X-Men are set to fight their greatest test yet in Apocalypse, the villains of the DC universe will arrive on the scene in Suicide Squad, and Marvel's sorcerer supreme will make his Hollywood debut in Doctor Strange. But for some longtime comic book fans, the 2016 superhero movie that tops their most anticipated list is none other than Fox's Deadpool. After the studio and director Gavin Hood royally screwed up the character in 2009's X-Men: Origins- Wolverine, Ryan Reynolds is back as the "Merc with a Mouth" and he's hoping to give us the version of Deadpool that fans know and love. The first trailer was a smash hit at San Diego Comic-Con back in July, and now, there's a second red-band trailer that puts the film's bloody mayhem on full blast. Check it out below:


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.
