Prepare yourselves… for some very good news.
With little less than a month to go until the film’s theatrical release, the hype behind Twentieth Century Fox’s Deadpool is at an all-time high. Now, after some of the best movie marketing I’ve ever seen, including a Valentine’s Day-themed twist and an emoji-filled billboard, it looks like Deadpool is finally ready for the world. Or the world is ready for him. One of the two.
And we finally have our first reactions.
After theatres of fans piled into movie auditoriums in both New York City and Los Angeles last night to see what they thought was going to be a special sneak preview of the film, they were instead treated to a surprise screening of the film in its entirety for the first time. For those of you who have been holding back your excitement too, it looks like you might finally be able to get at least, a little excited, as the general consensus following the screenings is that Deadpool has most definitely lived up to its expectations, with some going so far as to call it the best Marvel film adaptation yet.
Check out some of the reactions below:
Just saw early screening of Deadpool. The movie is fucking amazing. Everything I was hoping for from the Merc with a Mouth! #deadpool

Well, hell, you guys. They went and made an amazingly awesome, fun, exciting #Deadpool movie. It’s outstanding.

This comes as a welcome reception not only because we like it when a highly-anticipated movie is apparently good, but also considering some of the fire the film has come under in the past few weeks from critics and fans saying there should be a PG-13 version of the movie made. Which I could not disagree more with, but that’s an argument for another time.
While the fan reception is great to hear too, I’m more looking forward to finding out how well it does at the box office as a high-profile, hard R-rated comic book movie, and if it manages to find the same kind of success that it’s friendlier competition does. Especially since the financial reception will decide whether or not we get a Deadpool sequel, and if this new world of the superhero movie will be allowed to flourish, or if it will be stopped before it can even really get going. I’m gonna keep my fingers crossed for the former.
Deadpool is set to hit theatres on February 12th.
