I couldn’t make-up the headline above if I tried; or even pluck out of thin air, no matter how much I try to be one step ahead of the marketing campaign for the February 12th release of Deadpool. And I can’t stop laughing with this one.
Before I say anything more… men? Do yourself a favor and watch this PSA very closely. And for the ladies out there? Well, you should probably watch this as well just in case your man needs some help (this is, in no way, an official endorsement).
I just don’t know how I should take this “PSA” and apply it to the movie Deadpool. On one hand, it’s a very important message and Wade Wilson is just looking out for his fans, and, men in general. So, I’ll use the official synopsis:
Gifted with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor, mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) adopts the alter ego Deadpool and hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
….Still got nothing.
What I will connect, the target audience – me – is continuing to Marvel (pun!) at the fun 20th Century Fox is having with their property. As I’ve said many times before, Fox and the filmmakers behind the movie look to be having the time of their lives. Each PSA, each random, out of left field pun or reference just holds the spirit of Deadpool and its source material to the highest esteem. This is what Deadpool would do. Straight up. If the marketing campaign and Ryan Reynolds are having THIS MUCH FUN… imagine the movie?
I mean, really, by now; you either want to see the movie or you do not want to see the movie. For me, yeah, I want to see the movie. Bad. It seems to be a refreshing, balls to the wall superhero movie that cares more about their audience and less about the people outside the Deadpool bubble. Wide audience be damned – come February 12th, I have no doubt I’ll be sitting with a raucous audience and loving every second.
So for everyone out there in the Nation, how you feeling about Deadpool? Who will be there opening night? I really am curious because this movie – judging by the marketing – is a new type of superhero movie, Hard R and all that… So it will be interesting to see if audiences embrace this irreverent new hero.
