Ryan Reynolds has one request if he’s going to be a super-anything again: “Please don’t make the super suit green. Or animated!” As Wade Wilson/Deadpool, also known as the “merc with a mouth,” Reynolds is more antihero than superhero. The latest Marvel Comics character to get a film of his own derives his superhuman powers (beefed-up healing, strength, and stamina) from genetic experimentation, which he agrees to after a bleak cancer diagnosis. It leaves him looking a little … weird. Or, as Wilson himself puts it, “like a testicle with teeth.”
There’s plenty more foulmouthed snarking—plus some tantalizing action—in the newly released red-band trailer. Deadpool hits theaters in February 2016.
