Deadpool Green-Band Trailer Still Has A Bite


Green-band!?  Are you kidding me!?  Why in the world would I want to see a PG-rated trailer after I’ve seen Deadpool in all his glory?  Well, for starters, for people like me who can’t even fathom not seeing a single scene — no matter how tame and wimpy — of something I love, it doesn’t hurt to see what the differences are between the green-band trailer and the big-boy trailer.

Deadpool started enticing viewers a couple of days ago when he released a teaser for his own trailer (yes, I know Deadpool  is not a real person and it was the studio).  The Merc with a Mouth then joined forces with Conan O’Brien with three Twitter messages.  The first was responded to by actor Ryan Reynolds with a Conan/Deadpool combo logo.  The second showed the late night talk show host and Reynolds, in-costume, sharing a cozy moment.  And the final one was a taped segment showing how Deadpool once saved Conan’s life.  These all led up to the highly anticipated red-band trailer’s release on Conan.

The green-band trailer was to be premiered with the release of Fantastic Four this Friday, August 7, 2015.  However, it seems that 20th Century Fox has chosen to release it in conjunction with the less family-friendly one (well, maybe the green-band trailer isn’t that family-friendly, but you know what I mean).  The green-band trailer, of course, has the usual edits of taking out strong language, sexually suggestive scenes, and over-the-top violence (you know, everything that gets people to the theaters), but it doesn’t lack in the humor department which is a hallmark of Deadpool.  Take a look for yourself … and make sure to watch it until the very end.

Deadpool’s taunt to the viewer is probably the best additional scene.  I’m sure an obsessed fan with Final Cut Pro will soon combine scenes from the green-band trailer with the red-band trailer to make one super-cut, so that there are no compromises.

Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016.  The film will be directed by Blur Films visual effects veteran Tim Miller, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and X-Men: Days of Future Past screenwriter Simon Kinberg.  The cast includes Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Ed Skrein as Ridge, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, aka Vanessa Carlysle, and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
