Ever since the first Deadpool trailer hit the Hall H stage at San Diego Comic-Con, eager Marvel fans have been awaiting the day it would land online in glorious hi-res. That wait will end in just a couple of days, when the first official footage of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth debuts on Conan this week.
The TBS talk show announced that Reynolds will drop in to chat with Conan O’Brien on Tuesday, Aug. 4, a night that will also feature appearances by Ant-Man star Judy Greer and Catfish & The Bottlemen. “Ryan Reynolds debuts the new red band trailer for Deadpool,” the show’s schedule says. “We’re filling up his dressing room with chimichangas in anticipation.”
Deadpool also features Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Ed Skrein as Ajax, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Andre Tricoteux as Colossus. The first footage was a hit at the Con, thanks to efforts by Reynolds and director Tim Miller to drum up buzz and land the film an R rating. While on the set, writer-producer Simon Kinberg told Entertainment Weekly that you either have to “commit to a truly outrageous, boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.”
Deadpool will hack ’n’ slash his way onto the big screen on Feb. 12, 2016.
