Surprise. This is a different kind of superhero story. Or so the anti-hero, superhero Deadpool has claimed. In the spirit of giving, Marvel and 20th Century Fox released two new trailers for Deadpool on Christmas Day — and trust me, they didn't disappoint. In fact, the new trailers — one regular and one NSFW — might be some of the best gifts I received on Christmas. (And if that sounds crazy, then just like Deadpool, I don't really care.) But, through all of the unabashedly foul-mouthed, sarcastic, and unconventional superhero's witty verbiage, I realized something else that had been gifted to me — via these new Deadpool trailers — and that's this: Deadpool is basically all of us right now — post-Christmas.
Surprise. This is a different kind of Christmas story.
In case you couldn't tell, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, a former mercenary who's just been diagnosed with cancer in his liver, lungs, prostate, and brain. In a state of desperation, Wilson decides to become the subject of an experiment that leaves him with, let's just say, powers of the special variety. Wilson — who then adopts the alter ego Deadpool and dons a red spandex suit (naturally) — can heal from any injury.
Including the injury of living life after the holidays are over.
Yes, Deadpool might be physically indestructible, but the man still has feelings — and he understands your post-Christmas blues! Check out all the ways he understands, right now, below.
