The reviews for Deadpool may already be in (check out our review HERE) but that hasn’t stopped FOX from continuing its marketing assault. In what has arguably been the most aggressive, unique, and damn near hilarious marketing campaigns for any movie ever, Deadpool now finds himself on one of the largest stages in the world… Superbowl 50.
The new spot features is laced with some Football humor (naturally) followed by the same movies scenes we’ve already seen a hundred times cut in a different order. But we’re not in it for the footage, hearing Deadpool say absurdities like “I’ve always wanted to be a professional athlete cause I wanted to have children in cities all over the world.” on a national scale is the ticket.
The spot labels Deadpool as a “game changer”. Well, when they’re right, they’re right. Deadpool is a un-elegant superhero for an uncivilized age.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
