The new trailer for Ryan Reynolds‘ Marvel superhero flick, Deadpool, was released on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
It begins with Reynolds as future hero Wade Wilson, who is struggling with his debilitating health. “The cancer’s only in my liver, lungs, prostate and brain,” he says in the opening scenes. “All things I can live without.”
He’s then offered a golden opportunity that will give him speedy healing powers. Wilson transforms into Deadpool, the sarcastic, butt-kicking, red-suited anti-hero of the film.
The movie offers gratuitous amounts of violence — including crazy stunts of Deadpool flipping over cars and defying gravity, all while shooting guns at bad guys — as well as nudity, sex, and NSFW language. There’s a flurry of smashed cars, explosions, gunshots, and plenty of physical contact too.
“You may be wondering why the red suit?” Deadpool asks a shocked group of armed men in one scene. “Well, that’s so bad guys can’t see me bleed.”
This isn’t Reynolds’ first time starring as an action hero. The hunk also played test pilot Hal Jordan in 2011’s Green Lantern, the movie costarring his future wife, Blake Lively. In an interview with AOL BUILD last month, Reynolds said he was looking forward to spending more time with Lively and their baby girl James, 7 months, after promotions slowed down.
“I’m incredibly grateful and lucky to have the job that I have, to be totally frank and serious. I don’t take it for granted for a second,” the hunk said. “We have long hours, but we also get breaks, unlike most people who get one week off a year — I might have three months off. I really cherish that, especially having a daughter. Those three months used to drive me insane, when I was a young buck, single and carefree. Now I just want to be with my daughter.”
At the time, Lively was living in Bangkok with their baby girl. “When I wrapped Deadpool five weeks ago, within an hour — I’m not joking, I still had chunks of glue from the scar makeup on my face — I was boarding a plane to Bangkok so I could get to my wife and baby right away,” Reynolds shared. “I’ll do anything to be with them.”
Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016. Watch the trailer above!
