Deadpool's trailer for the Deadpool trailer is better than most trailers

New, 25 comments

The upcoming Deadpool film now officially has a trailer ... for tomorrow's trailer.

Featuring jokes about the disastrous first appearance of the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and winking knowledge of how stupid it is to do a trailer for a trailer, the whole thing is more fun than it has any right to be, but that's to be expected from a promotional campaign that involved following Hello Kitty on Twitter.

This is a film that knows how to make its own rating into a good joke, and that sort of thing has made us nearly as excited about the marketing leading up to the film as the film itself, which is a weird thing to admit.
