Conan O'Brien reveals that Deadpool literally saved his ass

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

Last night Ryan Reynolds visited Conan O'Brien to reveal the first full trailer for Deadpool, which, when it was aired at San Diego Comic Con, received a standing ovation and an immediate encore.

But seeing as how Conan is a talk show, they also, you know, talked, and the host wound up revealing that he's got a significant past with the super-anti-hero. Now, I know what you're thinking: does the headline of this post mean literally as in "literally" ... or literally as in "figuratively?"

You'll have to watch to find out.
