A handful of very lucky fans got the surprise of their lives today. There was a “fan appreciation” screening of “new footage” in New York and Los Angeles, which turned out to be advanced screenings of the Deadpool movie in its entirety!
Deadpool himself (Ryan Reynolds) made a surprise appearance at the New York screening held at the Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Stan Lee attended the one in Los Angeles at the AMC Century City. TJ Miller (Weasel), Brianna Hldebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), director Tim Miller and screenwriters Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick were there as well.
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.
The Deadpool movie opens in theaters on February 12,2016
