Following a trailer for the trailer released earlier in the week, the actual Deadpool trailer has dropped, confirming that the film will take an irreverent and self-parodic tone.

A re-working of the test footage for the film that proved so popular last year features heavily in the trailer, which was shown at Comic Con but got its TV and online premiere on US chat show Conan last night.

Lead actor Ryan Reynolds promised that the movie would be uncompromising and it certainly lives up to its R rating, being filled with triple headshots, katanas and gross-out jokes.

“You look like Freddie Krueger facef*cked a topographical map of Utah,” Reynolds character is told, who after getting an aggressive cancer is given “abilities most men only dream of” through enhancement surgery.

With Deadpool cracking jokes about CGI and lurid costumes, the film is in the same vein as fellow Marvel projects Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, which also laughed at the inherent absurdity of comic book superheroes.

The X-Men film universe is expanded through the film, with the introduction of comic favourites Ajax (Ed Skrein), Weasel (TJ Miller) and Angel Dust (Gina Carano).

Ryan Reynolds appeared in character on Conan last night for a massage skit, and earlier in the week crashed a Fantastic Four trailer.

Deadpool will has a theatrical release date of 5 February, 2016 in the UK and 12 February, 2016 in the US.
