‘Deadpool’ to Dominate the Super Bowl, Watch Negasonic Teenage Warhead Fight in New Clip
We’re still waiting for more of an official update on what trailers we can expect to see during this year’s Super Bowl, but there’s one film that will definitely have a big presence at the game. Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth will be on hand for the 2016 Super Bowl on February 7, with Fox planning some special Deadpool preview content to run during and around the game. In addition, the studio has released a new clip, featuring Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead packing a serious punch.
We’ve seen a shortened version of the scene above in the trailers, but Fox has offered a slightly longer look at the sequence in which Negasonic Teenage Warhead shows Gina Carano’s Angel Dust just how she earned that name. And there’s plenty of witty quipping from Reynolds’ Deadpool, obviously. Out of context, these jokes haven’t been that funny, but hopefully the actor’s take on the popular character works better within the film as a whole.
Meanwhile, THR reports that Reynolds will be at the Super Bowl in San Francisco, where he’ll be serving chimichangas — in costume — to hungry fans from a food truck outside the stadium. Fox will also run new promotional ads and previews during the live telecast and via their social media accounts.
The studio is also bringing Independence Day: Resurgence stars Jeff Goldblum and Liam Hemsworth to the game, along with promos of some type planned for Eddie the Eagle and X-Men: Apocalypse — actors and new TV spots from those films may appear as well.
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12.
