Ryan Reynolds Surprised Fans by Showing Them All of Deadpool Last Night; First Reactions Appear Online

Recommended Videos

Whoever’s in charge of Deadpool marketing continues to excel at their job.

Yesterday, Fox held an event for fans in New York and L.A. advertised as a chance to see “first look footage” of the movie. Instead, attendees were shown the entire film and met some of its stars–Reynolds hung out at the NYC screening (see above), and T.J. Miller (Weasel), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and Stan Lee attended the L.A. event.

The fan reactions to the movie started hitting social media soon after the screenings:

I’m personally taking these reviews with a grain of salt since I imagine fans who were dedicated enough to brave yesterday’s cold (here in NY, at least) just to see some ‘first look footage’ have a different base level of excitement for Deadpool than I do. I also know that if Ryan Reynolds had rewarded me with a surprise screening, I’d have a hard time not being very enthusiastic about whatever we watched together.

That being said, this was a really smart move on the part of the Deadpool team, and they’ve successfully raised my hype slightly. Are you excited for February 12th, friends?
