The first footage from Deadpool hit Comic-Con’s Hall H last month to a more than rousing response from fans in attendance. It was leaked online of course shortly afterwards, and star Ryan Reynolds tweeted that an official version would be released to the masses once the visual effects were finalized.
Following yesterday’s teaser, the edgy first trailer just went online with a broadcast debut set for Conan later tonight. The sneak peek forced to talk show to go with an TV-MA rating, did not disappoint in its final version in full HD complete with the expected gore and profanity we saw in the Comic-Con footage (and hello Colossus!)

Here is Deadpool‘s official synopsis:
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.
Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller and set for a February 12, 2016 release, stars Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson/Deadpool), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa Carlysle/Copycat), T.J. Miller (Weasel), Ed Skrein (Ajax), and Gina Carano (Angel Dust).
