#12DaysOfDeadpool continues today, and after a few days of funny but not very interesting material, we now have a brilliant new poster and a very cool Empire Magazine cover.

The next trailer for Deadpool is now just a week away – that’s right, it’s actually coming out on Christmas Day! – and it will be intriguing to see what else we get from Fox before then.

Ryan Reynolds is clearly embracing the character, but whether all of this will pay off remains to be seen. Deadpool’s R-Rating means it has a lower budget, but if audiences don’t fancy the look of this movie, it’s going to bring the potential new franchise to an end very quickly!

Of course, with Kingsman: The Secret Service vastly overperforming at the box office this year, moviegoers clearly have an interest in more adult orientated comic book adaptations, while the fact that Deadpool is a superhero has to give his movie a chance of succeeding!

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional (and popular) anti-heroes, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), 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 humour, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and set to be released on February 12th, 2016. Check out the new Deadpool images in the gallery below!
