Why “Deadpool’s” Official Trailer is different from its Comic Con Version

Everyone’s favorite MARVEL mercenary, Deadpool, will finally grace the big screen with violence and his dark sense of meta humor on February 12, 2016. Fans of the “Merc with the Mouth” got a treat twice in a row, as two kinds of trailers for the film were released- one for the recently concluded Comic Con, and the official trailer. However, when one compares the trailer released during Comic Con with the official trailer, one would notice that some of the scenes released during Comic Con are missing. Thankfully, director Tim Miller managed to clear the air by explaining why this was so. Read on to learn more about the difference between the trailer released at Comic Con and the official trailer, and as to why this was done.

Fans who are looking forward to finally watching “The Merc with a Mouth” in action got an interesting treat during Comic Con when film’s trailer was screened for an eager audience of convention goers and fans alike.


Fans who weren’t able to get to see that version of the trailer finally got a glimpse as to what Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool would be like when the official “Red Band” trailer was released a few days ago.

However, for those who have seen both trailers, it is noticeable that several scenes in the trailer released during Comic Con were missing in the officially released trailer. According to the film’s director, Tim Miller, in an interview with Empire, stated that the longer version had more Deadpool “in-jokes” and was created intentionally for those at Comic Con. Now that many are beginning to talk about the upcoming film, they had to remove some of the scenes that weren’t applicable for a non-Comic Con audience, and so that they won’t be revealing everything at once.

According to Movie Pilot, among the things that they removed from the “Red Band” trailer included Stan Lee’s obligatory cameo appearance, and a cameo appearance from the character’s creator, Rob Liefeld, where he addressed those at Hall H at Comic Con.

Other scenes that were removed were moments such as Deadpool insulting Colossus when they first met, and Deadpool’s initial reaction towards Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who is being portrayed by Brianna Hildebrand.
