Once Upon A Deadpool TV spot is full of holiday cheer
Now that the holiday season is here, it’s time we all look forward to a visit from a certain wholesome, red-clad someone. Meaning Deadpool, of course. 20th Century Fox has released a Christmas-themed TV spot for the release of the more family-friendly version of Deadpool 2, titled Once Upon a Deadpool.
Once Upon a Deadpool will contain footage from Deadpool 2, but edited down to a PG-13 format which means cutting some of the violence and language. Fans can also expect new footage “in the form of a framing sequence” in the revamped film that Ryan Reynolds and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick devised for the project.
Fred Savage will reprise his role from the 1987 classic, The Princess Bride, in the new framing sequence alongside Reynold’s Deadpool. Eight scenes were filmed for the new footage in the upcoming project.
Additionally, the movie will raise money for charity. For every ticket sold, $1 will be given to F-ck Cancer.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 finds Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) stars as Black Tom, with Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) playing Yukio and Firefist.
Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus. The sequel was written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds.
Once Upon a Deadpool charms its way into theaters December 12.
