‘Deadpool’ To Take Over The Superbowl Next Week

It’s become something of a tradition for big studios to reveal footage from some of their soon-to-be-released blockbusters during the annual Superbowl. With Tim Miller’s Deadpool coming out in less than a couple of weeks, it makes sense that 20th Century Fox would debut a new TV spot for the movie, but it appears that the Merc with the Mouth’s presence will be much bigger than that, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Ryan Reynolds himself will be there with a food truck to hand out chimichangas during the event. The studio is also expected to reveal footage from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence.

The very next day, Fox will host the press junket for the movie in a bar, where Reynolds along with T.J. Miller will serve drinks and have a good time with those in attendance after their interviews. The place will be renamed to “Sister Margaret’s Bar” specifically for the junket, which is likely where Wade and Vanessa first meet in the movie. Then on Saturday, Deadpool will be screened for the press in San Francisco, so it looks like like he’ll be talking over the Superbowl next week.

Disney on the other hand will probably premiere footage from some of their upcoming titles, such as Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book and Zootopia. While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is also slated to hit theaters this year, we probably won’t see any footage from that movie until May. Meanwhile, THR reports that Warner Bros. won’t be bringing any footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, which is rather surprising, but it’s mentioned that “it’s possible a promotional partner could plug Batman v Superman”, so there’s still chance that we’ll see a new teaser for the former.

Additionally, Universal Studios will unveil a 60-second TV spot, which is more than likely the first official teaser trailer for Paul Greengrass’ currently untitled Bourne sequel. We’re also going to get a new look at Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. What do you guys think? Are you excited for all the new trailers?
