Will Smith doesn’t have to swear to sell records…but apparently Deadpool likes to use swearing to sell movies and/or Empire magazines! Sorry Slim Shady, I know you just had mom’s spaghetti but I had to steal a reference from you. I’m sure the Deadpool fans out there get that one! The above trailer continues the all-out marketing blitz for Deadpool by showcasing the latest issue of Empire (due out on December 31st) which apparently has been annexed by Marvel’s Regenerating Degenerate! I’m not entirely sure if all the things that the Merc with a Mouth calls out in the above video are contained therein, but come on…I think we all know what to expect from the likes of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool! I have to give it to them – Fox is certainly relentless with their promotion of the fan favorite character. The real question is, what will the marketing look like when Deadpool runs into the X-Men? That’s quite the scary thought!
