As most of you are well aware, 20th Century Fox unveiled the first footage from director Tim Miller’s Deadpool at Comic-Con over the weekend, and to say it was a hit would be a massive understatement. In the sizzle reel, Miller and the cast showed fans how this wasn’t going to be a typical Marvel movie. Loaded with bloody violence, expletives, and everything you’d expect to see in a R-Rated Deadpool movie, the footage played so well that when moderator Chris Hardwick wanted to get to the next section of the Fox panel, the entire crowd started chanting “one more time” so they could see the footage again. In all my years of covering Comic-Con, I’ve never seen that happen. It was a very cool moment.
Shortly before the presentation, I landed an extended video interview with Ed Skrein (he plays Ajax, who helps create Deadpool). During our wide-ranging conversation, he talks about being at Comic-Con, making Deadpool, being a huge comic book fan, the movie Kill Your Friends with Nicholas Hoult, The Transporter Refueled, and also plays “Save or Kill." For all of that and much more, check out the interview below:
