Ed Skrein Says Deadpool Will Have Plenty of Hilarious Material for a Blooper Reel
Deadpool wouldn't be Deadpool without snarky quips and insults, and from the first trailer, Ryan Reynolds's iteration of the character seems to deliver that in spades, especially in his interactions with T.J. Miller's Weasel. According to co-star Ed Skrein, who plays Weapon X villain Ajax, Reynolds and Miller ad-libbed many of the jokes they deliver in the film, and that there are often many versions of one joke that will hopefully end up on a blooper reel. 



Of all the hilarious moments of the Deadpool red band trailer, one of the highlights was the exchange in which Ajax tells Wade of the Weapon X program: "The one thing that never survives this place is a sense of humor," and Wade replies, "We'll see about that, Posh Spice." According to Skrein, not only was that line improvised by Reynolds, but many equally creative insults were ad-libbed for the same scene:

Opening quote
"The only sad thing about the scene was that Ryan did about seven different versions of that, and being called 'Posh Spice' is the only one I've seen so far," Skrein told USA Today. "I hope that some of the other ones come out. Maybe (the filmmakers) will release a blooper reel with all the other alternatives. Ryan is such a funny guy and had so many comedic moments. That was just one of them."

Skrein also sang T.J. Miller's praises:

Opening quote
"When you have people like Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller in the movie, you can guarantee that they are going to be riffing. Especially T.J. He was like an uncontrollable substance. He made everyone on the set laugh so much, he had everyone in tears."
Closing quote


And just for good measure, here's the amazing Trump Pool trailer, which re-cuts the Deadpool trailer with dialogue (and hair) from the presidential candidate (who is also Batman, by the way): 



The video is hilarious, but also just highlights how much Trump sounds like a typical comic book villain most of the time. We can almost forgive the disrespect shown to Hillary Clinton to hear TJ Miller tell Trump he looks like "an avocado that had sex with an older avocado."

The official synopsis for Deadpool reads:

Opening quote
Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
