This was quickly followed by another update, in which Deadpool can be seen lurking in the woods and listening out for something alongside the caption: “The Merc is Out There.” We want to believe!

Early screenings of the film were met with overwhelming approval last week in New York and L.A, instantly ramping up the excitement even more so.

We’ll have to wait until February 12 to get our dose of the Merc though. In the meantime, have another trailer…

Oh and if that wan’t enough, this new action-packed trailer should hit the right spot:
