Deadpool footage is finally here, and it is looking awesome. But we’re not just here for the violence and the fourth-wall-breaking—we’re here to find out what secrets we can uncover from Fox’s new take on the merc with a mouth, as well as the decidedly NSFW differences between the two trailers.

Fox’s Women’s World Cup coverage has been hit or miss, but this intro featuring Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren reading Shel Silverstein’s “Where the Sidewalk Ends” is simply outstanding. That’s Explosions In The Sky’s “Your Hand In Mine” as the music bed.
