'Deadpool' teaser trailer proves he really is the Merc with a Mouth

If you're going to do a teaser trailer, this is how you do it. Fox's "Deadpool" teaser (not safe for work) is one big ball of meta that definitely breaks the fourth wall.

They don't call him the Merc with a Mouth for no reason. Fox released a teaser trailer for the upcoming antihero movie "Deadpool" on Monday, and it's nearly one minute of cursing as Ryan Reynolds teases the release of the film's first full-length trailer, which will premiere on "Conan" on Tuesday.

While it isn't a full trailer, the teaser gives viewers a great look at the kind of character Deadpool is. He's self-aware, he's a smartass and he's definitely no stranger to dropping an f-bomb or two to drive his point home. He also isn't afraid to poke fun at Fox, the studio that released "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," which featured a version of the character that seemed to pretty much ignore everything about the character from the comic books.

He isn't even above making jabs at the actor who plays him, described by Deadpool as "five-time Academy Award viewer" Ryan Reynolds. This is Deadpool at his finest, and we can't wait to see the full-length trailer on Tuesday.

You can watch the "Deadpool" teaser in the clip below. If you're feeling a sense of deja-vu, a slightly different version of this clip was broadcast during the Fox panel at Comic-Con in July, but was tweaked a bit to create this incredible teaser.

"Deadpool" will premiere in the UK on February 5, 2016, followed by an international release that includes Australia on February 11 and the US on February 12.

Warning: The Merc with a Mouth runs his mouth in the video below. Only click play if you can handle some cursing.
