"Deadpool," one of the most buzzed about San Diego Comic-Con trailers, is nowhere to be (properly) viewed by the public now desperately curious to see what the Hall H hype was about. If blurry cell phone footage isn’t quite the way you like to take your trailers, you may be out of luck for a few weeks until a polished version is available to view online.
But that’s no need to fret for long says “Deadpool” leading actor Ryan Reynolds. If you weren't among the lucky SDCC 2015 attendees at the 20th Century Fox panel on Saturday, you're not out of luck. Reynolds assured fans on social media that the “Deadpool” trailer will be available – soon.

Several outlets including The Hollywood Reporter are calling the “Deadpool” panel one of the winners of SDCC 2015. Whether it was the footage shown, the tone of the following panel discussion or Ryan Reynold’s take on Marvel’s first-ever foul-mouth superhero that won over fans and impressed industry insiders remains to be seen. The buzz that the first few minutes of “Deadpool” is generating is just what these studios hope the Comic-Con frenzy will spark for their movies.
The “Deadpool” addition to the Comic-Con 2015 schedule was rather last minute, so the absence of finished footage perhaps explains why organizers were hesitant to announce it beforehand. But in cheeky fashion, Ryan Reynolds let the world know on his Twitter profile, effectively setting up the tone for his katana-wielding superhero.
