Prepare yourself for Deadpool's 12 Days of Christmas with new poster

Yesterday brought the exciting news that a new Deadpool trailer (opens in new tab) will be arriving on Christmas Day. To make the wait a little easier, the marketing whizzes at 20th Century Fox have come up with #12DaysofDeadpool, which will see the release of a new piece of promotional material from the movie for the next 12 days (starting yesterday).

Check out the announcement from the merc with a mouth himself below...

So what's today's piece of promo we hear you ask? Well, it's a particularly saucy poster for the antihero via Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab). If you blush easily, look away now...

This is yet another masterstroke in a hilarious, pitch-perfect marketing campaign for Deadpool, and it's safe to say that Reynolds has already won a few fans from his promos so far. Keep 'em coming, I say!

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller and Gina Carano, Deadpool will open in UK cinemas on February 4, 2016 before arriving in US theatres on February 12, 2016.
