k.i.l.l.i.n.g. (though based on the tone of Deadpool‘s Valentine’s Day trailer, you’d be forgiven if you thought the latter).
Both Deadpool and Suicide Squad seem to be exploring the darker sides of their prospective universes though if you ask me I think DC Films should thank whatever deity they worship that Fox’s entry is coming out six months before because while both films promise a darker–and certainly more violent, if the former’s R rating is any indication–take on superhero movies only one of them seems to be really innovating in the space.
The trailers for Deadpool promise a sense of irrelevance and fun that would be a serious differentiator if the two films were competing against each other directly.
That’s a line of commentary that’s pretty much negated by both coming out months apart, though its an interesting thought exercise.
