Kevin Smith Says Deadpool May Be Greatest Movie Ever Based On The Trailers Alone


Filmmaker and geek icon, Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats), is so enamored with the trailers 20th Century Fox has released for their R-rated Deadpool movie that he devoted a significant portion of his recent "Fat Man on Batman" podcast to showering them with tons of praise.

"It's time to f--king letup on Ryan Reynolds for Green Lantern because he's f--cking over-delivered on this Deadpool film," Smith said. "I haven't even seen it and based on the trailers alone, I'm like, 'This may be the greatest motion-picture ever made.' It's crazy! The tone is pitch perfect! He is perfectly cast! The costume looks f--king great! Colossus is in it!"

He then hopes that the film will fully-explore Deadpool's pansexuality, and compliments director Tim Miller.

Listen to Smith's full-comments in the video below.

Hey Kevin, save some of that praise for DC Films Presents: Dawn Of The Justice League, a special he's hosting, alongside Geoff Johns, that will feature new footage from Batman V. Superman, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. Click here for more details and to find out when it'll air on The CW later this month.

Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.

    I hope he's right when the film comes out next month.

  2. Agreed.  

    Kevin Smith can be very hyperbolic.  And he's rarely negative - no need to bring something down to loft something up - so if he thinks something is "good" to "great," it all usually ends in the "amazing" column.  I've heard him say "more of this, less of everything else" about so many things.  

    When he say's "This may be the greatest motion-picture ever made..." he really does just mean it'll be worth your hard-earned American dollars.
