20th Century Fox is making sure everyone knows full well that Deadpool is not your typical superhero film. To illustrate that point, Deadpool made a cameo in the Esurance "Pass It On Sweepstakes" commercial, poking fun of the "Cat Up A Tree" trope commonly found in superhero films.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
