43 Times Deadpool Marketing Nailed It

List RulesVote up the promotional material Deadpool himself would love most

Movie marketing doesn't get better than Deadpool's promotional campaign. It has revealed so little while telling audiences oh-so much. Normally by the time a superhero movie rolls around, fans can piece together all the teasers, trailers, TV spots, and clips to spoil the film itself, or least a hefty chunk of it. This hasn't been the case at all for the Deadpool films.

Each and every piece of the marketing feels like it was plucked out of Deadpool's brain. It's like the Marvel Comics character decided to write, direct, and star in a movie about himself and we're witnessing the ads he'd want released for it!

Whether it's one of the many perfect movie posters, or one of the hilarious and generally misleading Deadpool movie billboards, or any of the many vignettes and shorts they've filmed to promote the film, it's all pure Deadpool! We've gathered up some of our favorite pieces of marketing here. These are all the times Deadpool's marketing team proved they deserved a raise.
