The 20th season of “The Bachelor” — yes, that’s not a typo, “The Bachelor” has now been on for 20 seasons — debuted tonight on ABC. Normally, that wouldn’t really be news on CBR, but a new “Deadpool” TV spot aired during the season premiere.
While it’s mainly footage from the most recent “Deadpool” trailer, the spot contains a new intro with Ryan Reynolds‘ title character making light of the seemingly odd fit between the two properties. “Surprise,” Reynolds says, in character as the Marvel mercenary. “This is actually a love story.” The subsequent footage focuses partly upon between the relationship between Wade Wilson (the pre-transformation Deadpool) and Vanessa, his love interest played by Morena Baccarin.
Directed by Tim Miller, “Deadpool” debuts in theaters on Feb. 12 — appropriately enough given this new commercial, right before Valentine’s Day.
