Marvel fans are pretty hardcore. In fact, the hardcore scale goes like this: normal people, bungee jumpers, green berets, Marvel fans. So it’s nice to hear how the guys behind superhero flick Deadpool rewarded their most dedicated devotees – with a celeb-filled screening of the film, a whole month early.
Fans in the US arrived at the event expecting to get a sneak peek of some unseen footage. But in fact they were treated to the movie itself, way ahead of schedule, along with appearances from stars and creatives. Leading man Ryan Reynolds was there, as you can see from his alarming selfie, along with Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld.
Obviously, Twitter just about imploded. Sentiments were summed up by @ItsEddyNotEddie, who was practically struck senseless with the excitement. “#Deadpool is so freaking drop dead awesomeness. Why did I use those words together well cause I just died”
It’s a great thing: show your core audience that you appreciate them, and they’ll stay loyal. And the rest of us? Well it might just have piqued our interest too…
