Is DEADPOOL Supposed To Be A Comedy?

Not like I am well versed in the Marvel superhero world at all, but I definitely didn't expect the trailer for DEADPOOL to be so silly, as in a comedy. Ryan Reynolds stars as the masked hero in the first footage from the film, which I know had polarized fans early on with its casting choice (I really have no beef with Reynolds, but...I did see The Green Lantern, so...).

Honestly, I do think Reynolds has enough charisma to headline a film, but even from the marketing I can already see people comparing this to the wit of Ant-Man. Check out the synopsis:

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.

Watch the red band trailer (definitely not suitable for all audiences):

DEADPOOL, which also stars Gina Carano and Morena Baccarin, is in theaters February 12, 2016.

I think this movie is going to be more in line with Super than Ant-Man. Seems like it's going to be gory and a hard R, which is a welcomed change, IMO.

It's going to be big gory and funny much like the comics. His comic books are generally funny and quite dark. Reynolds is perfect even If they messed up xmen origins
