At a press conference for ‘Deadpool‘ last week, Ryan was asked “Who’s got the better butt, Deadpool or Captain America?” to which he answered “Chris Evans—he’s Captain America, he has a very powerful ass.” But not before saying, “My mom is listening to this.” (Oh Ryan..) Watch the video from Entertainment Tonight below.
20th Century Fox has released the first clip from Deadpool showing a (slightly) romantic scene of Ryan with Morena Baccarin.
In the latest snippet, released to Twitter, much of footage repeated, all of which is seemingly unremarkable except for one quick shot of the X-Men’s Blackbird.

20th Century Fox continues to roll out one of the best marketing campaigns with a new Deadpool promo in celebration of Australia Day (well, sort of…). Take a look at what he has to say for the people down under, and we all know he’s gonna bring up Hugh Jackman :)
20th Century Fox has released a new TV spot for “Deadpool” with a new footage showing Gina Carano’s Angle Dust fighting one of the major characters in the movie and a new ‘money shot’ scene.
More action than prom night, guaranteed. https://t.co/g8zbryIQIk

The Hollywood Reporter estimated “Deadpool” to be on course for a $55 million-plus debut next month. The Fox and Marvel film came on tracking Thursday, three weeks before it opens over the long Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend. Deadpool rolls out Feb. 12 opposite comedies Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single.
Those with access to prerelease services say the scores are strong for Deadpool among both males and females (as of now, it is the first choice among females). One service even has Deadpool crossing $60 million, and that’s before Fox makes its major marketing push.
The four-day Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend has become a lucrative frame for moviegoing. Last year, Fifty Shades of Grey debuted to a dazzling $93 million while Kingsman: The Secret Service launched to $41.8 million over the four days.
Tracking shows Paramount’s Zoolander 2, directed by and starring Ben Stiller opposite Owen Wilson, looking to gross north of $20 million, but those estimates could easily see an uptick in the coming days. That would place the comedy ahead of New Line’s How to Be Single, a female-skewing rom-com starring Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie and Leslie Mann.
