In the new red-band trailer for Deadpool, Marvel goes the extra mile to prove that superhero movies aren’t just for kids — in fact, this one seems to be aimed more strictly toward adults. Ryan Reynolds plays the crass and humorous antihero, a suitable role for the actor whose Green Lantern film (which is slyly mocked in the trailer) wasn’t exactly well-received. This time, Reynolds’ aggressive character is more violently taking down his offenders with guns, cunning tricks, and a sharp tongue.

The film is rife with R-rated content, including nudity, graphic battle scenes, and lascivious jokes aplenty (Deadpool refers to himself as looking “like a testicle with teeth”), and seems to do away with the conventional martyrdom of most superhero plotlines. Reynolds’ character, Wade Wilson, clearly enjoys slaying in a manner largely different from past Marvel heroes: “Daddy needs to express some rage,” Reynolds mutters mid-fight. The movie’s alternative edge is perfectly conveyed with the trailer’s soundtrack, which includes Salt-N-Peppa’s hip-hop hit “Shoop.” You’ll want to watch with the volume fully turned up.

The film is directed by Tim Miller and the script is penned by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool is set for release on February 12, 2016.
