When we get to see a superhero suit for the first time, normally studios send a standard photo of the title hero in a heroic pose. So after years of waiting, we are finally getting a proper Deadpool film – especially after the character was completely wasted in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but there’s no heroic pose in sight this time.
The first image of the Merc with a Mouth has appeared online and it’s set up is classic Deadpool style. Production has already begun on the film, with Fox scheduling Deadpool for a February 2016 release. And Ryan Reynolds, who will reprise his character, has been generous to share the experience with his followers on social media. So hit the jump to check out the first photo of Reynolds as Deadpool in full costume.
Here’s what Reynolds posted to Twitter:
With great power, comes great irresponsibility. #deadpool #officialsuit @deadpoolmovie
Along with the first image, which debuted on Reynold’s Twitter account today, there’s also the official plot synopsis. Now this would be the first time we would see the character in full costume since Reynolds never really put one on in the Origins. But, technically, this really wouldn’t be the first time we saw Reynolds in full costume. Last year, the proof of concept leaked online, which in turn helped boost the interest of seeing the character in a film. And as a result of that, Fox gave the green light.
Fox plans to release Deadpool on February 12, 2016. Directed by Tim Miller, from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the film also stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano.
Here’s the official plot 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.
