The X-Men spinoff, Deadpool is already garnering a legion of fans thanks to its recent presentation at Comic-Con International and now we have a better look at the upcoming superhero film. Set for release sometime in February 2016, the 20th Century Fox superhero flick will see Ryan Reynolds ham it up on camera as the iconic merc-with-a-mouth, a.k.a. Wade Wilson.
The film will also see a number of co-stars join in on the fun with Morena Baccarin playing Wilson’s love interest, Vanessa Carlysle and T.J. Miller as his trusty assistant, Weasel. Also appearing in the film are stable X-Men characters, Angel Dust (Gina Carano), Ajax (Ed Skrein), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand).
As far as the story for the film goes though, Deadpool will stick close to his Marvel Comics’ origins. The film will be an origins tale of a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary who gains accelerated healing powers, after being subjected to a rogue experiment.
Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humour, Wilson adopts the alter ego, Deadpool to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Take a look at the gallery below for more Deadpool action ahead of that first trailer that’s supposed to hit the internet pretty darn soon.
