With production getting under way in Vancouver on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated Deadpool, star Ryan Reynolds shared the first official photo from the superhero adaptation on his Twitter page this morning. The photo gives us our first full look at the Deadpool costume, and also serves as a parody of Burt Reynolds' infamous nude bearskin rug photo from the April 1972 issue of Cosmpolitan Magazine. In addition, 20th Century Fox has released the first official synopsis, which you can check out below.
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.

Posing in a way that would make Rose DeWitt Bukater proud, the photo sees Reynolds don the superhero guise for a rather intimate still. Here’s what the actor had to share.

For the film, Reynolds will play the part of Wade Wilson, Marvel’s idiosyncratic anti-hero that earns his title as the Merc with a Mouth for his quirky one-liners and devastating physical abilities. The project has flirted with development for some time, particularly after the actor’s cameo in the otherwise poor X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but it was the tidal wave of support that rose to the fore following the release of last year’s excellent test footage. »

Well, if you were one of those who said you'd never believe a Deadpool movie was happening until you saw Ryan Reynolds, in costume, on the eve of production, then this is your moment. The Deadpool movie is definitely, definitely happening.
Accompanying the image, we now also have a first synopsis for the movie, that begins shooting in Vancouver shortly. It reads:

Clearly more than a little enthusiastic about getting to portray what he hopes we’ll all embrace as a proper version of snark-tastic Marvel antihero Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds has been the new movie’s biggest champion, sharing insights into pre-production via social media. Today he brings a first look at the Merc with a Mouth in full gear and in action… Sorry… inaction… posing on a bearskin in front of a roaring fire. Por qué? Because he’s Deadpool, that’s por qué. Deadpool, as you may already know, features former Special Forces warrior-turned-mercenary Wade Wilson, who undergoes a rogue experiment as part of the Weapon X plan that leaves him brutally scarred but also boasting Wolverine-like healing powers. Armed with his new abilities and his pitch-dark sense of humour, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life, while taking on other bad guys as he does so. »

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson. Directed by Tim Miller off a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on characters created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza for Marvel Comics, Deadpool also stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano and Ed Skrein, and scheduled for theatrical release on February 12th, 2016. A solo film centering on Deadpool -- a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary infamous for his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall -- has been in development for years, but thanks to the positive reception of leaked proof of concept footage (watch below) 20th Century Fox decided to fast-track the picture. »

Given that Deadpool's screen debut in X-Men Origins: Wolverine wasn't exactly what most people (comic fans or otherwise) were exactly looking for, a little something like this is nice to hear. Ryan Reynolds, who has long been a believer in the Deadpool movie, even when things seemed darkest (alright, fine, nothing was ever as dark as the fake-ass Baraka Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but you get the idea), is now saying all the right things.
In the words of Mr Reynolds, chatting to Shortlist, "we’ve got a director that understands that world, and writers with a slavish devotion to the canon of that character. That’s the most important aspect: it’s made in a way the most critical of fanboys could embrace. Well, that’s the hope."
Now, let's not get carried away, Ryan. »
Back in January, we reported that production will get underway in March, on location in Vancouver, for the highly-anticipated Deadpool comic book adaptation, which fans have been clamoring for ever since Ryan Reynolds portrayed the Merc With the Mouth in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While promoting his new indie comedy The Voices, Ryan Reynolds offered new details about the adaptation, revealing that even the most vocal fanboys will be pleased by Deadpool. Take a look at what he had to say below, praising the work of first-time director Tim Miller and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
"I'm incredibly happy about it - we've got a director that understands that world, and writers with a slavish devotion to the canon of that character. That's the most important aspect: it's made in a way the most critical of fanboys could embrace. Well, that's the hope."

Earlier this month, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds revealed that the test footage which leaked last year was "100% responsible" for this long-awaited comic book adaptation getting the green light, with production beginning in the actor's hometown of Vancouver next month. Of course, it wasn't just the footage being leaked that lead to the green light, but also the fans' overwhelmingly positive response to the video, which the actor acknowledged in a tweet to his 89,000 followers earlier today.
In another tweet from earlier this week, the actor acknowledges new cast members Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein and Morena Baccarin, stating that he, "can't wait for us all to snap our fingers menacingly to the Cats Soundtrack." Does this mean that there will be some sort of musical number featured in Deadpool? We can't say for sure, but Ryan Reynolds did say last month that they will get "to make the movie we want to make. »
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Homeland star Morena Baccarin has bagged the female lead in Fox’s Deadpool spinoff. The Firefly actress appeared last week on an early shortlist, and in the last seven days, she beat out fellow hopefuls Taylor Schilling, Crystal Reed, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Sarah Greene and Jessica De Gouw.
THR had no clarification on exactly who Baccarin will portray, but simply described her as a love interest for Ryan Reynolds’ scarred assassin. The Merc with a Mouth – as he’s affectionately referred to – will be joined on his first standalone flick by a strong, supporting cast. Alongside Baccarin, we’ll see Silicon Valley’s T.J. Miller in the comedy sidekick role, Game Of Thrones‘ Ed Skrein as the film’s villain, and Haywire‘s Gina Carano as a member of the Morlocks, Angel Dust.

Baccarin will portray the love interest for the titular character, an assassin with a scarred face who acquires superpowers while seeking a cure for his cancer. Gina Carano is also set to star as Angel Dust.
She’s repped by UTA, Seven Summits Pictures & Management and Jackoway Tyerman.
The news was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

After testing earlier this month, actress Morena Baccarin has landed the female lead role in 20th Century Fox's comic book adaptation Deadpool. The actress was believed to be the front runner for the role, beating out others in contention such as Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf) and Rebecca Rittenhouse (Red Band Society).
While her character's exact identity wasn't revealed, Morena Baccarin will play a potential love interest for Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), although she grapples with falling for a man with a disfigured face. The story centers on Wilson, an assassin who undergoes a procedure to cure his cancer, but the operation backfires, leaving him twisted and scarred while also giving him super powers. Morena Baccarin joins a cast that also includes Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as an unknown comedic character and Ed Skrein as a mysterious character who may be the villain. »
Following on from their success with undead comedy romp Zombieland and the upcoming Deadpool feature, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are eyeing up new material for their next project. According to a report from Film Divider, the pair are said to be toying with the idea of another adaptation, George Saunders’ short story, Escape From Spiderhead. Dropping the start of the title for the punchier Spiderhead, it’s expected that the duo will adapt the story for their joint directorial debut.
Described by the outlet as “rich in both sci-fi ideas and relevant, sometimes confrontational observations on free will, rehabilitation, love and depression,” that thematic outline alone is enough to warrant further exploration. Saunders’ tale originally appeared in The New Yorker back in 2010, and is currently available to view in its entirety on their site.
Set inside an experimental prison, the story spirals out to include a slew of »

A report surfaced last week that revealed the popular X-Men character Colossus will be featured in 20th Century Fox's comic book adaptation Deadpool. No details were given as to how he fits into the story, or if Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, will reprise his role. The actor revealed on his Twitter page last week that he couldn't comment on his involvement in Deadpool, but today, the actor revealed that he will not star in the superhero spinoff.
Of course, 20th Century Fox still hasn't confirmed that Colossus is even part of Deadpool yet, but the fact that the actor wouldn't comment on Friday before releasing a statement today likely means that the character will be involved. A casting call released yesterday described two male characters, dubbed "Ridge" and "Albert" as "Big, muscular and dangerous, »

Is it just us, or is Fox’s Deadpool standalone movie turning into a pretty star-studded affair? Alongside leading man Ryan Reynolds, comedy sidekick T.J. Miller and potential villain Ed Skrein, we’re now hearing that Haywire star Gina Carano has joined the movie.
The former Mma star is slated to play Angel Dust. In the Marvel comic storylines, the outlet reports that she “was part of an underground mutant group known as the Morlocks.” While she’s not a household name comic book staple, she might be by this time next year. With Carano in her stride at the moment, her transition to a comic caper ought to be a sight to behold and will no doubt make a solid impression.
