After a tease earlier this year, Ryan Reynolds has unveiled the first image of the costume he will be wearing in next years Deadpool movie. Bearing more than a slight resemblance to the iconic Burt Renyolds magazine spread in the 70’s.
Showing more of a link to the classic Deadpool look, with the red and black colour scheme, than the version shown in 2009’s X-men Origins: Wolverine.
The movie has been long in gestation, with rumors first arriving straight after Origins was released, with fans asking for a real interpretation of the Merc with the Mouth. After some leaked test footage last year, 20th Century Fox decided to greenlight the film, based on the positive fan reaction to the footage.
Some extra casting was announced last month with Silicon Valley’s T.J Miller and FireFly’s Morena Baccarin as Weasel and Vanessa respectively.
Deadpool will be director Tim Miller’s first film, and is set for release on 12th of February 2016
