The first image from Deadpool has been released, and it shows the hilariously deadly character, played by Ryan Reynolds, lying on a bearskin rug.
In possibly the best first look we’ve ever seen, Deadpool is seen lying on a bearskin rug, in front of a toasty, romantic fire. Actor Ryan Reynolds is going to nail this role, as the snarky, but incredibly lethal killer Deadpool. Click on the image below to view it in HD:
We have a feeling Deadpool is going to be a smashing box office success, despite its reported (and hoped for) R-rating. The comic character is entirely different than anything the average moviegoer has seen in a superhero/villain film, that they’re going to be blown away with just how unique the character is on the big screen.
Production is underway on Deadpool, hence the first look image, and Ryan Reynolds will most likely start keeping fans up-to-date on the ongoings that the onset hilarity brings. We’re excited to see this first image from the film, and although we’ve seen the highly-praised leaked test footaged, this image is the start of probably one of the most eventful film promotions we’ll see in a very long time.
Morena Baccarin has been cast as the female lead in the film, and fans may know her most recently from her role on the hit Showtime show Homeland. Another recent report revealed that actress and MMA fighter Gina Carano will have a role in Deadpool, and T.J. Miller will have a supporting role.
Supposedly he’ll be bringing comic relief, although we can’t imagine this film will need much of that with the lead character being known as the “merc with a mouth.” Deadpool hits theaters February 12, 2016.
