Ryan Reynolds has been championing a live-action Deadpool movie over at Fox ever since X-Men Origins: Wolverine butchered the character so horribly years ago.
Yet here we are, just a year away from the actual film, which will have Reynolds finally play the infamous “Merc with a Mouth”.
Today, we’ve got an exclusive first-look at the costume, which can be seen above.
I love it and I love how silly and fun Reynolds is at revealing the image and I love that Fox is (hopefully) embracing the oddball character and his unusual way of going about things.
Official plot description 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. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
