AceShowbiz - 20th Century Fox continues delivering some interesting stuff for Deadpool fans, this time via EW. The studio has debuted two new images which see %cRyan Reynolds% both as the red-suited superhero and as Wade Wilson.
The first image features Reynold's Deadpool fighting against %cEd Skrein%'s Ajax on the deck of a crashed airship. Ajax is seen furiously swinging his double axes as he attempts to hit the Merc With a Mouth. Avoiding his adversary, Deadpool holds his Katanas, named Bea and Arthur, in both hands. As for the other photo, it shows Reynolds' Wilson as he goes shirtless, flaunting his six-pack abs.
Skrein commented on the clash his character had with the title superhero, "Ryan's like Muhammad Ali, dancing around, whispering in my ear, and I'm George Foreman. Every blow is like a haymaker and I just want to take his head off." Reynolds then responded to Skreins' statement, "Ed got yoked for the movie. I saw his arms and got pretty upset at myself for not working out harder."
The team behind the movie seems to be pretty optimistic about their approach to the tone of the movie. "Deadpool is nothing but tangents, and our attitude was just 'Let's embrace him,' " director Tim Miller said of the lead character. Additionally, Reynolds shared about how the jokes in the movie were made. "[The set] was an alternate-joke factory. For one joke in the movie we wrote 16 versions," he revealed.
"Deadpool" tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wilson, who agrees to become the subject of a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers. He later uses his abilities as Deadpool to fight against criminals in town. Reynolds is joined by the likes of %cMorena Baccarin%, %cBrianna Hildebrand% and %cT.J. Miller% in the cast. Directed by Tim Miller, the movie is due to arrive in the U.S. on February 12, 2016.
