With a new trailer set to hit any day now, some images from the upcoming Tim Miller-directed Deadpool film have surfaced. These images from Empire show ‘Pool with the two ladies in his life – his girlfriend Vanessa and his sidekick Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
The leaked San Diego Comic-Con footage confirmed that we’ll get the origin of the Merc with a Mouth, showing him before and after the process that gives him his superpowers. These images bore that out, as we see Wade Wilson (DP’s real name) in civvies with his best girl Vanessa. Then we have the after, as he’s covered head-to-toe in his classic read and black togs with NTW in tow.
There’s also a pic of Deadpool just holding some swords. Which is always a welcome sight.
You wouldn’t know from looking at these pics that Deadpool is probably going to be one of the funniest films of 2016. But the cast reassured us that we’d be getting the Deadpool that we all know and love from the comic books on the big screen.
“I think this is the most faithful adaptation of a superhero from a comic to a movie I’ve ever seen,” said Ryan Reynolds, the actor portraying Deadpool, at Comic-Con. “We have here the Merc with a Mouth. The mouth is not at any point in the film sewn shut.”
Oh, Ryan Reynolds…only you can reference X-Men Origins: Wolverine and not make me want to stab myself in the temple with a sewing needle.
Deadpool will slice and shoot its way into theaters February 12, 2016.
