Deadpool Is Hitchhiking to Comic-Con 2015 in New Photo
Deadpool is coming to Comic-Con this week, but first he needs a ride to San Diego. Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to post yet another awesome photo of the Merc With a Mouth, this time in a more unofficial capacity as he prepares to head to Comic-Con with 20th Century Fox and the Deadpool crew.
Reynolds’ latest photo of the mercenary is quite funny, and references the character’s love of Mexican cuisine:
The actor will be at Comic-Con this week at the 20th Century Fox panel on Saturday, July 11. We’ll be bringing you a full report from the panel as well as any breaking news on Deadpool, X-Men: Apocalypse and Fantastic Four.
So far we know that Deadpool is targeting an R-rating and will be more in keeping with the profane and violent comic than the character’s depiction in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (thank goodness). Reynolds co-stars in the film with T.J. Miller as Weasel, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Ed Skrein as Ajax.
The film centers on Wade Wilson, a Special Forces operative who is captured and subjected to a series of torturous secret military tests which leave him with the ability to heal and regenerate rapidly (like Wolverine, kind of). After escaping the program, Wilson takes up the Deadpool persona, using his mercenary training and new abilities to go on a vigilante mission, seeking revenge on the man who destroyed his life.
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
