New ‘Deadpool’ Photo Lets the Merc With a Mouth Defy Gravity
The tide of Deadpool images and promotional materials has slowed down to a bit of a trickle, which may be a good thing considering that the film doesn’t even hit theaters until February — and we’ve already seen so, so much from it. But 20th Century Fox has released a new, very cool image today, featuring the Merc With a Mouth flying through the air like an action hero badass.
Here’s a larger version of the image above (click for high-res):
That’s a shot you’ll recognize from the trailers, with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool soaring through the air while shooting at baddies. It’s one of the highlights of the trailer, though personally I am partial to watching Deadpool make violent doodles with crayons while listening to Salt-N-Pepa. If that were the entire film, I’d be okay with it.
But it’s not:
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.
Deadpool also stars T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
