On April Fools Day, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds sent out a video to confirm the film's R rating. The viral announcement featured Extra TV host Mario López, who eventually gets clobbered over the head by the Marvel superhero. It seems the brutal abuse has continued onto the Vancouver set, where Mario López posted a new photo, this time with an unmasked Ryan Reynolds taking a literal swing at the former Saved by the Bell actor.
Mario López is not listed as a member of the cast for Deadpool, though at this point it seems likely that he may cameo. He is probably just visiting the set as a reporter, where he will do a true set visit piece for Extra. We'll be sure to update you if we hear otherwise.
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. The supporting cast includes Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein and T.J. Miller.
