Want proof that Ryan Reynolds is doing some of his own stunts in Deadpool? Well, that will be hard to prove, as he is wearing a mask most of the time. But the actor claims this is him, doing a dangerous backflip over a car on the Vancouver set, dressed in full costume. While we don't get to see it here, he does claim that he 'stuck the landing'. Though maybe not as initially intended.
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.
Stay tuned for more photos and video from the set of Deadpool as it enters its final stretch of filming. It isn't known how much longer the shoot in Vancouver will last. Ryan Reynolds announced in April that they were midway through production, so we can probably expect to hear wrap called sometime in June. Then it won't be too long until we get the first trailer! While we wait, take a look and enjoy Ryan Reynolds' last few weeks on set:
