Deadpool is back in action today! Ryan Reynolds has returned to his hometown of Vancouver to shoot additional scenes for this Marvel adventure from 20th Century Fox. And guess what? None of this latest footage is taking place on a bridge! In fact, in the select few photos that have emerged from the restructured set, we're actually getting to see something new. And quite cool.
Reshoots have become quite common on almost all superhero movies. And it's no longer a sign of a production gone wrong. Instead, fans now see it as filmmakers setting out to make the best movie they can. And if they need additional footage to make something work, audiences are only the better for it. The latest reshoots for Deadpool appear to involve a garbage truck. We also get to see the anti-hero bum-rushing a sharp dressed, yet unidentified man. What exactly is going on in these scenes? We don't know yet. But they look exciting.
We're less than four months away from Deadpool hitting theaters across the country. The R rated superhero adventure will arrive in time for Valentine's Day, and we can't think of a better way to spend the holiday with a loved one. But from the looks of these latest images, you better wear your brown pants! Additional photography for the first installment in what Fox hopes becomes a very lucrative superhero franchise actually kicked off right before Halloween last month. And they are continuing through November. But don't worry, from what we here, a rough cut is completed, and these scenes will be woven back into the story structure in time for the movie's highly anticipated release.
Principle photography wrapped in May on Deadpool. And since that time, we've already gotten our first look at the trailer and quite a few stills. The crew returned to several original filming locations for their reshoot schedule. And in these tweets, we get to see the Merc with the Mouth suited back up and ready for business. You can check out even more photos here.
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. We've also learned that this will be the first pansexual superhero to ever be introduced on the big screen (meaning this guy is open to anything and anyone). Take a look.
