It's all over and done with! After years of waiting, Deadpool is finally in the can! Star Ryan Reynolds announced a wrap on production this morning, delivering one final photo from the set. He's chiseled his character's name into a blood-stained Vancouver wall, offering a bit of graffiti that won't soon go away! 'Deadpool was here!' Indeed.
Deadpool began shooting in late March, and to kick things off, Ryan Reynolds wanted to prove that this wasn't going to be your average Superhero movie. There would be no secrets on set, as the actor went about sharing tons of photos and video, starting with a full blown reveal of himself in costume, reenacting Burt Reynolds' infamous nude bearskin rug photo from the April 1972 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. From there, we got to see plenty of action, and learned about all of the actors and the characters they will be playing on the big screen. We even got a fun April Fools Day video promising the movie will be R rated.
But if you notice, Ryan Reynolds and his team played it very smart. Right now, it looks like all of Deadpool takes place on a bridge. He gloriously showed us every detail of the leaked viral footage as it was reshoot for this movie. But he really didn't show us anything else. We know the synopsis. This is Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool, and 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. And engages in epic car chase. Though, despite the fact that we feel as though we lived through the entire experience with Ryan Reynolds, there are still plenty of surprises to come!
The supporting cast includes T.J. Miller (Weasel), Gina Carano (Angel Dust), Morena Baccarin (Copycat) and Ed Skrein (Ajax). We get two X-Men in Colossus (a motion-capture character who does not yet have a voice actor attached) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). Now that shooting is complete, we're sure to get a trailer any day now. And it will be epic. And probably only contain shots of a bridge! Take a look at Ryan Reynolds's final Tweet from set:
