Ryan Reynolds has tweeted out another funny Deadpool image, and it’s an important one. It reminds us that Deadpool isn’t just a foul-mouthed, anti-hero who’s willing to pepper his enemies with bullets and jokes. He can do more than just kill and break the fourth wall. He can also deliver babies. See:

I continue to be amused by the little flashes we’ve seen of the character. Some may argue that it’s slightly on the side of cutesy, but I think it comes off as gleefully silly. And in a world of comic book movies that are becoming increasingly serious, we could use a movie like Deadpool.
Deadpool opens February 12, 2016 and also stars Ed Skrein as Ajax, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and T.J Miller as Weasel.
Here’s the official synopsis for Deadpool:
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.
