Ryan Reynolds has wanted to make Deadpool for a very, very long time, and now that production is officially underway, it looks like he’s having a blast. He’s been active on Twitter, sharing teases from the set, and on April Fool’s Day he broke the news that the movie will be rated R in a cheeky video that featured him in full costume. And today, Reynolds has shared a new Deadpool image the gives us a first look at how the antihero spends his time on the toilet.
Admittedly this isn’t a massive reveal, but it serves as our second official image of Reynolds in costume, so it’s surely of interest to fans of the character. And it appears that the assassin is enjoying some familiar reading material as well.
Visual effects artist Tim Miller directs the 20th Century Fox film, which we also just learned will feature Ajax as the film’s villain, played by Game of Thrones alum Ed Skrein. The cast also includes Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, and T.J Miller as Weasel. Deadpool opens in theaters on February 12, 2016.
Check out the image below, via Reynolds’ Twitter, followed by the official synopsis.
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.
