Way back in the day, Burt Reynolds did an infamous nude centerfold for Cosmopolitan magazine that has been parodied many times throughout the decades. Now Deadpool is making the same pose, exposing his costume as the movie goes into production.
Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool, one of the longest awaited comic adaptations in recent memory, and as Collider tells us, the movie will come out on February 12, 2016. (Reynolds is hoping the movie will be R rated as well.)
As we all know by now, the major studios have been revealing information on movies early, specifically to beat the geeks from leaking information, and there’s also an official synopsis as well:
“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 new 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.”
Sound cool? It’s now less than a year away from the theaters, and as Reynolds tweeted: “With great power comes great irresponsibility.”
