Ryan Reynolds gave fans a very appropriate sneak peek at Deadpool last week, thanks to a tweet featuring everyone’s favorite anti-hero lounging “seductively” by a fireplace.
Known as “the Merc with a Mouth”, the anti-hero and sometimes-villain is a big hit in the Marvel universe, thanks to his dark sense of humour and killer wit. Reynolds originally played Deadpool back in 2009 for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and with the success of other Marvel titles, it’s obviously a good time to revisit the character for both the star and Fox, the studio behind the release.

Deadpool opens in theatres next February 12, 2016. The film is directed by first-time feature film director Tim Miller, and stars Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano.
Synopsis: 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.
