20th Century Fox is about to start production on Deadpool, Marvel Comics' famous "merc with a mouth," starring Ryan Reynolds in the title role.
If you've never read an issue of Deadpool comics, it's unlike anything else Marvel publishes. The character is basically psychotic, but he's an incredible efficient assassin who never stops talking. Constantly dropping witty remarks while he dispatches enemies, the comic is full of sight gags that are as unrealistic as they are awesome.
Reynolds has unveiled the first official image of himself in the Deadpool costume he'll wear in the movie via Twitter. Any fans who had lingering concerns about Fox's ability to do the character justice should be reassured by this appropriately over-the-top photo.
