There are plenty of signs that point toward Deadpool being far different from your average comic book movie.

For starters, it's likely to be rated R, as it should be. Star Ryan Reynolds seems really, really concerned that the movie get the character of Deadpool right this time around after the embarrassment that was the "merc with a mouth" in Wolverine: Origins. The film's marketing team is already doing a stellar job.

At the end of the day, we simply don't know if the Deadpool film will be able to bring the wit, action and humor that makes the character so popular in Marvel's comics. What we do know is this: that costume is spot on.

We've seen pictures of Reynolds in costume before, but this latest still from Entertainment Weekly (via Heroic Hollywood) just reinforces the fact that Deadpool's look in this film is almost 100 percent ripped straight from the source material. The dual guns. The straps. The swords. The utility belt with the "Deadpool" belt buckle. The mask.

Perhaps the only major differences are the color tones. In the comics, the red of Deadpool's suit looks a little brighter than it does here in this image, which overall has a darker tone. That's about par for the course when it comes to comic book adaptations these days. Bright colors (for whatever reason) are seen as a no-no, as these films try to create a gritty atmosphere. You only have to look at the color-drained costumes of Superman and Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to see the results.

It makes sense for a Deadpool film, however. Though the character is outrageously goofy, it will be an R-rated film with plenty of blood, guts and chimichangas. Deadpool's light-heartedness serves as a funny and occasionally disturbing contrast to the violence he dishes out.

The toned down color works, as we've seen in the Deadpool concept video that managed to help get the full movie made after it leaked online. If the entire movie is anything like that, comic fans and moviegoers alike are in for a treat.

Deadpool is slated for release on February 12, 2016.
