Ryan Reynolds Announces Deadpool Has Wrapped Filming


Ryan Reynolds has announced that production on Deadpool has wrapped.

Filming on the long awaiting film began earlier this year in Vancouver, after fan reaction to leaked test footage moved 20th Century Fox to rescue the project from development hell. The film is now scheduled for release on February 12.

The next entry into Fox's X-Men film universe, Deadpool will tell the popular character's origin story. Armed with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor, former mercenary Wade Wilson (Reynolds) goes in search of the man who nearly destroyed his life.

In addition to Reynolds, the film also stars Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Ed Skrein as Ajax, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, and T.J. Miller as Weasel.


Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller, from a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on the Marvel Comics character created by Fabian Nicieza and Robert Liefeld.
