A number of websites have now posted the details of their visits to the set of Fox’s X-Men spinoff, Deadpool, and a couple of new stills from the movie have been released along with ’em.
Usually by the time these set visits come out, a lot of the information is already old, and there’s also quite a bit of crossover and reputation between the sites – but in this instance Collider has managed to get some pretty interesting new stuff from director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds.
The pair talk in detail about the leaked test footage that led to the movie being greenlit, the breaking of the fourth wall, the animated costume, and much more. Reynolds also discusses what drew him to the character, and why he was so determined to bring Wade Wilson to the big screen in all his “hyper violent” glory.
Well, every comic book movie I go to nobody f*cking dies! I mean, like, everybody’s getting shot at, it’s like an episode of The A-Team, y’know, everyone’s shooting the ground- so, we get an opportunity to do this in a way that follows all the scripture that Deadpool’s laid out, which is fourth-wall breaking, that kind of mercenary sensibility and humor and then we also have this opportunity, which is very rare in this world, to do something that’s not necessarily for just kids. There’s some pretty racy, pretty hyper-violent things that happen in this movie and it’s been a lot of fun to shoot.
It’s clear that, at the very least, this is going to be a pretty unique comic book movie, and one that will for sure have people talking. For more on the film, you can read Collider’s full report at the link below.
Also starring Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, and Brianna Hildebrand, Deadpool is scheduled to open in theaters on February 12, 2016.
