A lot of set photos from Deadpool found their way online earlier this year, but almost all of them were taken on the same stretch of highway in Canada. There were so many images from that location, in fact, that some fans started wondering if the fairly low budgeted R-Rated movie was going to be set almost entirely in the one place (though the truth was, of course, that a fairly elaborate action sequence was being shot).
Regardless, a new batch of photos have surfaced today which put the Merc with the Mouth in a very different kind of locale. These are actually from recent reshoots, a normal practice for any big movie, and while they don’t reveal too much about the plot, it’s still very cool to see Ryan Reynolds back in action as Deadpool.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional (and popular) anti-heroes, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), 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 humour, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and set to be released on February 12th, 2016.
