Despite not being due out until February 2016, the filming for the highly anticipated Deadpool has wrapped over at 20th Century Fox. The R-rated comic book adaptation of the iconic Marvel character has seen a very enthuastic response since it’s announcement and now fans will just have to suffer through the long wait.
Ryan Reynolds who will be portraying the titular Merc With A Mouth, took to Twitter to announce the films wrap in what many feel may have been a casting where he fits it just as well as fans feel Hugh Jackman fits his role as Wolverine in the Marvel universe. Here’s what he had to say along with an image;
“#Deadpool has been a privilege to make. And we got to make this film because of you. Gonna eat a samich now. #wrapped “
Ryan Reynolds is not the only big actor to sign onto the movie, Gina Carano is set to play Angel Dust, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. Colossus is also scheduled to make an appearance, but no word on the actor playing the role just yet. Reynolds has also previously expressed interest in Hugh Jackman appearing as Wolverine as a cameo, but no word if that is/has actually happened. Fans now will just have to wait until we get to see an awesome trailer which will likely debut during San Diego Comic Con which is right around the corner.
Deadpool is set to release in theaters on February 12th, 2016.
