Hitting comic shops today, “Deadpool” #250 is being touted to feature the death of Marvel’s “Merc with a Mouth.” Reports of Wade Wilson’s death have apparently been greatly exaggerated, however, as Deadpool himself can be seen checking out the new issue in an image shared by none other than Ryan Reynolds, star of the upcoming Deadpool feature film. Check out the full shot in the gallery below!
“Smells like someone died up in here,” says Reynolds, adding the hashtag, “#alivepool“
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, 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 humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Reynolds stars as the title character alongside TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character.
