It’s a Trick or Treater team-up in a new Deadpool Halloween video shared by Ryan Reynolds!
When Ryan Reynolds completed filming on the upcoming X-Men movies spin-off, Deadpool, he famously kept the Merc with a Mouth’s costume. Now, in a new Deadpool Halloween video, Reynolds is putting that costume to good use, teaming up with some Trick or Treaters dressed as a variety of X-Men characters. Check out the video, just released online by Reynolds, in the player below!
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 T.J. 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. Reynolds has also expressed a desire that Hugh Jackman might cameo as Wolverine, though it remains unconfirmed as to whether or not he will actually appear.
Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Confirmed to be rated R, Deadpool is scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
