Ahead of Comic Con next weekend, 20th Century Fox has released a new still from its film adaptation of the Marvel comics hero “Deadpool” featuring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth.
EW premiered the still and an accompanying article in which producer Simon Kinberg spoke about the film’s tone: “Deadpool is a hard R. It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.”
Director Tim Miller adds: “I felt Fight Club and Tyler Durden were good corollaries. We are in strip clubs and dive bars and crappy apartments and far away from the shiny X-Men world.”
The film itself is slated to open February 12th next year.
