IESB reports that the recent Vancouver reshoots on “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” will focus on one particular character – Deadpool.
Ryan Reynolds plays the Canadian mercenary who was set to originally only cameo in the project. Now it seems that role has been expanded into full-fledged supporting player with “most of the footage shot including Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.”
In the comics, the character is also a part of the Weapon X program who acquires regenerative abilities derived from Wolverine himself. In the comics that operation leaves him disfigured and mentally unstable, resorting to him wearing a mask.
Publicity photos of Reynolds as the character however don’t show any such mask or disfigurement though it’s expected to be depicted in some way in the final film.
