Deadpool ‘Prototype’ Mask Unveiled

deadpoolIn news that strikes me more as a threat than a promise of things to come, Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter today to give fans a peek at his costume for the upcoming Deadpool movie.

The photo he posted was tinted, but the mask appears to be pretty close to the Marvel comic book version.

Ryan Tweeted:

Sepia tone disguises the fact the mask is ballerina pink. It’s early. 365 sleeps early. #deadpool #prototypes

Ryan also refers to the fact that the film is one year away from release. Remember, though — Deadpool is a 20th Century Fox property, not a Marvel Studios production.

Who could forget Reynolds’ portrayal of… well, some version of Deadpool from 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Or his portrayal of… some version of Green Lantern?

No matter how hard we’ve tried.
