As an avid Deadpool fan, every new tidbit of information I can glean from teaser trailers, press releases, and leaked images is thrilling, but one of the things I’m most excited about is already public record: the costume. Anyone who has read the comics or watched the various animations Deadpool’s been in knows that his mask is more reflective of his personality than his actual face, and seeing such a faithful adaptation come to life is awesome.
Not only is Ryan Reynolds’ costume in the upcoming film just as colorful and exciting as the comic version, it has all of the details fans are sure to look for, right down to the excessive number of pouches. The actor himself is also a fan, saying in an interview with Screen Junkies, “I love having the tactile, real deal, all the time.”
This costumes is indeed the “real deal.” From the tip of his boots to the top of his iconic mask, Deadpool is coming to life right before his fans’ eyes, and it is insanely cool to watch. Brad Reifler feels that time will tell whether this version does the character justice, but I for one am looking forward to a movie that exceeds all expectations.
