“Deadpool” lead actor Ryan Reynolds confirms that filming has wrapped.
The star took to his Twitter to announce the news, thanking loyal fans who have played a role in getting the film greenlit.
Now that filming has concluded, many are looking forward to the movie’s first theatrical trailer.
Tim Miller, a known visual effects artist in the industry, will be hard at work on his debut film’s post-production and might take a while putting the finishing touches on it.
“Deadpool” has come a long way from being scrapped back in 2009.
When the character made his debut in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in 2009, Twentieth Century Fox planned on giving the anti-hero his solo outing.
But studio executives lost faith in the project when “Wolverine” failed to perform at the box office, even more so when the entire “Deadpool” script got leaked online.
Reynolds’ co-stars include Morena Baccarin, T.J.
Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand and Ed Skrein.
Fox finally greenlit the project early this year with the help of loyal fans and Reynolds’ passion to get “the merc with the mouth” back on the big screen.
