Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Directed by Tim Miller, the film tells the origin story of the titular foul-mouthed assassin. Ryan Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary who is left with accelerated healing powers after a rogue experiment goes wrong. The iconic red mask subsequently covers up his terribly scarred face, but sense of humor is unscathed as he cheerily goes out for revenge. Deadpool also stars Morena Baccarin (Homeland & Firefly), T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley), Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones), Brianna Hildebrand (Prism), and Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6).
