We’ve known for some time now that Deadpool would be part of the 20th Century Fox presentation at Comic-Con this Saturday, but now we know exactly who from the film will be appearing. In addition to the previously confirmed Ryan Reynolds, cast members Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Ed Skrein took to Twitter to announce their arrivals in fittingly cheeky fashion, along with a new image. I would also be surprised if director Tim Miller didn’t show up, and I’m certainly curious to hear what the VFX veteran has to say about his feature directing debut.
The Marvel Comics adaptation is poised to be the first hard-R rated comic book movie, as Fox admirably greenlit the film without watering down the content to hit the more lucrative PG-13 rating. Reynolds plays the titular character Wade Wilson, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary who is left with accelerated healing powers after a rogue experiment goes wrong. His terribly scarred face is subsequently covered up by a red mask.
Check out the series of Tweets, along with the image, below, and check back here on Collider Saturday for our full recap of the Comic-Con panel. Deadpool opens in theaters on February 12, 2016.
