The “Deadpool” actor is the latest Hollywood A-list celebrity to join the online photo-sharing social platform as Robert Downey Jr. has done the same by sharing a photo with his “Avengers: Age of Ultron” co-star last month.
There’s no doubt that Reynolds will be performing his own stunts in his upcoming movie because his first Instagram post is a set photo that showed his character in a death-defying landing scene.
The photo, which was released after Reynolds’ Mother’s Day tribute, came with the caption “Stuck the landing. With my mouth”. The actor who plays the Merc With The Mouth obviously wants the comic book fans to be excited of the R-rated film.
So far, Reynolds has accumulated over 35k followers on Instagram. The number of followers is expected to increase within the next 24 hours, considering the fact that he already amassed more than 330k followers on Twitter.
Based on a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the movie, which will be directed by Tim Miller, stars “Gotham” star Morena Baccarin as Vanessa a.k.a Copycat, “Fast & Furious 6” star Gina Carano as Angel Dust, TJ Miller as Deadpool’s sidekick Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, “Game of Thrones” star Ed Skrein as Ajax.
The official synopsis is as follows:
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.
The production is currently underway in Vancouver before its release on 12th Feb 2016.
