Given that Ryan Reynolds is something of a heartthrob, the simple fact that the man behind Deadpool’s mask, Wade Wilson, is an ugly, hideously deformed bastard is sure to piss off Ryan Reynold’s stable of fangirls. In fact, Wilson is more physically akin to a zombie than anything else, so it’ll be interesting to see how they decide to depict him in the film itself. Luckily, thanks to Just Jared, we’re finally able to get a look at Reynolds as Wade Wilson without the Deadpool’s signature garb.
The scenes in the images were being shot in Vancouver, allegedly in a back alley behind a sketchy strip club, but there is little evidence showing what scenario Wilson is in. Still, it’s cool to finally be able to see Wade Wilson himself instead of Deadpool. If you look closely, you can also see that there is clearly some sort of makeup or prosthetic on his face, so it seems like they’re at least taking a shot at staying true to the character’s unfortunate origins.Check the images out below to see for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments section.
