Emotions are running high in the lead up to the first official footage of Deadpool, with fans struggling to contain their enthusiasm for the Merc with a (dirty) Mouth. But it all got a bit too much for Ryan Reynolds, who broke down in tears when he first saw the suit he'd be wearing:
There was a lot of work with very little time. Fox gave us the green light and we had to be on camera in twelve weeks. That’s no time for prep. So we kept fighting and fighting to make tweaks to the suit. Like when the deadline has passed and we were still going back and forth.
But it turns out all that hard work was worth it in the end.
But the struggle was worth it. He added, "When we finally saw that suit, fully done, finished and completed…both [director] Tim Miller and I wept. I’m not even exaggerating, we wept in Simi Valley, California, in some warehouse where some guy makes all these crazy suits and had this one under a spotlight. We walked in and we wept. Tears coming down our cheeks. It felt so good.
Stop it Ryan, you're gonna set my ducts off too...
Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016.
