EXCLUSIVE Behind-The-Scenes Deadpool/Weapon XI Make-Up FX For X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

<font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font> Behind-The-Scenes Deadpool/Weapon XI Make-Up FX For X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

Amalgamated Dynamics Incorporated has sent over four never-before-seen high-resolution images of actor Ryan Reynolds ("Green Lantern") being transformed into Weapon XI/Deadpool for Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Creative licenses were certainly taken with fan-favorite, Deadpool/Wade Wilson, in Hugh Jackman and Gavin Hood's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Producers were expecting backlash from comic book purists, but hoped the general audience would embrace their changes. In the beginning of the film Wade Wilson, the Merc with a Mouth, was played by Ryan Reynolds ("Safe House"), but when we later see Wade, he has transformed into the final antagonist, Weapon XI/Deadpool. That version looks almost unrecognizable, having undergone multiple surgical enhancements/experiments by the sinister Colonel William Stryker (Danny Huston).

StudioADI was kind enough to send us these exclusive close-up images that reveal all of the minute details that went into the make-up effects for Weapon XI/Deadpool. Underneath all of those gnarly Weapon XI prosthetics is Ryan Reynolds, but many of the action scenes were performed by stunt double/martial arts expert, Scott Adkins.

i learned early to put my fanboy gripes aside and enjoy the movie version of a comic book, but deadpool in origins filled me with "wtf" rage

So painfully bad!!!!!! MY EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
spidey1994 - 12/20/2012, 8:25 AM
That's Ryan Reynolds not Scott Adkins.

@Jollem - same here, man.

I agree with Jollem and Fogs, Deadpool was shitty.

lol sometimes is better just keep it simple, with the healing factor and teleportation would be enough, Why the hell did the put the beam vision?

Even if you took Deadpool completely out of the equation, this movie still sucked harder than a hooker with a Dyson.
MyInnerDork - 12/20/2012, 8:55 AM
Technically this is not an exclusive since the source link is a YouTube page that anyone can access. Just sayin'.

It's so bad i just don't know how to properly express myself

BlueMex - 12/20/2012, 9:00 AM
hahah i remember the day everybody was fighting if this was actually ryan reynolds or Scott Adkins!
MrDonut - 12/20/2012, 9:02 AM
I loved how when mouth-less-Deadpool was introduced it was blatantly obvious it wasn't Reynold's apart from the extreme close-up's of him 'smiling'... I swear this was such a shit movie... It could've been redemption from 'The Last Stand' and been 'The Dark Knight' for X-Men, but managed to surpass the level of shitness Fox had set records for in the first place... Right now the only FoX-Men movies that have my interest are a continuation of 'First Class'... I'm a big Wolverine fan but the fact they've [frick]ed him up from start to finish has just made me not give a shit if he never makes an appearance again...
TopCat89 - 12/20/2012, 9:04 AM
Dear god, how i HATE Lauren Shuler Donner (producer).....her description of Deadpool in the video just annoyed me more. I remember on a bonus feature for one of the X-men films, she said she "Never even read an X-men comic".....yet she has power over these movies! GIVE IT BACK TO MARVEL
TheNightmareVirus - 12/20/2012, 9:04 AM
@BlueMex, in these particular images this is Ryan Reynolds. Not Adkins. Adkins was used for the non-close up scenes.
AC1 - 12/20/2012, 9:07 AM
This isn't Deadpool.
TopCat89 - 12/20/2012, 9:07 AM
Gavin Hood at the end made me laugh/cry "we took Deadpool....and gave you a different version from the comics...GOOD, i hope we surprised you a little!"

You sure did.....Tit
supermarioworldE - 12/20/2012, 9:07 AM
They need to get this Deadpool movie done already so I can erase the memory of origins from my brain.

What a piece of crap.
LEEE777 - 12/20/2012, 9:26 AM
Its like a dagger in the chest!

Made a good Mortal Kombat movie though :p

Ghaleonausa - 12/20/2012, 9:43 AM

I hate how when Fox takes massive creative license they always put on their happy face and pretend they had our best interests at heart. You can always see in their eyes how much they really hate us.
AC1 - 12/20/2012, 10:24 AM
Origins, snorigins. Why all the X-Men Origins news today? The stuff about Blob and Barackapoo? Shouldn't we be focusing on The Wolverine and the chances it has at making up for Wolverine's past lackluster outings, rather than reminding us of their past mistakes?
DCjohnny - 12/20/2012, 10:31 AM
deadpool is the only comic that I read from marvel universe... I hope they make the movie or at least animated movie right now any thing will do... I am also pretty excited for the deadpool video game...

2- Fantastic 4 - 2
3 - X3
4 - Origins

Viking - 12/20/2012, 11:33 AM
Take it easy you nerds, it's just a [frick]ing movie. Don't get all butt hurt, don't get all tight up in the asshole =D
Nivekian - 12/20/2012, 2:04 PM
Stupid Hollywood production people think they can improve comic book character design templates, and keep getting proven wrong.
DC4everLantern - 12/20/2012, 2:11 PM
Worst and most Ugly Villain in History. Look at BANE. So you menaged making a good villain with mask.
papadac - 12/20/2012, 3:01 PM
I actually enjoyed 90% of this film, including Reynolds as Wade in the beginning, but their treatment of Deadpool at the end was an abomination and most of the other mutants in the movie were a waste.
avengersleagueofjusticeforamerica - 12/20/2012, 3:09 PM
I still can't believe this movie happened
ThatOneDude - 12/20/2012, 3:09 PM
Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson as Deadpool and Wolvie's berserker right after he comes outta the tub are the only 2 watchable parts in the whole damn movie... The rest is shit
Funsize - 12/20/2012, 4:13 PM
Deadpool is such a great character and deserves better than this.
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 12/20/2012, 8:51 PM
what a horrendous movie, but more horrendous is what they did with deadpool.

like within the 3 years it took to make that movie and hundreds of people not one person had the balls to say displaying deadpool like this is a bad idea????

I mean, even if you have no idea who the [frick] deadpool was in the first place....
a villain who can't talk, or show emotion, just stupid and i am usually a nice critic.
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 12/20/2012, 8:52 PM
gambit was ok... but even logans team at the beginning besides deadpool sucked.

the only thing they got right was casting live schreiber. PERFECT
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 12/20/2012, 8:53 PM
baraka is mortal kombat, not x men lol

this movie sucked!!!!
mgeoff88 - 12/20/2012, 11:01 PM
Ryan Reynolds was a great Wade Wilson. He could've been a great Deadpool too, if they didn't turn him into Barakapool.

One of his most popular aliases is "Merc with a Mouth", but Stryker has his mouth sealed...

Deadpool deserves much better than this.
Milling - 12/21/2012, 3:01 AM
The wade wilson version were okay. BUT YOU KILLED DEADPOOL!............
