EXCLUSIVE 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.
