Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool


Ryan Reynolds is taking his role as Deadpool very seriously.

Blake Lively's husand tweeted a picture of himself clad in the black and red costume, but he isn't posing on a rug this time. Instead, he's sitting on the toilet...perhaps doing a No. 2?

"Smells like someone died up in here. #alivepool," he tweeted.

Although you can't really see his face in the pic, it does look like he feels a little bit intruded upon LOL. All the anti-hero wants to do is get in some light comic book reading and it seems the viewer is disturbing his peace! Reynolds has been sharing pics of the costume, chronicling it from the prototype stages until its completion, and he certainly has had some fun along the way.

Wearing the traditional red and black skintight outfit and mask seen on the popular Marvel character, the 38-year-old actor laid casually on a bearskin rug, with one arm propped behind his head, in front of a raging fireplace.

"With great power, comes great irresponsibility," he wrote, parodying a famous line from Spiderman. "#deadpool #officialsuit @deadpoolmovie."

The picture is a parody of a famous 1972 Cosmopolitan nude centerfold photo of another Reynolds—Burt Reynolds, which Ryan also tweeted. "No bears were harmed in the making of this photo," he added. "Though many bears likely turned on."

If you're unfamiliar with Reynolds' character, Deadpool is a wisecracking, neurotic mercenary "anti-hero" whose real name is Wade Wilson. He made his big-screen debut in the 2009 movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine but did not sport the red and black outfit. In that film, he is transformed into a mutant villain and given several superpowers.

Those superpowers seem to have translated into real life because the Woman in Gold actor revealed his magical biceps in another picture on Twitter. Posing with a young fan at the gym, Reynolds put on a serious gun show when his bulging biceps could hardly be contained. "This stud out-benched me in the gym Sunday. Nice meeting you Adley," the new dad, who welcomed his first child shortly before the New Year, captioned the pic.
