Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as mercenary Wade Wilson, who is given superhuman healing powers after undergoing experimental treatment for a terminal illness. Adopting a distinctive suit, the disfigured, fast-talking anti-hero seeks violent revenge on the men responsible for his condition.

At a recent screening in London, co-star TJ Miller revealed that even though the movie had been given an R-rating, the home media version would feature even more graphic material. "The idea that when you see the fall director's cut of it, that that's going to be even more raw, that's pretty heavy duty," he said, viacinemablend.com.

The movie sits within Fox's X-Men universe. Reynolds played the character briefly in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, although this version is much closer to its comic book origins.

Deadpool is the directorial debut of visual effects artist Tim Miller. It also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano, and is released on February 12, 2016.

“Deadpool” is the cinematic equivalent of that kid in school who would always say how much he didn’t care what people thought of him, but just loud enough so everybody could hear him. It is the teenager who pretends to be too cool to care, but wants you to like him so badly it hurts. Of course, this is partially a byproduct of being a cog in the machine of the superhero movie marketing system, you unavoidably have to hit a few of the beats of the genre in order to satisfy the audience.
