Ryan Reynolds has become hands down the undisputed heavyweight champion of heralding a role in an upcoming movie. The Deadpool star shared a Halloween pic of him decked out in his full movie costume posing with a half pint team of X-Men. We now have video to really set the scene from that priceless costume team-up.
As it turns out, the Reynolds’ memorable Twitter pic was far from a random Halloween run-in. The video skit shows him playing it up in character as Marvel’s Merc With a Mouth while recruiting a team of young Mutants. We don’t get trick-or-treating, but we do get a lot of Reynolds cracking jokes, cursing, distributing weapons and taking pot shots at Green Lantern.
