Ryan Reynolds shares ‘how Deadpool spent Halloween’ video – watch

Deadpool tries to mobilise a crew of kids dressed as 'X-Men' characters, but doesn't fully succeed

After posting a photo over the weekend suggesting he went trick-or-treating as his Marvel character, Ryan Reynolds has shared a video revealing “how Deadpool spent Halloween”.

The tongue-in-cheek video shows Reynolds’ Deadpool attempting to marshal a crew of kids dressed as fellow X-Men characters – with somewhat disappointing results. Check it out below.

The long-awaited Deadpool movie is set to arrive in cinemas on February 12, 2016. Reynolds is flanked by a supporting cast that includes Haywire‘s Gina Carano, former Homeland actress Morena Baccarin and Silicon Valley star TJ Miller.

Visual effects specialist Tim Miller, whose CV includes creating the opening sequence for 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, makes his directorial debut from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the creators of US hoax-based comedy series The Joe Schmo Show. Miller began filming in late March in Vancouver, Canada, and Reynolds tweeted in late May that the shoot had wrapped.

The film’s official plot synopsis teases: “Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humour, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”
