Although Fox’s Deadpool isn’t due out until 2016, actor Ryan Reynolds couldn’t wait… so he offered a sneak peek to fans.
Via Twitter, he gave his followers a first glimpse at his Deadpool mask. In it, we see a protoype of the Marvel character’s mask and gloves.
“Sepia tone disguises the fact the mask is ballerina pink. It’s early. 365 sleeps early. #deadpool #prototypes,” Reynolds tweeted. The 365 sleeps is a reference to the fact that the film is due out in exactly one year’s time.

Reynolds first played the X-Men-related character, referred to as Deadpool, in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The costume we see from Reynolds seems to be exactly as the character is known in comics.
Production for Deadpool is slated to start soon, under the direction of Tim Miller.
