The long-awaited Deadpool film is less than one year from hitting the big screen, so it was only a matter of time before we got our first look at the Deadpool costume Ryan Reynolds will wear when playing the popular anti-hero. The first official photo of the costume has now been revealed, and instead of debuting in overly epic fashion, the reveal stays true to Deadpool's humorous form, as the photo shows the Merc with a Mouth sprawled centerfold-style on a mock bear skin rug (Reynolds assures fans that no bears were harmed) in front of a fireplace (a pose reminiscent of a certain Burt Reynolds photo from the early 1970s).

Ryan Reynolds tweeted the first look at the Deadpool costume earlier today. The feature directorial debut of visual effects wizard Tim Miller from a script by a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick, the Deadpool movie is slated to come out on February 12th, 2016, and is currently filming in Vancouver. In addition to Reynolds as Deadpool, the film stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates.

Official synopsis (via Collider): "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 humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life."
