Ryan Reynolds plays the title role opposite Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand. The movie was directed by Tim Miller and based on a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Wade Wilson, who in the movie takes on the identity of the antihero Deadpool, searches for the person who gave him mutant prowess and a physically damaged visage.
After an unorthodox marketing strategy, Deadpool was released in the US on February 12th, 2016. The movie was a commercial and critical triumph. It broke multiple records, including the highest-grossing 20th Century Fox X-Men movie of the year and the highest-grossing R-rated movie at the time, earning nearly $782 million on a $58 million budget to become the ninth-highest-grossing movie of 2016 and ranked ninth overall.
