With a release date of Feb. 12, Deadpool is months away from hitting the theaters. But we crave more about the Merc With a Mouth. For those who want a look at the mad world of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox has released some photos ... 

... Officially.

Fox is still reeling from the unofficial release of the Deadpool trailer, which dropped at San Diego Comic-Con; despite Fox’s
plea to keep this footage locked down
, it appeared on YouTube as fast as the speed of gossip. 

Star Ryan Reynolds, who plays the off-the-wall and off-the-chain superhero Deadpool (aka Wade Wilson), promises the official trailer will be released soon. Until then, we get to enjoy these stills.

We’re particularly fond of the one of Morena Baccarin, who plays Vanessa, Wilson’s girlfriend ... and an ex-prostitute mutant shapeshifter. We never pictured Baccarin as Vanessa, but after her time on Firefly, Stargate SG-1 and now on Gotham, we’re looking forward to seeing her shift into this role.
