Some new pics from director Tim Miller’s upcoming comic-book movie Deadpool -- starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc With a Mouth -- have been released by 20th Century Fox.

Two new images show everyone's favorite potty-mouthed antihero Wade Wilson about to go under the knife of the movie’s dead-serious-looking villain, Ajax (Ed Skrein), while Angel Dust (Gina Carano) looks on. The second pic is a behind-the-scenes look at Reynolds in costume, chatting with Miller while filming on the Vancouver set. There are a couple more pics included in the gallery below, just in case you haven't seen them floating around the web yet. Anyway, it's all good stuff.

The upcoming R-rated superhero film will break the fourth wall (thank you!) and finally feature the irreverent character created by Rob Liefeld as he was actually meant to be. Which is NOT what we saw in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Here's a short synopsis for the movie:

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.

The movie also stars T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Andre Tricoteux as Piotr Rasputin/Colossus and Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle/Copycat.

Deadpool will open in movie theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
