Marvel’s Merc with the Mouth, Deadpool, got the big screen adaption his legions of fans yearned for since X-Men Origins: Wolverine fucked his shit up. Deadpool, which starred Ryan Reynolds, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, and directed by Tim Miller, has been available on Blu-ray and DVD for a few months now but its set photographer just uploaded a whopping 61 gorgeous images taken during the film’s production in 2015. Who knew Deadpool could look this bloody beautiful?
Joe Lederer is a renowned movie photographer with credits in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Chronicles of Riddick, and Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol. This week, Lederer posted gorgeous images he took from the set of Deadpool in an eclectic gallery that shows both the characters as well as behind-the-scenes. Some of the spontaneous candids of the cast between takes are just as gorgeous as the ones with Deadpool and Negasonic Teenage Warhead in full costume. I don’t think I’ve seen Stan Lee this happy before.
Some are also photoshopped, tinted, and angled in a way that don’t make Deadpool resemble the lurid, R-rated superhero romp that grossed more than $700 million worldwide in the cold dead month of February.
Check out some of the images below. The rest you can peep on Lederer’s official website. First, here’s a dope new angle from one of the film’s many publicity stills.
Next, a sick curb stomp against a henchman from the film’s violent opening scene in the highway.

And finally, a candid of Stan Lee, who didn’t create Deadpool but whom fans love to see in cameo appearances anyway.
Deadpool is available now on Blu-ray and DVD.
