Deadpool movie shoot starts with Vancouver in March

deadpool movie shoot starts vancouver march test footage
Vancouver is quickly becoming a superhero mecca — at least as far as film production goes.

When the Deadpool movie was announced late last year it was expected that production would begin this spring, and now there’s some confirmation that the project is moving along on schedule. Global News reports that cameras will begin rolling on the film in March, with production set to happen in star Ryan Reynolds’ hometown city of Vancouver.

The city in British Columbia, Canada, has served as the filming location for many of the superhero movies produced by 20th Century Fox, including both of the earlier Fantastic Four films and three of the previous X-Men movies. Keeping with the Canadian theme, the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse is set to begin filming in Montreal in April, another city that has become a frequent host for Hollywood’s superhero movie projects.

Scheduled to hit theaters February 12, 2016, Deadpool has Reynolds reprising his role as the mouthy, mutant mercenary he first played in 2009’s X-Men: Origins – Wolverine. It’s unknown whether that film will even be acknowledged in Deadpool, as the movie’s treatment of that character in particular has been widely criticized by fans.

Set to be directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool is based on a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
