Read a page from the Deadpool script, complete with his notes

deadpool reading a note
Star Wars is dominating the headlines right now, but Marvel mutant Deadpool’s big-screen solo debut is still right around the corner and inching closer every day.

As part of its “12 Days of Deadpool” marketing campaign that will culminate with a new Deadpool trailer premiering on Christmas Day (December 25), 20th Century Fox has released a page from the script of the film, complete with notes from the mouthy mercenary himself.

Filled with scrawled jokes, obscene edits, and at least one drawing of a taco, the script page that debuted on movie blog JoBlo today is vintage Deadpool, complete with commentary that addresses both the film’s development and star Ryan Reynolds’ original on-screen debut as Wade Wilson in the much-maligned X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

“Tim, when are you going to admit that you leaked the test footage,” writes Deadpool in a note referencing the July 2014 clip directed by Tim Miller that was “leaked” online showcasing the intended tone of the film and featuring Reynolds’ providing a voiceover and motion-capture performance as the title character.

Directed by Miller from a script penned by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool casts Reynolds as former Special Forces operative Wade Wilson, who agrees to undergo a mysterious treatment that — in addition to giving him superhuman powers — will cure the terminal illness that’s expected to cut his life short any day now. The experiment goes awry, however, and Deadpool embarks on a mission to get revenge on the government agent who ruined his life.

Along with Reynolds, the film stars Brianna Hildebrand as the mutant Negasonic Teenage Warhead, actor/comedian T.J. Miller as Weasel, fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, and Ed Skrein as Ajax. X-Men mutant Colossus will also appear in the film, but he won’t be played by X-Men franchise actor Daniel Cudmore.

Deadpool is scheduled to hit theaters Feb. 12, 2016.
