Here are few pieces of early concept art that were created for Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool. These were done by conceptual artist Andrew Leung before Tim Miller was even on board to direct the project. This is a note from Leung that accompanied the art:
“I worked on an early pitch of Deadpool before a director was decided upon. It’s interesting to see what ended up carrying through and being used in the actual film.”
This key frame art visually brought to life an early draft of the script that was written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds. They include a scene from the epic freeway battle; Deadpool lying on a bed bleeding; Blind Al putting together some IKEA furniture while Deadpool is sitting down holding a TV remote in his little baby hand; and one in which Wade Wilson meets Vanessa for the first time in the bar.
