Actor Ryan Reynolds revealed his official “Deadpool” get-up to fans via Twitter on Friday, with a dose of the Marvel character’s trademark wisecracking attitude.

Clad head-to-toe in red and black, the star is seen laying supine on a fur and lit by a roaring hearth. “No bears were harmed in the making of this photo. Though many bears likely turned on,” Reynolds tweeted. 

The photo serves as a reminder that 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool,” set for release on  Feb. 12, 2016, strays far from the path tread by superhero blockbusters to date.

The film is based on the Marvel character Wade Winston Wilson, known for a tendency to break the fourth wall and speak directly to comic book readers. The antihero, first portrayed by Reynolds in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” boasts a wicked wit, but cradles a questionable sense of morality that Reynolds hopes won’t lose viewers.

“With Deadpool, it’s a lot like going to prison for the first day,” Reynolds said in a 2010 interview with Hero Complex.

“You got to walk up and hit the biggest guy you see to establish a bit of cred. With Deadpool, early on you have to establish that moral flexibility. There’s a gamble to it — you’re going to lose a few people right at the beginning but you take the gamble and know that eventually you’re going to win them back …”

“Deadpool” is directed by Tim Miller, with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner producing.
