Ryan Reynolds Shares New NSFW Deadpool Message, Photo for Mother’s Day

Not quite the heartfelt message we’ve come to expect on Mother’s Day. On Sunday, May 10, Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to post a new image of his antihero character Deadpool. 

In the shot, Deadpool is holding a newborn baby in one hand and has a thumbs up in the other. Next to him is a doctor and a woman with her legs up who had just given birth.

“#Deadpool: A motherf—er since 1991. #happymamasday,” Reynolds, 38, captioned the image.

The sassy Marvel character was first created in 1991 as a super villain, but he since evolved into an antihero. Reynolds (a new dad in real life to daughter James, 4 months) is set to play the back-talking fighter in the new film, which has a February 2016 release date. 

This is the second time Blake Lively’s husband is trying his hand at playing a comic book hero. In 2011, he starred as the Green Lantern alongside his future bride in the panned film.
