We’ve seen glimpses of the fight between Wade Wilson and Ajax in trailers for 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool.” Now, along with a new photo of the battle, stars Ryan Reynolds and Ed Skrein reveal a little bit about what went into filming the showdown.
Describing the fight’s action to Entertainment Weekly, Skrein said, “Ryan’s like Muhammad Ali, dancing around, whispering in my ear. And I’m George Foreman. Every blow is like a haymaker and I just want to take his head off.”
Reynolds’ insight is less about the fight itself and more “Ed got yoked for the movie,” Reynolds revealed. “I saw his arms and got pretty upset at myself for not working out harder,” he continued, though the other photo EW debuted indicates the star did a pretty good job of getting himself into fighting shape for the role.
Directed by Tim Miller, “Deadpool” stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan KapiÄiÄ‡, Leslie Uggams and Jed Rees. The film opens Feb. 12.
