(NEW YORK) -- The first faithful version of the R-rated comic book series Deadpool hits theaters Friday.

Ryan Reynolds Says He's "Always Related" to Foul-Mouthed, Violent Superhero, Deadpool

(NEW YORK) -- Deadpool, opening Friday, is the latest flick about a Marvel superhero to hit the big screen.  But unlike previous Marvel heroes you've seen, Deadpool doesn't play nice.  He's a foul-mouthed, uncensored and mentally unstable mercenary whose story is so edgy, it took years for a studio to agree to actually make a movie about him.  But despite his R-rated ways, Ryan Reynolds, who plays Wade Wilson/Deadpool, says he's never felt so close to a character before.
