“Sepia tone disguises the fact the mask is ballerina pink. It’s early. 365 sleeps early.”

Ryan Reynolds could just be kidding about the color, or referring to it having only base coats of dye so far, but official sources indicate this is the actual mask. And on one level, sure, it’s not a big deal in theory that a very simple comic design got copied.

Until you remember that last time Hollywood tried Deadpool.

It’s like they actively went out of their way to fuck it up. And people wonder why we like our movies true to the source material.
