Ryan Reynolds has revealed he and director Tim Miller "wept" when they saw his 'Deadpool' suit for the first time

Ryan Reynolds "wept" when he saw his 'Deadpool' suit for the first time.

The 38-year-old star has admitted it was hard work to create the tight-fitting garment in the time restraints but insists he is incredibly proud of the final result.

He said: "Boy, we had to fight to get the suit to where it is now. There was a lot of work with very little time. Fox gave us the green light and we had to be on camera in 12 weeks. That's no time for prep.

"So we kept fighting and fighting to make tweaks to the suit. Like when the deadline has passed and we were still going back and forth."

Ryan added to ComicBook.com: "When we finally saw that suit, fully done, finished and completed ... both [director] Tim Miller and I wept.

"I'm not even exaggerating: We wept in Simi Valley, California, in some warehouse where some guy makes all these crazy suits and had this one under a spotlight. We walked in and we wept. Tears coming down our cheeks. It felt so good."

Meanwhile, Ryan previously revealed it took him 45 minutes to get the superhero suit on at first.

He shared: "It wasn't easy [to put on]. When it started it would take up to 45 minutes but in the end I had that thing down to 10 minutes.

"I'm really just wearing like a unitard. Nothing too romantic I'm afraid. But that thing is hot, man. That thing is tight."

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.
