Ryan Reynolds has celebrated the end of filming for Deadpool 3 with, what else, a crotch shot. Yes, you read that right.
Production shut down on the superhero sequel between July and November, due to the strikes, but about two months on from it starting up again, it's done.
Sharing a photo of the suit's lower half to Twitter/X today (January 24), Reynolds wrote: "The suit hides the blood. Also sweat... But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it's mostly tears.
"A giant and forever thanks to the cast and crew of our film who battled wind, rain, strikes and [Hugh Jackman]... all under the stalwart leadership of [director Shawn Levy].

"I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn't happen very often. See ya July 26th..."
July seems like a really fast time to turn around the film's post-production, but Levy explained that while the strikes were on, he managed to edit about half of it.
The film sees Hugh Jackman play Wolverine for the first time in years, following his previous 'retirement' of the character in 2017's Logan. There have also been reports that Jennifer Garner is back as Elektra and rumours that Sir Patrick Stewart will be back as Professor Charles Xavier.
Though Garner has tried to dismiss any rumours, Stewart has been a bit more tease-y about the possibility of it happening.
"It has come up. There's been a process," he said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
"But you know, the last two, three years have been so difficult, with both the labour problems and the health problems and COVID."
Logan saw both Wolverine and Xavier die, but the Deadpool films are far more concerned with meta-humour than X-Men movie canon. Plus, superheroes are known for brushing off death like it was an upset stomach following a dodgy prawn linguine.
So it looks like we'll just have to wait and see.
Deadpool 3 will be released in cinemas on July 26.
