Ryan Reynolds is back in prosthetics as Deadpool!

The actor, 47, was seen wearing the characters' famous scarred face on the set of Deadpool 3 on Jan. 22. as he was joined by costar Hugh Jackman for the final days of filming the hotly-anticipated movie, set for release this summer.

Reynolds also sported Deadpool's red costume for the event while Jackman, 55, wore Wolverine's yellow suit on location in the south of England.

Deadpool's facial scarring is the result of an experimental cancer treatment undertaken by Reynold's character Wade Wilson in the first movie of the franchise. The dangerous and painful treatment unlocked his superhero powers but also left him scarred from head-to-toe.

Reynolds and Jackman wrapped Deadpool 3 — which is slated for release on July 26 — last week.

To commemorate the experience, Reynolds posted a cheeky close-up photo of his crotch in his Deadpool costume on Instagram as he shared an emotional message.

“The suit hides blood. Also sweat… But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it’s mostly tears,” the actor wrote in the caption at the time. “A giant and forever thanks to the cast and crew of our film who battled wind, rain, strikes and @thehughjackman… all under the stalwart leadership of @slevydirect.”

“I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn’t happen very often. See ya July 26th… ⚔️🥺⚔️,” Reynolds concluded.

Jackman, meanwhile, posted a heartfelt message as he shared a photo of himself having Wolverine's trademark sideburns shaved off as he sat in a dressing room.

“What a ride! I’ve loved every minute of making this movie. Well … not the 4a training or the steamed fish and veg 4 x a day for 6 months but the other 93.2%,” the actor wrote in the caption.

“A collective thank you to the entire cast and crew. You are all aces! If you’re reading this and think I mean you, I do. To two of my best mates @vancityreynolds and @slevydirect I literally couldn’t have done this without you. LITERALLY! July 26th can’t come soon enough. Time to shave.”
