One of the most surprising news stories of the past week had to be the fact Fox finally greenlit a Deadpool movie. The film had been in development for years. Director Tim Miller was attached, a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had been floating around the internet for years, and rumors swirled of test footage shot with star Ryan Reynolds. Finally, that footage leaked, showing a confident, vulgar Deadpool joyfully killing a group of men driving in an SUV. The tone of the comic was there, and yet one thought the film would happen.
Still, the leaked footage rekindled the buzz on the film and Fox is now eyeing a February 12, 2016 release date for Deadpool. It all begs the question, “How and why did this happen now?” One source says it’s because everyone figured out a way to make the decidedly R-rated character PG-13.

The biggest leak of the last week might not be the pre-release torrent of The Expendables 3, but the bootleg of Deadpool test footage. Shot years ago, this short sequence features Ryan Reynolds in digital costume as the “merc with a mouth.” He cracks a few jokes, then cracks a few heads, before decaptiating a bad guy and waving hello to Tom Rothman, who at the time was head of Fox’s movie division.
We haven’t posted the footage because it still hasn’t been officially released. I’m sure you saw it anyway (that’s a screenshot, above), and now you can see Ryan Reynolds on set, in “costume” in a Deadpool test behind the scenes shot. Read More »
