A Lucky Leak

After the lukewarm reaction to X-Men Origins Wolverine, and to Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern, a Reynolds fronted Deadpool movie seemed like it would never happen, right up until some some enterprising soul leaked test footage created by director Tim Miller to sell a Deadpool movie.

The mostly CGI footage, created using Reynold’s motion capture performance and voice, hadn’t persuaded studio executives to pay for a Deadpool movie, but the hugely positive on-line reaction to the footage did.

While the test footage paved the way for the film to be made, it did seemed so packed full of quips and gags, that it seemed that a full movie alike this would get very wearing, very fast.

Thankfully similar footage from the first trailer (below) seems much better paced and shows a version of the Merc’ with a mouth that fans can finally be happy with.
