Deadpool has been unleashed on the world and is proceeding to conquer it in the only way he knows. Swords, Guns, Beheading & Expletives. But we wouldn’t be at this point without THAT test footage leaking!
The question of who leaked that footage still remains, but the man who has helped spearhead the Merc with a Mouth’s arrival on the silver screen says it wasn’t him… Sort of, maybe, kind of!
Ryan Reynolds discussed the topic on the Jimmy Kimmel show this week where he explains that he is almost sure it wasn’t him who leaked the footage around the time of the 2014 San Diego Comic Con. If you remember the test footage, it came out to ravenous plaudits from fans everywhere and was what pushed Fox into greenlighting the Deadpool movie after 11 long years. If you have seen Deadpool already, you’ll know that the footage has made it into the movie and even the trailers almost unscathed.
“I know that one of us did it. There’s four of us: me, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Tim Miller the director. We all said at the beginning that someone should leak it, so the idea was planted, but I’m 70 percent sure it wasn’t me.”
No matter which of these four wonderful people pressed the upload button on that test footage, or all of them, or a combination of the four, we are so glad that they did. They could have gotten in a world of trouble, but they knew that they had a nuclear powered phenomenon on their hands and it just had to be let loose to the world. Thanks to Ryan Reynolds, Tim Miller, Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick we have the Deadpool movie that Deadpool fans have always dreamed of. Thanks to the foursome, we can look forward to an X-Men Universe where the fourth wall breaking definition of an anti-hero can roam free and cause mischief, mayhem & death wherever he goes.
