Test footage for a solo "Deadpool" movie has appeared online, featuring the fully-masked hero apparently voiced by Ryan Reynolds who played the character in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". The CGI video shows a mix of action and comedy as the swordman taking down bad guys.
It starts with Deadpool singing a song before looking at the camera and greeting the viewers, "Oh, hello there. I bet you're wondering. Why the red suit? Well, that's so bad guys can't see me bleed." What follows next is an action scene inside a car with a bit of gunplay involved.
The project has been in development hell for a long time. Director Tim Miller and Reynolds said last year that the movie was close to getting greenlight. Meanwhile, Lauren Shuler Donner said earlier this year they were still deciding whether to make an R-rated film on shoestring budget or "push the boundaries of PG-13."
