AceShowbiz - "Deadpool" apparently reshoots test footage that leaked last summer. In a video and some pictures taken from the filming location at a Vancouver bridge, the mercenary armed with guns and swords is seen filming an action scene that involves a car crash.
The footage, when it leaked last year, helped the long-delayed movie earn a lot of buzz and eventually get a green light. It starts with the motor-mouthed hero singing to Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl before crashing through the sunroof of a car. He eliminates the driver and passengers one by one in an increasingly violent manner mixed with a slapstick comedy.
"Deadpool" tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
