Deadpool Movie Recreates Leaked Test Footage [Video]

Deadpool Movie

New Deadpool photos have been released by Empire and Entertainment Weekly showing some very familiar settings from the leaked test footage. Director Tim Miller appears to be recreating the leaked test footage that was instrumental in earning Deadpool a green light from Twentieth Century Fox. In the original scene, Deadpool is hanging out on a bridge doing some coloring and rocking out to Gwen Stefani, and then accosts an SUV full of (presumed) bad guys with his usual blend of gore and humor. It seems that this scene was lifted – at least, in part – from the feature film script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

The test footage was very CGI-heavy and was created in-studio with Reynolds wearing a motion capture suit – quite different from this shoot, which is on location with either Reynolds or a stunt performer wearing a physical version of the costume. There are, however, motion capture dots around Deadpool’s eyes, which will allow them to be animated so that the “Merc with a Mouth” can be expressive even through his mask.

Deadpool opens in theaters February 12, 2016
