Bring me more Pop Rocks and Dr. Pepper internet, we’ve got leaked footage of Ryan Reynold’s controversial Deadpool movie.
The on again, off again film from Fox Studios has been the talk of the town since it was announced almost six years ago. Over the past couple of years, we’ve received concept art and teasing images of Reynolds in the suit, but nothing else.
Now, thanks to some employee at Fox who is undoubtedly on their way to being fired, we have a full minute and forty seconds of classic Deadpool one liners and intense action.
The clip starts off with Deadpool singing along to Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl before turning his masked face to address the audience directly.
WARNING: The following clip contains scenes of violence and coarse language. Viewer discretion is advised.
“Oh, hello there. I bet you’re wondering about the red suit. Well, that’s so the bad guys can’t see me bleed,” Reynolds jokes.
As all Deadpool fans know, one of the key facets to the character is constantly breaking the fourth wall. He’s the only comic book hero who’s aware he’s in a comic book, and the deranged, self deprecating humour he’s now known for, stems from this realization.
While the humour in the clip sounds like it could have been ripped out of a Daniel Way book, it also vividly reminds me of Jim Carey’s classic film, The Mask.
Reynold’s movements are overly animated, but not cartoonish or overbearing. It works for a hero like Deadpool, who is naturally outrageous and shocking.
The sad part is that while Fox focuses all their attention on the X-Men movies making them millions of dollars, there probably won’t be any attention on the R-rated Deadpool movie anytime soon.
