By Muuka Muyumba

Simply listed as ‘Deadpool Movie Trailer’, a test trailer appears to have leaked online that gives us the first action sequence of a Deadpool movie. The character appear to be computer generated, but you can clearly hear Ryan Reynolds voice.

Deadpool (Wade Wilson) is a Marvel Comics character who is a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).

Wilson first appeared on screen in the ill-fated X-Men Origins: Wolverine, portrayed by Reynolds. He is a highly skilled, wisecracking but greatly amoral mercenary who wields a pair of katanas with superhuman speed and skill sufficient to deflect fully automatic weapons fire. He is supposedly killed by Victor Creed, but is later revealed to have been transformed by Colonel William Stryker into mutant killer “Weapon XI” (stunts performed by Scott Adkins) who possesses other mutants’ powers, including Scott Summers’ optic blasts, John Wraith’s teleportation, Wolverine’s healing factor, and a pair of extendable blades resembling Wilson’s prized swords; Stryker is able to completely control him thanks to Chris Bradley’s technopathy.

Deadpool appeared to die at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but a final end credit on a version of the movie showed that he was actually alive.

Although the movie made a mess of the character, Deadpool has been a subject of speculation for a big screen adaptation for years now. According to Liefeld, Deadpool will appear in a rumored X-Force movie. A spin-off of the X-Men film series starring Deadpool has been in development with Reynolds attached to reprise his role. According to Empire, a script is in development, and Deadpool will “break the fourth wall” during the film, according to the report. Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been attached to write the script for the film.[82] On April 8, 2011, VFX artist Tim Miller was hired to make his directing debut. Originally the film was set to be rated PG-13, but the rating was later reconsidered to an R-rating with the possible addition of gore. In October 2013, Reynolds and Miller said that the film is close to being green-lit.

No other details have come out, but I wonder whether Liefeld floated this video out because he claims to have seen early test footage of the VFX for a feature some time ago (the description if almost exactly the SAME!). This could also be a VFX test for a video game that has yet to be released.

Either way, this may be just as exciting as anything that came from WB/DC or Marvel this past weekend.
