Dead-end?....A Leak That Caused a Pool
Ryan Reynolds spent a lot of time trying to make the Deadpool movie a reality, 11 years in fact! Talk about dedication to your project!
Film fans helped in getting the script off the ground, having sat on a shelf for 6 years the script was leaked online and those who read it went crazy for the movie to be created.
As a result of the public outcry for something to be done, the studio sat up and listened and granting a small budget for test footage to be made – the test footage also sat on the shelf…for a further four years!
Luckily the footage was “accidentally” leaked online, the list of possible culprits is quite a short one, but Reynolds claims he is 70 percent sure it wasn’t him!
Fox had to listen when fans went nuts for the released footage and gave the Deadpool project the green-light.
With Deadpool pulling in over $783 million worldwide with its 2016 release and Deadpool 2 a further $778.9 million in 2018, no doubt Fox is willing to forgive whoever leaked the footage!
Who is This Deadpool?
Deadpool, whose real name is Wade Wilson, was given super healing powers as a result of the Weapon X experiment!
The Weapon X project turns unwilling participants into weapons, often capturing mutants for their experiments but also using baseline humans – including our trigger-happy friend, Wade Wilson.
Wade was diagnosed with cancer at the time of his Weapon X experience and his cancerous cells regenerate just as quickly as his normal cells. The result was that Wade's entire body was left scarred – resulting in the use of that pretty red suit!
Deadpool is a Mercenary trained in Martial Arts and is a skilled Swordsman, who has a goofy personality and a love for violence!
