[[wysiwyg_imageupload:374:]]At the recent Arizona Comic Con, Rob Liefeld, creator of Deadpool, coyly mentioned something about 8 minutes of R-Rated footage from the Deadpool movie.
“They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and that’s Deadpool in costume. Katana swords, guns, shooting people’s faces off and making me laugh. And I may or may not have seen something that looks just like that. And you’ve got what would amount to the first R Rated X-Men movie. Because that script is R Rated.”
“They may or may not have wanted to shoot eight minutes to see how it would play. And all I can tell you, it’s close. It’s closer that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make a R Rated Deadpool movie.”
Fox owns the rights to the Deadpool movie, with Ryan Reynolds reportedly set to reprise his role first scene in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as the Merc With The Mouth. I believe it is not known how much of the new Deadpool movie will reference Origins, if at all. At one time the movie was going to be titled X-Men Origins: Deadpool, but I think that is still up in the air as well.
