Has Fox been shooting Deadpool on the sly?

01.15.2012

The last time we heard anything even half-way official on the long-gestating DEADPOOL project was way back in 2010 when Robert Rodriquez talked about possibly signing on to direct. We then speculated as to whether Ryan Reynolds would even have time to make DEADPOOL, what with GREEN LANTERN's sequel schedule and his commitment to R.I.P.D.

But now there are rumblings that something has been going on behind the scenes, so to speak. Original DEADPOOL artist Rob Liefeld recently spoke on a panel at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con, and amidst comic book talk and the like he was heard to say this little snippet of awesomeness:

"They've got a great director on the movie, they've got a great script. I may or may not have seen some sort of test footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and 'go holy crap 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 than it's ever been to going, or going 'Nahhh, that's too scary a proposition to make an R Rated Deadpool movie."

So there you have it. Sounds more like the man's gleefully trying to hide what he has seen so as not to get in trouble, rather than purposefully shrouding the truth in web upon web of mystery the way some people like to do.

Hopefully we'll hear more soon, now that there's actual footage floating around.

Reynolds IS Deadpool and this is one comic book film that I can't wait to see. Especially if it is rated R.

I'd pay $8

while im not the biggest ryan reynolds fan, i am a fan of them trying this. if what they say they want to do with it happens which is make an actual comic book LOOKING movie then im game. I want to see scott pilgrim type effects with this guy bouncing off the walls going ape $h!t.

AND if they are gonna test the waters of doing more R rated comic movies, I say try again with this, if THIS movie is good or bad will you really lose any sleep?

Yeah I'm not gonna believe anything they say about this film until I start to see pictures and trailers. I just don't see Fox taking the risk of making this a R rated tongue in cheek shoot em up. There's only so many die hard Deadpool fans in the world. They are going to have to rely on the "fanbase" of the Wolverine film to turn up to see this and that would require a PG 13 rating.

Secondly I really have zero confidence in Fox to pull this off right. I mean just look at how they raped the

Secondly I really have zero confidence in Fox to pull this off right. I mean just look at how they raped the character in Wolverine. You really think they are going to realize their mistake? It would really surprise me if Renolds wears the mask for more than 5 minutes. You really think they will cover up pretty boy Ryan's money making face the whole film? I would like to see this movie be badass but I just dont think it will be. But who knows Fox got their shit together and made First Class awesome (In all fairness even that movie doesn't even compare to the first two Singer films, it just happens to be better than the shitfests that were X3 and Wolverine)

Reynolds?

I love that people are backing Reynolds just as they did when he signed on to play Hal. I don't know when people will snap back to reality and realize Reynolds is a miserable, no acting ,worthless piece of shit and should stick to doing voice work in commercials.

This movie is destined to suck, just as Green Lantern was before filming even began.

Did Ryan Reynolds sleep with your girlfriend or something? Why so angry?

Apart from very few exception, I stopped caring what Ryan Reynolds does. Deadpool was perhaps the only good thing from Wolverine though.

Rob Liefeld does like to hear himself talk so I'd take what he says with a grain of salt. Regardless, an "R" rated Deadpool film would be spectacular done right.

Havn't you ever heard of The Punisher? I'm sure that was R rated. I'm also pretty sure that's a comic book movie. Anyways, this movie will rock. I've said it before but Reynolds was made to play Deadpool. Just watch Blade III.

yea but I don't think there will ever be an R rated comic movie. They mostly market these movies to teens and kids. Has there been an R rated comic movie yet? I could be wrong. Was Spawn or any of the Blade movies R rated? I think the best bet is to not worry about the rating, and get it as close to the comic as they can. I hope it turns out great though!

Let's not forget Kick-Ass and Watchmen.
And American Splendor, Ghost World, and Art School Confidential if we're talking indie comics.

...

I love when people call Liefeld talentless...he CREATED Deadpool (along with Cable and some of Marvel's more popular 90's characters)...the guy may be a shitty artist...but his impact on comics is a big one.

Ah Rob Liefeld, he supposedly had movie deals with Steven Spielberg and Will Smith back in the 90's, based on comics that produced zero issues and twelve ads in his own comics.

Liefeld is an idiot

Can't stand that guy, and I would question just about anything he ever says. I'm hip to a Deadpool movie though - it's gotta be better than Green Lantern, right?
