Check Out a Behind the Scenes Photo from the 'Deadpool' Test Reel
Those of us who were online at the right time earlier this week were lucky enough to see the leaked footage of the test reel for a potential Deadpool movie that director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick put together with Ryan Renyolds. The footage has been around for awhile, and it's even leaked in better quality, but the timing after Comic-Con was perfect, and hopefully it showed 20th Century Fox just how keen people are to see the smart ass character hit the big screen without having his reputation sullied and his mouth sewn shut. Now we get a different look at the rest reel with a behind the scenes photo.
Here's the behind the scenes photo from the Deadpool test reel set, posted from Rhett Reese's Twitter:

You might have been able to tell that there was a lot of visual effects going on in the Deadpool test reel, even though the quality of the video was low. And as you can see from the set photo above, that's because almost all of it was created in an Avatar sort of fashion. Deadpool's suit and mask were complete created with visual effects, and it seems like most of the environments were created digitally. The photo above seems to be of Reynolds sitting on the building ledge in the opening of the test footage where Deadpool is singing "Hollaback Girl." We really hope this flick becomes a reality now more than ever. How about you?
