Dailies | Ryan Reynolds Cracks Jokes and Skulls in Leaked ‘Deadpool’ Test Footage (Video)

The actor also sings along with Gwen Stefani‘s “Hollaback Girl”

There has been talk of a “Deadpool” movie since Ryan Reynolds got his head chopped off at the end of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” but 20th Century Fox has yet to give the greenlight to the “X-Men” spinoff. Leaked pre-production footage, however, shows the studio has been given a preview of what the film would look and sound like.

The CGI-rendered scene features the titular Marvel hero diving into action while Reynold’s voice cracks jokes along the way.

Reynolds has said he hopes the movie gets made “eventually,” but admits it is “a risky property” due to its R rating, as well as it’s unique sense of humor, which the actor described as “very meta.”
