Recently, it was discovered that some details from the Deadpool movie were leaked to the fans. However, it was revealed by writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese that only 70 percent of the leaked material was actually used in the film. An earlier movie script had less superhero combat action and more gunfire. IGN reported that director Tim Miller chose to alter the combat scenes in the movie. Therefore, Miller laughed when he stated, the script that was leaked gave fans a little taste, but not enough to ruin the movie.
Writers, Reese and Wernick, were not bothered by the leaked script. As a matter of fact, they were glad to hear the material was so well-received by fans. After all, it was leaked footage, Ryan Reynolds, and vocal fans that convinced 20th Century Fox to make the movie originally.
Miller told fans that Deadpool could be attracted to anyone, regardless of their sexual identity, which is a detail many already knew before the leak. Reynolds said there is sexuality in the movie, but concerning how much, he responded there had not been any complaints from the studio. Reynolds says that because Deadpool is based on a comic book, he has been happily surprised with what the studio has allowed them to get away with in the filming so far. The studio has actually enjoyed what they have seen of the movie and the script and have not received any complaints.
An entire day was dedicated to a photo shoot of Deadpool’s actions. Those actions include some insane activities. Reynolds said there will be more photo shoots and the pictures will be slowly released to the public.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Miller stated that Reynolds was a lot like the character he plays. He has the same humor and is as immature every day, which Miller likes because it makes him laugh. The director also said that both the actor and the character are nasty and filthy; he did not offer any further detail.
Reynolds beefed up for his role as Deadpool, so the muscle suit was removed from the costume. Miller wanted fans to know that is “100 percent USDA Ryan Reynolds underneath.”
In an interview with Collider, Miller and Reynolds shared that there was a point where no one believed Deadpool would make it to production. Reynolds gave credit to Miller for keeping the faith, as he was at the point where he believed it may be time to let go of this dream. There were frustrating and confusing times when he was unsure if the team was going to push forward or give up, but the director, Reese, and Wernick were not willing to forfeit their efforts.
In the interview, the writers said the script has been significantly altered, even evolved. They also admitted with the original script, people would have left the theater disappointed.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel will be launching a five-part comic book series when Deadpool is released. The magazines will be called Deadpool and the Mercs for Money, written by Cullen Bunn, with art by, Salva Espin. The only detail released about the comic is that Deadpool will face 12 of the deadliest enemies in Marvel. It is not known if the comics will go along with the movie. There is a mini-series set to be launched in February, which will complement the movie.
Recently, details of the upcoming Deadpool movie were leaked. The director said he was not the one to leak the footage. The unedited material that fans witnessed just gave them a taste, according to Miller, but was not enough to ruin the movie.
