Given its enormous success, it's hard to believe that Deadpool was such a hard sell. But in fact, the movie was in production (in one way or another) for over a decade. The test footage you're about to see was created by director Tim Miller and his special effects team in 2012 and leaked online in 2014. You'll notice it's a CGI scene, but if you've seen the movie, you know this sequence does actually make it into the film. The biggest difference, of course, is that this is a motion-capture image of Ryan Reynolds, and the movie features actual Ryan Reynolds. It's pretty crazy to see how closely the test footage resembles the final product!
