Rob Liefeld Speaks On Eight-Minute Test Footage Of “Deadpool” Movie?
The above video is of a panel with Rob Liefeld (The New Mutants, Youngblood) and Scott Lobdell (Teen Titans) at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con recently. But the part that has got many Deadpool fans teased and/or confused is news of test footage of a Deadpool movie.
“They’ve got a great director on the movie, they’ve got a great script. I may or may have not seen some sort of test of footage that would blow your mind if you saw it and go holy crap and 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 that it’s even been to going, or going Naaah, that’s too scary a proposition to make a R Rated Deadpool movie.”
If this test footage is anyway related to the supposed script I read about a year ago, I definitely want to see it. Of course, I can’t really remember the last time I actually took something from Liefeld’s mouth seriously.
