Deadpool traces his on-screen journey back to 2008!
Fans are eagerly gearing up for Deadpool 2 this weekend, but it’s been a long road to success according to Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds.)
The short new video features the history of the Deadpool franchise, from the first pitch for a solo movie back in 2008 to the release of the sequel coming this Friday. Of course, all the fun comes in between, like Fox watering down Wade Wilson’s off-the-wall persona for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Reynolds’ turn to DC’s utter bomb Green Lantern, both of which are likely among the reasons why Fox said no to a Deadpool movie for several years.
It also pokes fun at the leaked test footage that ultimately galvanized fans and got the first movie made– Many believe that Ryan Reynolds himself is personally responsible for the leak and while that’s never been proven, he’s not exactly denying it here.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters this Friday, May 18, 2018.
