When Ryan Reynolds was introduced as Wade Wilson/Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the hope was that the character could have his own adventure sometime in the future, but the film’s poor performance prevented the project from gaining traction.
Now, the star has revealed that it was a test footage he developed for a potential spinoff that brought the film to life. The images were leaked and gained strength on the internet, leading to the production of the 2016 feature that started the mercenary franchise.
