So for those who havent heard or seen it yet, Fox officially released and retracted a test footage clip for Deadpool (the movie!). Theories range from marketing stunts, accidental post and video leaks but as far as we know Fox released it and Blur Studios ( People who created the amazing CGI) published it. The problem is that if you’re looking for the video you’re going to struggle to find any footage since FOX is slamming copyright on everybody who airs the video (Youtube, blogs, etc).

Pixelsmithstudios grabbed a few screenshots and a video published (Update: its been removed from the internet, FOX is everywhere!)! Although the test footage is in CGI the movie is planned to be “real life”…although I wouldnt mind if they do it either way since the CGI looks amazing and they (Blur Studios) nailed Deadpool’s fighting style,personality and overall crazyness.

To be honest, I think I’d prefer this movie in CGI since it looks so amazing…but what do you expect from Blur Studios, their work is mind blowing!
