For years, fans have been hoping to have a theaterical film featuring the "merc with the mouth", but the studios were not having any of it, because an "R" rated super-hero film would be a major financial risk, and Deadpool is certainly a character you can not do a disservice by making PG-13. He is the only character that can brutally chop off someone's head and make you laugh while doing so.
It was rumored that a Deadpool film was in development a few years ago, but only in the early stages. Thankfully, a bit of test footage was shown at San Diego Comic Con, and boy, is it everything a Deadpool fan could ever dream of.
UPDATE: Multiple sources have reported that this footage is not actually from SDCC, but from unknown whereabouts, with the rumor stating that is all a planned "leak" to gauge audience reaction.
