Deadpool has smashed almost every record in its way this past weekend at the box office. But two years from now there were no signs of any Deadpool movie until the test footage leaked online. And after getting a fantastic response from fans, 20th Century Fox announced a solo movie for the 'Merc with the Mouth' .
Since then it is a mystery whether who leaked this footage online. And a new report points to director, Tim Miller for that. As the Hollywood reporter is almost sure that it was Tim Miller or someone close to him who made that footage. As they report:
While Miller hasn’t publicly said he was behind the leak, numerous sources point to him or one of his colleagues at Blur. I have no smoking-gun proof other than my typically very reliable sources on such matters. But if so, it was a bold move from a filmmaker who had nothing to lose and everything to gain.
THR continues to say that it might be Tim as he has nothing to lose, if he is indeed responsible for the leak. However Tim has denied many time these rumours publicly. As other sources say this footage is leaked from the mails sent to get Miller more work as a showcase of his talent.
Ryan Reynolds had said previously that he and the director, Tim Miller had thought about the idea of leaking the footage. But he thinks he is not responsible for this.
So, unless someone comes forward and tells everyone the truth, it is Tim Miller or someone close to him leaked the footage for us.
