Reynolds Reveals Why "Deadpool" SDCC Footage Hasn't Been Released

After its gleefully foul-mouthed and violent trailer screened for those at Fox's Hall H presentation at Comic-Con International on Saturday, "Deadpool" became one of the most buzzed-about movies at the mega convention. The footage definitely confirmed the film's R-rating and featured pretty much every character that's been announced for the film -- but don't expect to see that footage any time soon.

With fans not in San Diego over the weekend clamoring to see Deadpool in action, leading man Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to explain why the footage from the 20th Century Fox film has yet to make its way online.

As much as I want the #deadpool footage from #SDCC officially released, the VFX shots aren't done yet. We have something for you in 3 weeks.

So it looks like DP fans will have to wait a little while longer to see Wade Wilson walk and talk, or they'll have to settle for low-quality cell phone footage leaks. That "something" Reynolds means could be anything, too, ranging from the Comic-Con footage with completed graphics or something new all together. CBR's rundown of Fox's panel includes the following tidbits about the trailer:

Then, some new footage Some choice moments: going into surgery, "Just don't make the super suit green-or animated!"; Meeting Negasonic Teenage Warhead: "What the shit? That's the coolest name ever!"; Colossus; Stan Lee MCing a strip club

"Deadpool" opens on February 12, 2016.
