In Tuesday's (Feb. 9) episode of "The Tonight Show," Ryan Reynolds stopped by to talk up his latest superhero film, "Deadpool." The highly anticipated film is the latest Marvel movie -- put out by Fox -- to hit theaters.

First seen fighting Wolverine in "X-Men: Origins," Reynolds tells Jimmy Fallon it has taken him over a decade to get this movie made. After spending literally four years collecting dust on a shelf at the studio, someone decided to leak some test footage for the project online. Needless to say, the fans went nuts.

After developing the script six years ago, the team stuck with it and once that leak happened, Fox was given no choice but to greenlight the movie. Now, Reynolds doesn't admit to being complicit in the aforementioned leak, but he does state, "I know that one of us did it."

It's uncertain if this argument would hold up in a court of law, but Reynolds commits to the possibility of his innocent in saying, "I'm 70% sure it wasn't me."

"Deadpool" hits theaters everywhere Friday, Feb. 12.
