DEADPOOL 2 Will Be Getting an Extended Cut and Here Are Some Details on What It Will Include
Deadpool 2 had a very successful opening weekend as it made over $300 million worldwide at the box office. Fans seemed to love what it delivered and you'll be happy to learn that there's another extended cut of the film that we'll eventually get to see!
During a recent interview with Cinema Blend, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed that an Extended Cut of the film exists and it will be released on Blu-ray/DVD. They say "There’s going to be a version of the DVD that’s all-new jokes, the entire movie," and that will include the cut scene where Deadpool goes back in time to kill baby Hitler. Director David Leitch went on to say:
“It’s going back to the ‘director cut,’ and then sort of collaborating with Ryan, Rhett and Paul, and making sure we’re all getting all the jokes we want. It was like an 83 day shoot, and it was a lot of material. But I kept telling the studio, and I kept telling Ryan, I’m like, ‘No, the director’s cut going to come in at like 2:12.’ And he’s like, ‘No way!’ And I’m like, ‘It is! It’s going to come in at 2:12. I want to make it tight. I want you guys to get a really tight first look at the film. I don’t think it needs to be bloated and I’m not that type of filmmaker.'"
That's 12 minutes of additional footage for fans to enjoy and he goes on to reveal that some of that footage will include a montage of different suicide attempts made by Wade Wilson after his girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) dies.
"The suicide scene is in there, and there’s a scene in the mansion in the kitchen over breakfast. There’s some extra Domino stuff. There’s a lot of fun little bits, and then a lot of alts! We’re looking for every place we can put an alt.”
Rhett Reese went on to share another scene that involves Colossus and a soap dispenser. If you've seen the film, this will add to the humor of Colossus smelling his fingers:
“We had a scene in the kitchen in the X Mansion, which is one of our favorites. You see Deadpool say 'ejaculated into a soap dispenser a hero,' and Colossus goes (smells fingers). There’s an earlier scene where they’re in the kitchen and Colossus is trying to get the soap dispenser to work. And he’s like, 'This won’t work.' And Deadpool’s like, 'Just give it a few extra pumps. I just filled it.' The kitchen scene was fun. He’s labeling stuff in the refrigerator as he was told to do. And so he’s putting Velcro labels on, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead is not buying his go-straight routine. She’s like, 'I see through you, you’re still full of shit.' It was fun."
Sounds like something that fans of the Deadpool franchise are going to enjoy! I can't wait to see what else the creative team ends up adding to the Deadpool 2 Extended Cut.
