No joke is too dark or sexual act too depraved for the Marvel anti-hero, it seems.
However two major moments were cut from the movie. One, in particular, upset early test audiences.
Director David Leitch has been talking about why some scenes were cut but also, excitingly, confirms that they were so complete they can be added back into the extended cut for home entertainment, which will be at least 20 minutes longer.
Deadpool 2 extended version on DVD and Blu-ray: extra deleted scenes
Leitch told Collider: “I would say, ballpark, theres probably an additional 20 minutes of stuff. I’m actually putting it together now. We’re taking it slow. There’s a lot of alts (alternative takes) that we want to play with.
“I want to get Ryan (Reynolds) in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative.
“There are some great scenes in there that have been just lifted and it would be fun to be back in.”
Not everyone would agree the sight of Deadpool strangling a baby is “fun.”
Deadpool 2 extended version will be even ruder and more shocking
The deleted end credits scene showed the Merc With A Mouth time travelling when one trip took him to Hitler’s nursery. His decision to rewrite history is understandable, however the way the scene was filmed apparently disturbed test audiences and pulled them out of the film too much.
Another montage which was filmed but cut that showed Deadpool’s devastated reaction to the death of his girlfriend, Vanessa. Ultimately the sequence of increasingly OTT failed suicide attempts was deemed a little too dark but the director has already stated his intention to return it to the extended version.
Fans hoping for more Black Tom footage will be disappointed, though.
The character had originally featured more prominently in the storyline but was slowly edged out before shooting began, so there is not much available material to put back in.
Leitch added: “That story just got trimmed down but there wasn’t any photography in that respect.”
