More Deadpool 2 extended cut details revealed
20th Century Fox‘s Deadpool 2 brought in an incredible $300 million worldwide this past weekend, but the movie that everyone saw isn’t the only version. During our interview with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick they confirmed that, “There’s going to be a version of the DVD that’s all new jokes, the entire movie,” including the now-infamous “killing baby Hitler” scene. In speaking to Cinema Blend, the filmmakers have gone on record about other things you can expect from the Deadpool 2 extended cut. SPOILERS AHEAD!
“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,” confirmed director David Leitch. “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.'”
Leitch confirmed that his director’s assembly cut included 12-minutes of deleted scenes, including a montage of different suicide attempts 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,” Leitch added. “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.”
“We had a scene in the kitchen in the X Mansion, which is one of our favorites,” confirmed Rhett Reese. “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.”
The David Leitch-directed film stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.
The film’s “official synopsis” reads as follows: After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
