Deadpool Will Not Get A Director's Cut

Deadpool revels in its R-rating. There's plenty of sex, violence and vulgar humor to go around, but of course some people are never content and desire a director's cut with even more naughty goodness. According to director Tim Miller there will be no such cut of Deadpool. What you saw is what you get.

“I don’t wanna be all Joss Whedon on you, but no there’s not [a director’s cut]…," Miller said during Collider’s IMAX preview screening of the film. “There are some deleted scenes that have some extra stuff, but I’m pretty happy with this cut. I like it.”

As for deleted scenes, you can expect to see more violent imagery from the Wade Wilson/Francis fight. Producer Simon Kinberg suggested trimming it down a bit, and Miller agreed.

“There’s some stuff on the DVD extras, I had a little more workshop fight in there that I liked—that’s the beat that we were talking about, [Simon’s] like, ‘Tim it’s violent enough, please’ and I’m like, ‘Oh no but man when he stomps on his face it’s awesome,’ and Simon’s like, ‘No we’ve got enough.’ (laughs)”

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
