Come see some of the best material that didn't end up in Deadpool!
This 6-minute video features Ryan Reynolds doing his best Arnold Schwarzenegger impression, Deadpool referencing Eddie Murphy's 1986 film The Golden Child, Weasel unleashing some brutal insults, and a look at scenes from the Wade Wilson-Vanessa sex montage that ended up the cutting room floor.
In the film, trailers and TV spots, when seeing Wade Wilson's scarred face for the first time, Weasel came up with inventive and mean ways of describing his friend's hideous appearance -- such as: "You look like Freddy Krueger face-f--ked a topographical map of Utah" and "You look like an avocado had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado."
When promoting the film, director Tim Miller revealed that Miller and Reynolds improvised a lot more material for that particular scene. "That bar scene was particularly mean and offensive to a lot of people because T.J. and Ryan got together and wrote a version of the scene that we just said, 'Oh my God, this is too far,'" he explained. "I mean there were so many people offended it would have really been - we couldn't do it. It was just mean and so I said, 'No. We don't have to do that.'"
Thanks to the video above, we now know which insults didn't make the cut. For a few examples, Weasel tells Wade his face looks like: "some sort of crystal you would see at two-bit psychic," "someone turned your face inside-out and just left it like that, but then you got in a house fire," and "a trashcan full of sh-t was placed on your shoulders and then you were in a train fire."
Deadpool (2016) - Hold onto your chimichangas, folks. From the studio that brought you all 3 Taken films comes DEADPOOL, the block-busting, fourth-wall-breaking masterpiece about Marvel Comics’ sexiest anti-hero: me! Go deep inside (I love that) my origin story...typical stuff...rogue experiment, accelerated healing powers, horrible disfigurement, red spandex, imminent revenge. Directed by overpaid tool Tim Miller, and starring God’s perfect idiot Ryan Reynolds, Ed Skrein, Morena Baccarin, T. J. Miller and Gina Carano, DEADPOOL is a giddy slice of awesomeness packed with more twists than my enemies’ intestines and more action than prom night. Amazeballs!
The Deadpool sequel, which is being directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) and written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, is currently in pre-production and is expected to begin filming at the end of this spring. The film will introduce Deadpool's time-traveling mutant partner Cable, who is being played by Men In Black 3 star Josh Brolin; and X-Force member Domino, who is being portrayed by Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz. Supporting characters from the original film — such as Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapicic), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), taxi driver Dopinder (Karan Soni), and Wade Wilson's love interest Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) — are also expected to return.
Deadpool 2 will arrive in theater in 2018.
