I’ve written in the past about the hilarious baby Hitler scene that was cut out of Deadpool 2, but there was also about fifteen minutes cut from the film to bring it under two hours in its final theatrical release. According to a new interview, there’s a chance of us seeing those fifteen minutes.
Deadpool 2 director Davie Leitch told Cinemablend about a two hour and twelve minute assembly cut, which will possibly be released as a Director’s Cut in the future:
“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.”
In total there’s about fifteen minutes of stuff that was cut from the final version of the movie, mostly because people who saw it in advance felt it was paced a bit too slowly and those cuts really helped the pacing in the final movie.
If you’ve seen Deadpool 2, you’ll remember when he falls off the cliff after escaping the Icebox prison. Originally there’s a lot more after that and before he decides to save Russell. He goes back to the bar with Weasel and has more jokes, and then there’s the montage of him trying to kill himself in different ways. It did slow things down as you can imagine because it’s a big sequence between the Icebox and Deadpool deciding on his mission, but for those who have to see absolutely everything it sounds like we may get to see that later this year.
Hopefully they also include the baby Hitler post-credits scene since that’s already referenced in the movie.
