For a long time, many fans were worried that Fox would mess up Deadpool, but the fact that it was given an R rating last year indicated that they were taking things in the right direction. Now, with early word from screenings proving to be overwhelmingly positive and box office tracking pointing to it being a hit, things are looking very good for the Merc with the Mouth.
In even more exciting news, cast member T.J. Miller revealed at an event in London that an even harder R-Rated director’s cut is on the way:
“But yeah, so the idea that when you see the fall director’s cut of it, that that’s going to be even more raw, that’s pretty heavy duty.”
It’s common for director’s cuts of R-Rated comedies to be included with the Blu-ray release, but it usually doesn’t happen for superhero movies. It’ll definitely be interesting to see what’s included here, though; alternate takes are inevitable with a movie which apparently features a lot of improvisation, but more violence and references to Deadpool’s comic book adventures would definitely go a long way in making fans happy.
There’s also been some speculation that this new cut could be released in theaters, but that will no doubt hinge on how successful Deadpool is when it reaches the big screen later this month. For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
