Deadpool may be R rated, but apparently its most intense scenes were left on the cutting room floor.
Deadpool is already a unique superhero film just for embracing an R rating, as its latest trailer proved. Here’s the thing: Despite all those gory decapitations and lewd language, worse scenes were cut from the finished film. But they won’t stay away for long. Deadpool will eventually get a director’s cut with everything Fox thought was too intense for theaters, even within an R-rated movie.
The information was confirmed by TJ Miller, who plays as Weasel in the finished movie. “It’s the idea that, when you see the full director’s cut of [Deadpool], that’s going to be even more raw,” Miller explained. “That’s pretty heavy duty.”
So how bad are these scenes, exactly? No idea, but the theatrical release is reportedly banned in China for its violence, nudity, and graphic language. Now consider that Deadpool is 1 hour and 46 minutes long – one of the shortest comic book movies ever produced. This means either Deadpool‘s writers are incredibly efficient storytellers, or a ton of content was dropped from the film.
Either way, Deadpool is looking to a hilariously violent and raunchy film, whatever the edition. The theatrical cut will be available on Feb. 12, 2016.
