Will there be a Director’s Cut for “Deadpool?”
Just as there will only be one Deadpool, there will also be only one Deadpool, the movie. What does this mean you may ask? Basically, there will not be a special release of the movie with a Director’s Cut because what fans are seeing in the theater is the Director’s Cut! Now for those of you think that there aren’t any additional or deleted scenes from the movie, have no fear because Slashfilm is reporting that according to director Tim Miller, additional exciting deleted scenes are most definitely NOT out of the question.
Miller fielded a question about the possibility of a Deadpool director’s cut in a recent Q&A moderated by Collider. And then he swiftly shot it down.
“I don’t want to be all Joss Whedon on you, but no there’s not [a director’s cut]. There are some deleted scenes that have some extra stuff, but I’m pretty happy with this cut. I like it.”
Unfortunately that statement runs contrary to actor T.J. Miller previously said in which he teased a more hardcore version of the movie. “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.”
Tim Miller has every reason to be happy with the version of Deadpool that got released. It’s been a huge hit with critics and audiences alike, and does an impressively good job of balancing Deadpool’s snarky side with his more serious predicament. Plus, word of mouth on this one is so good that it’ll probably have no trouble moving Blu-rays, DVDs, and digital downloads whenever it wraps up its theatrical run and heads to home video.
And while we may not get a Deadpool director’s cut, we may see some of that unused footage yet. Including, apparently, some really twisted bits. “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,” he said. “[Producer Simon Kinberg‘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.’”
So, are you disappointed in the apparent lack of a Director’s Cut, or do you think the studio will still push to have one released for both the sake of the fans, not to mention the wallets of all the suits at 20th Century Fox?
