Under the Radar

Now You Can See the 'Deadpool' Movie Ryan Reynolds Really Wanted to Make

Ryan Reynolds stars in "Deadpool 2." (Fox)

"Deadpool 2" is out now on 4K UltraHD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. There's a special edition with a "Super Duper $@%!#& Cut" that adds 15 minutes to the running time and offers a very different version of the movie.

Theatrical "Deadpool 2" opens with the death of a loved one and proceeds with the Merc With a Mouth's attempts to piece his life back together. He becomes an X-Men Trainee and encounters the orphan mutant Firefist (Julian Dennison). Both end up in mutant prison and Cable (Josh Brolin) arrives from the future to kill the kids, since a grown-up Firefist will eventually murder his family.

Deadpool learns about family (and time travel) and the world is set right with some X-Men assistance from Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead.

That's not really the point, though. Deadpool is about taking shots and other movie franchises and gross-out jokes about violence and poop. The theatrical cut plays as a dirtier version of an X-Men movie, something that's recognizably still connected to the X-Men universe.

The Super Duper $@%!#& Cut is the filmmakers run amok. Action scenes run longer (and bloodier), there's more nudity, more running jokes sure to piss off the competition, different music cues and a slightly goofier version of Cable. Warning for parents whose kids attend sleepovers: If the R-rated theatrical version was an inappropriate outing for an 8-year-old, showing this cut a kid might warrant a call to Family Services.  

Immature grown-ups who love Deadpool will find this hilarious. There's a ton of insidery bonus material so fans can feel like they're in on the joke with Ryan:

  • Gag Reel (1080p; 3:11)

  • Until Your Face Hurts: Alt Takes (1080p; 9:25) isn't just takes, but interstitial interviews, so this plays more like an EPK.
