“Deadpool 2” Gets Extended Cut for Blu-ray Release

Deadpool 2 was one of this summer's many fun sequels, a riff on Terminator 2 that defiantly thumbed its nose at conventional superhero movies and had a climax that hinged on a pun. Even so, it made more than $700 million worldwide and both a sequel and an X-Force spin-off should get rolling any day now.

The film will hit digital services on August 7, but if you really want maximum DP, you'll have to wait until August 21, when the film hits Blu-ray and 4K UHD. The "Super Duper $@%!#& Cut" contains 15 extra minutes of footage, including deleted and extended scenes, as well as alternate takes.

The high-def versions also include a ton of bonus features, including an audio commentary with Ryan Reynolds, director David Leitch, and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (on the theatrical version). There's also a gag reel, a ton of featurettes, and something called "Chess with Omega Red," which is sure to get fanboys salivating at the prospect of the character appearing in a future film.

Fans in San Diego for Comic-Con can get even more action, when Deadpool himself shows up at Hall H on Saturday, June 21 at 5:15pm, with a world premiere screening of the Super Duper $@%!#& Cut following at 9:30pm. There will also be nightly dance parties with an X-Force version of the Rockafire Explosion and a recreation of Deadpool's apartment at the Hard Rock Hotel. Fans can enter a contest – starting July 20 – to stay there on Saturday night.

That's a lot of D, as the press release puts it, but you'll know how to handle it.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
