‘Deadpool 2’ Writers Say They Shot (But Cut) an ‘Increasingly Violent’ Wade Wilson Suicide Montage

“Deadpool 2” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick invited Marvel fans to ask them anything on Friday, and the Reddit community didn’t disappoint.

A user named ace22nd posed to the duo: “Any jokes/gags you really wanted to do but couldn’t?”

“One thing we really wanted to see (and actually shot!) was a Deadpool suicide montage, where DP is trying to kill himself over and over in increasingly violent ways (drinking Drano, jumping into a polar bear enclosure), etc.,” they responded during the AMA. “You should be able to see it on the DVD!”

In case you’re not a fan, Wade Wilson — Deadpool’s public alter-ego — can’t really die due to his accelerated healing factor superpower. Or at the very least, he’s pretty damn hard to kill, try as Cable (Josh Brolin) might.

On Friday, the Twentieth Century Fox film set a new box office record for an R-rated movie opening.

‘Deadpool 2′: Blink and You Probably Missed These Cameos in the X-Mansion

(Note: This post, while very good, contains spoilers for “Deadpool 2.” Read at your own risk.)

Since the failure of the Deadpool character in Fox’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in 2009, the self-aware and self-referential anti-hero has been seemingly relegated to the B team of Fox’s superhero assets.

There’s a running gag from the first film that carries over to “Deadpool 2” that the studio couldn’t — or wouldn’t — spring to include more popular characters from the X-Men universe in the film.

In the first “Deadpool,” while talking to X-Men Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Deadpool says, “It’s funny that I only ever see two of you. It’s almost like the studio couldn’t afford another X-Man.”

In “Deadpool 2,” as is the curse and joy of sequels, the filmmakers double down on the gag and outdid the original reference.

In an early scene after Deadpool has blown himself to bits following the death of his fridged girlfriend played by Morena Baccarin, Colossus takes Deadpool/Wade Wilson to X-Mansion. That is, of course, X-Men home base.

As Wade rides around the mansion in Professor X’s wheelchair — an Easter egg that gets a laugh in and of itself — he makes another reference to the scarcity of significant X-Men characters the studio forked over for “Deadpool 2.”

If you blinked, you might have missed it because it’s in that split-second when he rides by an open door, and in the room is a host of X-Men from the studio’s other movies. It’s a quick glimpse and you may have to squint to catch them all, but at the very least we see Evan Peters’ Quicksilver, James McAvoy as Professor Xavier, Beast and Cyclops.

They give a quick exasperated look as Wade rants and complains, and then Beast shuts the door.

Here's What's Going on in That Brilliant 'Deadpool 2' Mid-Credits Scene

Yes, Stan Lee Did Have a Very Brief Cameo in 'Deadpool 2'

‘Deadpool 2’ Is Right: That ‘Frozen’ Song Does Sound Like ‘Yentl’

(Note: This post contains some light spoilers for “Deadpool 2.”)

“Deadpool 2” definitely knows its audience. That’s why it rattles off jokes about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC movie universe with abandon — it knows the folks who like superhero movies will be able to follow along. But one of the weirder pop culture jokes in the movie is the one about two more unlikely references: Barbra Streisand’s “Yentl,” and Disney’s “Frozen.”

The joke runs throughout the movie, starting in the scene in which Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) celebrate their anniversary. The couple decides to start a family. “Let’s put on some porn and you can pump a baby into me,” Vanessa says, and the pair presumably head to another room to get it on.

Also Read: ‘Deadpool 2’: Every Joke Dunking on the DC Movie Universe

Cut to Wade and Vanessa watching a movie, but not the one you might expect: It’s “Yentl,” the 1983 musical starring Streisand, in which she pretends to be a man so she can enroll in a Jewish religious school. Whether the couple is watching Streisand after their baby-making session or they have a non-standard definition of porn is up to the audience.

The use of “Yentl” is funny on its own, but it goes a lot further as it becomes a running gag. The movie pops up again later, after Wade goes through some tough emotional moments. As he wallows in sadness, wishing he was dead, he also ponders some of the mysteries of the universe — specifically, whether he’s the only one who thinks the song “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” from “Yentl” sounds like “Do You Want to Build a Snowman” from the 2013 animated movie “Frozen.” He makes the observation a couple of times, always when the emotional chips are down.

You can compare the two songs below for yourself.

Also Read: Yes, Stan Lee Did Have a Very Brief Cameo in ‘Deadpool 2’

Unlike “Yentl,” “Deadpool 2” doesn’t include a direct reference to “Frozen” on-screen, so one might wonder why Wade might be thinking about a children’s movie (apart from the fact that knowing everything about pop culture could be considered one of his superpowers).

Also Read: ‘Deadpool 2’: Did You Catch Deadpool’s Jared Kushner Joke?

The answer is that “Frozen” isn’t on Wade’s mind, but on Reynolds’. As USA Today reports, Reynolds and wife and actress Blake Lively have two young daughters, James and Ines. It’s become something of a truism in America that all small children are obsessed with “Frozen,” and it seems that’s true for Reynolds’ kids, too.

The “Yentl” joke is just a long road to give Reynolds a chance to make a dadly observation about the two songs — and maybe kick off a copyright battle between Streisand and Disney.

What’s less clear is where the inspiration came from for the joke that “Yentl” might be Deadpool’s porn. That one is left to fans’ imaginations, apparently.

‘Deadpool 2′: Ryan Reynolds Shares His Oscars Speech One Day After Marvel Movie Opens

Ryan Reynolds already has his Oscars speech prepared for that inevitable “Deadpool 2” Best Picture win. Or perhaps its for Best Actor. Either way.

Among those the all-red Marvel superhero would like to thank are the fans, the fans, and “especially the fans.” Throw in the other requisites like “the cast” and “crew” and we’re off to a good start. The posted GIF also expresses gratitude to the families of those involved on the Twentieth Century Fox film, which we thought was a nice touch.

And then the whole thing gets very Deadpool-y.

Also Read: So What Exactly Is Domino’s Superpower in ‘Deadpool 2?’

The Marvel character goes on to thank the crew’s pets and “their communicable diseases.” He then shouts out Jimmy Changa, which the Urban Dictionary defines as “A penis that is so unappealing that you wake up the next morning feeling like you shouldn’t have taken that wiener. Much like the after feelings of eating a chimichanga.”

Plus, there are the Teletubbies, Seabiscuit the movie horse, Ron Weasley from “Harry Potter,” and even the insect that bit Spider-Man. We’ll let readers discover some of the other ones on their own.

The lone person he seemingly won’t thank? Ryan Reynolds. OK, so this is technically Deadpool’s speech — that masked rapscallion.

Box Office: ‘Deadpool 2’ Unseats ‘Infinity War,’ Opens to Heroic $133 Million

Ryan Reynold’s “Deadpool 2” is set to take the No. 1 box office crown from “Avengers: Infinity War” this weekend, with $133.5 million from 4,349 North American locations. The second R-rated superhero film from Fox took in $53.3 million Friday, including a record-setting $18.6 million from Thursday previews, the highest Thursday tally for an R-rated […]

‘Deadpool 2’ Breaks Opening Day Record for R-Rated Film

Last year, “Deadpool” saw its box office record for the biggest opening day for an R-Rated film broken by “It” with $50.4 million. Now, Deadpool has struck back against Pennywise, as “Deadpool 2” has set a new opening day record for R films with $53.3 million.

This means that Fox’s sequel, which was distributed to a studio-record 4,349 screens, is on pace to match its predecessor’s $132 million opening and likely beat it if its strong momentum continues into Saturday. Critics and audiences loved the film as much as Wade Wilson’s first outing, giving it an 84 percent Rotten Tomatoes score and an A on CinemaScore.

The $53 million start for “Deadpool 2” includes $18 million from Thursday previews, also a record for R-Rated films. This new record was fueled in good part by robust advance ticket sales. Fandango reported that sales for “Deadpool 2” on their site were outpacing that of the first “Deadpool,” while Atom Tickets reported that the sequel was now their biggest advance seller ever, passing even “Avengers: Infinity War.” Atom reported the demographic breakdown of the sales as 61 percent male and 57 percent under the age of 34.

In the face of this comic book movie competition, “Avengers: Infinity War” is looking at a fourth-weekend total of about $27 million, which would bring the Marvel Studios megahit a few million short of $600 million domestic. “Avengers” shed about 400 screens with the arrival of “Deadpool 2,” and will likely shed more next weekend when “Solo: A Star Wars Story” arrives.

Still, Thanos has already made his fortunes, with “Infinity War” passing $1.7 billion worldwide on Thursday and expected to make history by crossing $2 billion likely sometime during Memorial Day weekend.

In third is Paramount’s “Book Club,” which is looking at an opening of $14-15 million from 2,781 locations after making $4.7 million on Friday.

The comedy starring Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen was projected to make $10 million this weekend, but analysts who spoke to TheWrap this past weekend said a mid-teens opening was possible. While critics have been mixed with a 57 percent RT score, the film succeeded in winning over older female audiences, who gave it an A- on CinemaScore.

That’s good news for Paramount, who bought the distribution rights to this film for $10 million and will now look for the good word of mouth from opening night to carry “Book Club” to strong numbers in the coming weeks.

The top five is completed by last week’s releases, WB/New Line’s “Life of the Party” and Universal’s “Breaking In.” “Life of the Party” is estimated to fall around 60 percent from its $17.8 million start after making $2.2 million on its second Friday, while “Breaking In” is estimated for a 63 percent drop after making $1.9 million. This should put the ten-day total for both films at $29-30 million, though this is better news for “Breaking In” as it has a $6 million budget compared to $32 million for “Life of the Party.”

Falling outside the top five is Global Road’s family comedy “Show Dogs” with an estimated $5 million opening from 3,212 screens. The film has an A- on CinemaScore, mostly from kids who loved the slapstick comedy of a cop (Will Arnett) who goes undercover at a dog show with his talking canine partner, but critics panned it with a 26 percent RT score.

Finally, Warner Bros. brought back “2001: A Space Odyssey” for a limited engagement to celebrate the legendary sci-fi epic’s 50th anniversary. Four theaters, one each in L.A., New York, San Francisco, and Chicago, screened a restored 70mm print of Stanley Kubrick’s film taken from the original negative by a team led by Kubrick and 70mm enthusiast Christopher Nolan. The limited engagement made $57,000 on Friday and is expected to have the highest per screen average of the weekend.

'Deadpool 2': Every Joke Dunking on the DC Movie Universe

So What Exactly Is Domino’s Superpower in ‘Deadpool 2?’

(Warning: Spoilers ahead for “Deadpool 2,” so for real, don’t read any further unless you just want to be spoiled.)

So you’ve finally seen “Deadpool 2” and are wondering what exactly is Domino’s superpower in the movie – besides stealing every scene she is in, of course.

Played by “Atlanta” star Zazie Beetz, the short answer is that Neena Thurman, AKA Domino is extremely lucky. And not just in a random, occasional, hey-wow-I-won-the-lottery way. But in an all-day-every-day-things-just-work-out-perfectly kind of lucky.

The long answer, as explained in the comics, is that Domino is a mutant whose power is subconscious, highly random telekinesis affecting things within her line of sight. In other words, her mind autonomically controls objects and space around her just like her heart keeps beating and her lungs keep delivering oxygen to her body.  This causes improbable (though not impossible) things to just sort of occur — things that benefit her, or things that hurt people trying to attack her.

In the film, this power comes in handy a lot, including one hilarious sequence when she and the rest of X-Force jump out of a helicopter in dangerously high winds. While the winds blow the rest of the team toward some particularly gruesome ends, they end up sending her exactly where she needed to be.

Created by Rob Liefeld, Domino first fully appeared in X-Force, vol. 1 #11 (June 1992). She’s also got longstanding ties to other characters from “Deadpool 2,” especially Cable. (You can read more about all that here.)

Beetz is best known as being the breakout star of FX’s “Atalanta,” and the only female lead on the show. She plays the on-again off-again girlfriend of Donald Glover’s character, Earn.
