Despite the long-running rumors of an “even more raw” director’s cut of current box office blockbuster “Deadpool,” the film’s director says that’s just not going to happen.
Tim Miller went on record shortly before his and star Ryan Reynolds’ irreverent superhero flick went on to demolish box office records, saying that he’s actually pretty pleased with what fans are lining up to see.
“I don’t wanna be all Joss Whedon on you, but no there’s not [a director’s cut]…” Miller told Collider. “There are some deleted scenes that have some extra stuff, but I’m pretty happy with this cut. I like it.”
Of course, there are a number of things that will appear on the Blu-ray edition, but they’ll appear as extras rather then being re-wroeked into the film’s narrative.
“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, [Simon Kinsberg’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.’ [Laughs]”
“Deadpool” is in theaters now, where it’s continuing to outperform any and all expectations on its way to a record-setting opening weekend.
