This Scene Almost Didn’t Make it into Deadpool 2 [Spoilers]

Posted by May 22, 2018 Comment

There are plenty of reasons a scene almost doesn’t make it into a movie. For Deadpool 2 there was a very technical reason one scene almost didn’t make it and on the Empire Film Podcast Ryan Reynolds explains how it came to be. However, it deals with a scene that is a big spoiler so we’re going to throw up the spoiler warning. If you haven’t seen the movie yet it’s probably best to skip this one.

At the end of the movie Deadpool fixes Cable’s time traveling device and he goes back in time to do a lot of changes including the timeline in a bunch of different things including saving Vanessa and Peter. He also goes back to kill the version of Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It turns out that that scene was not exactly easy to film according Reynolds.

“We had a dick of a time trying to get the actual raw footage though from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The movie was shot on film, it wasn’t shot on digital so it was harder to get. We were sitting there on the Fox lot, the exact piece of the movie we need had been damaged on whatever the transfer was, so we had to go to some backup which was in some vault somewhere in the middle of the country, the United States, and we ended up finally, at the last second inputting it into the movie. For me, I was literally losing sleep over it though, I was thinking ‘oh my god, how are we going to do this, am I going to have to call Hugh and ask him to shoot this chunk that looks exactly like a movie he’s already done?’ I can’t think of a worse hell for a human being to do.”

When you think about it the issues make a lot of sense. The movie is nearly ten years old and a lot of changed in that time. It’s great that they were able to make the gag work since it’s one of the best scenes in the movie.

Summary(?): After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Zazie Beetz. It’s out now.
