Deadpool 2 to screen special 'uncut' version at Comic-Con
You don’t have to wait for whatever’s going on with the X-Force movie or a third Deadpool to see more from Ryan Reynolds‘ Merc with the Mouth. Twentieth Century Fox is bringing a special “uncut” edition of Deadpool 2 to show fans at San Diego Comic-Con this month.
Deadpool 2 Super Duper $@%!#& Cut will be included on the film’s Blu-ray and digital release this Aug. 21 and feature “15 minutes of brand-new action and jokes lovingly inserted throughout,” according to Fox. The official San Diego Comic-Con website lists this Comic-Con screening will be held Saturday, July 21 from 10 p.m.-12 a.m. PT at San Diego’s Horton Grand Theatre near the Convention Center. Doors will open at 9:30 p.m. PT.
Tickets will be available for Saturday or weekend-long Comic-Con badge holders beginning at 9 a.m. PT on July 21 at the Sails Pavilion.
Earlier in the day, Fox will also be holding a Deadpool 2 panel in Hall H from 5:15 p.m.-6:15 p.m. This will include some “pals” who will drop in.
Deadpool 2 starred Reynolds as Wade Wilson, who’s determined to save a young mutant (Julian Dennison’s “Firefist”) from being killed by Cable (Josh Brolin), a time-traveling, bionic-armed mutant trying to rewrite his own future. Morena Baccarin, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Brianna Hildebrand, Terry Crews, Lewis Tan, and Bill Skarsgard also featured in the sequel, directed by David Leitch.
While the future of the X-Men movies are unclear with the looming purchase of 20th Century Fox by Walt Disney Company, Drew Goddard (The Cabin the Woods, Netflix’s Daredevil) is writing and directing a movie about X-Force — the name given to Wade’s super-group in Deadpool 2.
“Drew, Ryan, and I sat down and talked quite a bit about what X-Force would be, but we haven’t settled on who those characters are yet,” franchise producer Simon Kinberg told EW. “But certainly we’d want Cable and Domino to be part of it.”
Other X-Men titles in development include X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants with Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams, the secret 143 film from original Deadpool director Tim Miller, and that solo Gambit movie with Channing Tatum the producers claim is still happening at some point. (We’ll believe it when we see it.) While we wait for more intel on these films, we at least now have the Super Duper $@%!#& Cut
