We loved Deadpool – and let’s be honest, it seems everyone who was old enough to see it, did too, and tonight we have a couple of interesting pieces of Deadpool news.
Firstly, Director Tim Miller has revealed that there was a scene called Cancer World Tour that broke his heart to remove because it was so powerful but sadly it had to go because of time.
Speaking to Comicbook, the director said: “There’s a scene, in the script it was called ‘The Cancer World Tour,’ where Wade and Vanessa went around the world to try and find a cure to his cancer. They end the Cancer World Tour having lost hope in this really creepy, shyster clinic in Guadalajara, and this doctor is clearly a quack. And Wade kills him. And it’s this really emotional scene, and Vanessa witnesses it, and it’s the first time he’s really let the monster out, and she sees who he is. And he runs away from her because he’s so ashamed. And it was a really great scene, and Ryan fu#@ing crushed it. He just crushed it. He was so good, but it just didn’t work with the pacing of the movie so we cut it. It’s a really great scene.”
In other Deadpool news, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has spoken about Deadpool and gave his feelings on the movie: “The thing that ‘Deadpool’ shows is, when you present something unique to an audience, they will respond to it. When you present something as popular as a superhero character, in a different and unique and crazy way as they did in ‘Deadpool,’ it demands attention and audiences went to it.
“The other secret, and why it’s still a secret, I don’t know, but they just took what Deadpool is in the comics, He breaks the fourth wall. He talks into the camera. He doesn’t give a s@#t about any of the other heroes. He doesn’t take anything seriously. All of that is what made Deadpool so popular in the comics…. We’ve always said if there’s any ‘secret’ it’s respect the source material, understand the source material and then, any adaptation you make from the source material should be done only to enhance whatever the original pure spirit of the source material was. ‘Deadpool’ hit on all cylinders with that.
“They pulled it off. Tim Miller did a tremendous job. Tim and his writers and Ryan Reynolds were able to get that and even magnify that up on the big screen.”
It’s great to know that the man behind the MCU is able to open up and show love for FOX’s movie…
