Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Julian Dennison revealed on the storybook teaser geared towards New Zealand audiences, Once Upon a Deadpool has more than 20 minutes of new footage. However, as we've heard before, any new scenes that were conceived by Ryan Reynolds and franchise writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick only involved the framing device that features Deadpool reading his own story to a kidnapped adult Fred Savage, in a nod to his childhood role in The Princess Bride. If you watch the full trailer for Once Upon a Deadpool, you'll see that there's a scene where the Merc with a Mouth addresses an old couple sitting on a bench and makes a reference to the sad opening sequence in Up. That's a scene not in the theatrical cut of Deadpool 2, but it is a deleted scene on the Blu-ray release. So it's likely that some of the deleted scenes from Deadpool 2 will make their way back into this version of the movie.
Fuck Wolverine. First he rides my coattails with the R-rating, and then, that hairy motherfucker ups the ante by dying. What a dick. Well, guess what, Wolvie? I'm dying in this one, too.
At the beginning of the film, Deadpool says he was on top of 2,000 gallons of gasoline. In fact, he laid on seven 55 gallon drums for a total of only 385 gallons, and several of the drums were labeled as kerosene. However Deadpool tends to exaggerate his statements and was just being dramatic.
The title doesn't appear following the opening credits.
The 'Super Duper Cut' of the film that was released on home video extends the theatrical edition with 15 minutes of added scenes, and includes some alternative material. The main changes include:
English, Cantonese, Spanish, Russian
