Tim Miller Teases Vulgar Deleted Scene From Deadpool
Deadpool has been officially rated R due to the language, sexual content and gruesome action scenes involved. However, apparently some things are even too much for an R rating which Tim Miller found out whilst filming with Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson) and T.J. Miller (Weasel).
When asked about whether he had to cut scenes out of the movie by ComicBook.com, Miller replied:
"There was a bunch of stuff, honestly. “One fight has an extended version [with] a couple more beats of violence there that I liked," he said. There's also a bar scene that had to be cut down - because Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller are vulgar, vulgar people.
"That bar scene was particularly mean and offensive to a lot of people because T.J. and Ryan got together and wrote a version of the scene that we just said, 'Oh my God, this is too far.' I mean there were so many people offended it would have really been - we couldn't do it. It was just mean and so I said, 'No. We don't have to do that.'"
Depending on how offensive the scene was, which by the sounds of it is quite a lot, will determine whether it features on the DVD extras.
Speaking about the scene, T.J. Miller said:
“We did kind of go back and forth and it just got more and more hateful. Ryan’s a very, very good improvisor, and he's very funny and, like, one of the sweetest guys. It was very... heavy duty.
"There were some riffs that I don't think - 'You look like a trucker took a shit on your shoulders and then shaped ears onto it. So it's like, we're missing some of those things.
"It was a little worse than that," the director Miller said, "He's being gentle."
We’ve seen some of these lines in the trailer such as ‘you look like an avocado had sex with an older avocado’ and apparently T.J. had more lines then they could handle. Tim has said that there came a point when they had to tell him to stop and he simply kept asking for more and more takes because he had more jokes, all of them funny.
Some lucky fans have already seen the movie due to a special screening in LA. The comic book creator and founder of Image Comics Rob Liefeld was part of that special audience.
“This is my second time seeing it and it was even better than the first time,” Liefeld said (via. ComicBook.com). “That sounds like something Deadpool would say, but, here’s the deal: twenty-five years worth of Deadpool. This movie comes out twenty-five years to the day we published him at Marvel and you couldn’t get a better gift if you’re a Deadpool fan and I have seen twenty-five years of stories come and go – and Rhett [Reese] and Paul [Wernick] will tell you – back in 2009 I freaked out when I read the screenplay because Deadpool has never ever been better than he was in that screenplay and when I saw this movie six weeks ago I was like, ‘How much of this script will carry?’ and what you just saw is the best version of Deadpool I have ever experienced in my life.
"Ryan [Reynolds], Paul [Wernick], Rhett [Reese], Tim [Miller], Simon [Kinberg] - the entire team - T.J. [Miller] - I mean, that movie is fantastic and, yeah, I’m supposed to be at home writing, but I wouldn’t be up here taking the shots and - what Rhett said - for seven years, droning on Twitter and encourage you guys to not give up the fight if this movie wasn’t as great as it is and it is - it’s fantastic.”
