Tim Miller on the Deleted Scenes That Were Too Vulgar Even for R-Rated Deadpool
Since giving the go-ahead for an R-rated movie, the people behind Deadpool have fully embraced the freedom that such a rating allows. From the hilarious marketing material to their decidedly R-rated panel at San Diego Comic Con, the entire cast and crew simply seem to be having a blast with this movie. But in a new interview, director Tim Miller revealed that they have had to delete some scenes that were considered "too vulgar" even for an R-Rated Deadpool movie.

When asked about the DVD extras at a fan event in LA, Miller goes into some detail about the scenes that were cut from the theatrical release, revealing that you should probably never give Ryan Reynolds and T.J Miller the opportunity to write their own scenes.

Opening quote
There was a bunch of stuff, honestly, an extended version [of a fight with] a couple more beats of violence there that I liked. In particular, there was a bar scene that was too vulgar for even the R-rated Deadpool. 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.

T.J. Miller elaborated on the making of that particular scene.

Opening quote
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
Closing quote

Frankly, I'm more curious than ever to see exactly what Reynolds and T.J cooked, up, and if it's anything like the 'horse-loving' shenanigans they mused on in Hall H last year, it's going to be a real treat. Unfortunately, Ryan Reynolds has already said that we wouldn't be getting to witness T.J and Ryan's work in the DVD extras, which makes sense, because if it's offensive enough to be pulled from an R-Rated movie, it's probably too offensive to watch in your own home.

Deadpool is released on February 12th, and recently received rave reviews from those attending its first screening, with some calling it the best Marvel adaptation so far.
