Deadpool 2 home release on Digital HD offers audiences a first look at an extended version of the movie that includes deleted scenes, commentary from the makers and even more post-credits scenes. The Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut was first officially unveiled at a special screening during San Diego Comic-Con 2018 last month.
One of the post-credit scenes that did not make it to the final theatrical release showed the Merc with the Mouth traveling back in time to kill Adolf Hitler as a baby. Now the said scene has been released online. You can check out the clip below.
The scene in question was supposed to be a part of the post-credits collection where Deadpool travels back in time to undo the death of his lady love Vanessa and prevent Ryan Reynolds from starring in the Green Lantern movie.
During a previous interview with Comicbook.com, Deadpool 2 writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese explained why they ultimately decided to cut the baby Hitler scene from the film.
“I think it was cut just because, it was at the very, very end, and it left the audience with this, ‘Oh?’ It’s like, ‘Sure, it’s baby Hitler, but it is a baby. It’s kind of weird to watch that!‘” Wernick said. “Instead, the post-credits scenes attached to Deadpool 2 are some of its most hilarious and un-missable moments which definitely won’t be stirring up the controversy such a scene might have.”
Wernick also chimed in saying Deadpool has a line that they can’t cross.
“Baby killing might be that line,” Reese concluded.
During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Reynolds also talked about the baby killing scene revealing it was one of his favorites.
“I always loved it, because it created the same debate in our edit room as it does in the streets of the world,” the Deadpool 2 actor said. “It was debated back and forth, and over and over again. We were all a little nervous about it, wondering, ‘Is it too much?’ None of us could come to a consensus on how to handle it, so our final decision was to just not handle it, to just not put it in the movie. We cut it out partially for time, but also to give us something really fun to add into the coda of the DVD.”
Deadpool 2 is releasing on Blu-ray and DVD on August 21.
