Though I didn’t like the Deadpool films myself, for some reason they’re hugely popular, and it seems that Deadpool 2 will soon be even more popular because a ‘PG-13’ version is being created that will be in cinemas and which will remove the less kid-friendly material. And news has recently come in that it will also contain some new footage. Said screenwriter Paul Wernick to ‘/Film’:
“We definitely shot new stuff. And recently too. After Deadpool 2 came out and we were all sitting around, we came to it less about the idea of let’s make a PG-13 movie and more, ‘Let’s talk a little bit about Deadpool.’ We were kicking around some ideas and then I think it was Ryan [Reynolds] who had the great framing device and we all got excited and went to the studio. They said, ‘Yeah, let’s do it. Fire up the cameras.’ About two months ago we were out on soundstages shooting again. Ryan was in the suit and the gang was back together, Dave Leitch and Ryan and us having a great time and laughing. It comes together great so we’re super excited about it.”
“We don’t want to mislead nor do we want to spoil. As we get closer, we’ll see what the studio will let us talk about. I wouldn’t reveal too much about it because it’ll ruin the fun for the audience.”
We don’t know yet which other cast members joined Reynolds in filming new scenes, though apparently the story isn’t changed by the new scenes.
