After slaying the box office in February, ‘Deadpool’ is coming to Blu-Ray, DVD, VOD and digital on May 10, 2016. As we already know, director Tim Miller allowed the cast, including Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller, to ad lib a huge chunk of dialogue, from which Miller and editor Julian Clarke culled the best bits for the final movie. But already, we’ve seen alternate takes used in various trailers and Miller has discussed the plethora of deleted scenes that he hopes to include on the home video release. (Just don’t expect a director’s cut, as Miller already nixed that idea.)
With the home video release just a month away, one deleted scene has been released, featuring a musical montage of Deadpool, hanging out in Weasel’s bar and killing people, set to Teamheadkick’s “Deadpool Rap” which was originally recorded for the 2013 ‘Deadpool’ video game, then reworked for the film.
Though there is no dialogue (therefore no cursing) or nudity, this may still be considered NSFW, so proceed with caution if you’re at work:
