Not being one to be left behind, the Merc With a Mouth is returning to the big screen this December with a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 in order to compete with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Aquaman. Why? Because he can.
If you’re not entirely convinced on seeing the film, again, the film’s writing team, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have just revealed that they recently shot extra footage for the film.
Talking to Slashfilm, the pair revealed the process:
“We definitely shot new stuff,” Wernick said. “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 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.’ 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.”
Of course, neither Reese or Wernick were able to reveal exactly what those new scenes were, but the fact the studio was willing to do more filming means it was probably a really fun idea, or ideas.
They also continued to stress that even with the PG-13 rating, this is not a “kiddie version” of Deadpool 2. “I think it’s going to be a real joy not only [to] a whole new audience but also an audience that has seen and loved the Deadpool movies.”
