The blooper and gag reel for Fox’s Deadpool is released online. Deadpool was the smash hit of 2016, and the film that put Fox’s X-Men universe back on the map. The long-awaited R-rated film seemed to revitalize the franchise, opening the door to more dark, adult-oriented movies like Logan, TV shows like Legion, and the upcoming Deadpool 2.
The sequel may not be out until next year, and the DVD was released last year, but Deadpool fans can now enjoy a little something to get them through to Deadpool 2 in 2018. The gag reel for the film, originally released on the DVD, has now been released online for fans to watch in all its hilarious glory.
The Gag Reel/Blooper Reel was posted by JoBlo Movie Trailers, giving fans six and a half minutes of Ryan Reynolds and his co-stars being hilarious on set. In addition to Reynolds, Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), TJ Miller (Weasel), Karan Soni (Dopinder), Gina Carano (Angel Dust), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead) and Ed Skrein (Ajax) appear, among others.
The gag reel includes missed stunts, ad-libbed lines, and some particularly hilarious moments when Reynolds and Baccarin are filming their sex scenes. The gag reel was originally released as a special feature on the DVD, but this is the first time that it has been made available for anyone to watch, so plenty of fans who didn’t buy the DVD or Blu-ray are going to want to check it out.
The reel doesn’t reveal much of anything in terms of deleted scenes, and instead concentrates on showing bloopers, outtakes, and moments where the cast (and especially Reynolds and Miller) are trying out different versions of a single line before finding the one that eventually made it into the movie. Some of these even get a little bit brutal – like when Reynolds is trying out different ways of insulting Carano during a scene set in the Weapon X lab. By the end of this section of the gag reel, Carano may be laughing but she also calls him out.
Despite the fact that this doesn’t reveal anything cut from the film in terms of plot, it’s always hilarious to see Reynolds putting his heart and soul into this character, and the gag reel is just as funny as the movie itself, or as the many marketing videos that Fox made featuring Reynolds. It also provides a little look at how some of the scenes were shot, as the reel is (obviously) not finished off with CGI or any other effects.
