Like some other major blockbuster movies in recent years, Deadpool 2 received an extended cut on home video, which includes a host of alternate, extended, and deleted scenes that weren't in the theatrical version. In this particular case, and in keeping with the character's unique comedy style, the Deadpool 2 extended version is called the Super Duper $@%!#& Cut (or just the Super Duper Cut), and it contains an additional 15 minutes of unseen footage, much of which is devoted to elaborating on dialogue, providing backstory for certain characters, and deepening the relationship between the main superheroes.
The Deadpool 2 Super Duper Cut is something that director David Leitch has been teasing for quite some time, and it was first officially unveiled at a special screening during San Diego Comic-Con 2018 earlier this summer. And now, it has made its way onto home video. While there's certainly a lot for fans to peruse through and enjoy, it can be difficult to identify the exact additions and changes, which is why Screen Rant has taken the time to compile each and every change between the theatrical and the extended versions. But first, let's run through the Super Duper Cut's biggest changes.

Deadpool's Suicide Montage
Shortly after Deadpool 2 hit theaters, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick did an AMA on Reddit, discussing and revealing secrets about the project. One of the things they revealed was that they had written and actually filmed a suicide montage for Wade Wilson, but it didn't make it into the theatrical cut. However, they did reveal that it would be included on the home video release - and it has been. In the regular version, after visiting Blind Al, Deadpool goes back home and blows himself up. But in the Super Duper Cut, he attempts two more suicides (a little after the 23-minute mark in the extended version).
It starts off with Deadpool at the zoo and with him going up to a child and saying, "Precious, aren't they?" while looking at the polar bears. The child responds, "Woah! Are you a superhero?" Deadpool says, "F**king A, sweetie." The child: "What's your name?" Deadpool: "Captain Delicious Pants." She then looks at her father and asks, "Who's Captain Delicious Pants?" That's when Deadpool runs and jumps into the polar bear enclosure and gets eaten alive.
Since that didn't work, Deadpool's next attempt was to fall off a skyscraper after drinking Clog Clear. In the scene, he dances along the edge and then falls off the roof. A group of people then gather around him when he hits the ground. One woman says, "I can't believe he's still alive." Deadpool responds, "I can't believe you left the house in that shirt." Then, it cuts to the barrel scene inside his apartment, which is in the theatrical cut. But, in the extended version, Deadpool says, "There's gotta be some way to die. I just need to die harder. Trademark Fox. Y'all caught up now?" For those that don't know, the Die Hard movie franchise is also owned by 20th Century Fox.
Deadpool 2's Time-Traveling Credits Scenes
One of the best things about Deadpool 2 was its mid-credits sequence in which Wade Wilson uses Cable's time-traveling device to right all the wrongs of the past, including such things as saving the X-Force team from their unfortunate deaths, fixing Deadpool's first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and preventing Ryan Reynolds from starring in the Green Lantern movie. The film's mid-credits scenes are perhaps the best ones ever made, but they weren't entirely complete. The Super Duper Cut adds a couple bits of dialogue to a few of the scenes while also tacking on a whole new one at the end.
In the X-Force credits scene, right after Deadpool tells Peter to walk away, saying, "Nope! We're not [X-Force]," he adds, "X-Force is just a marketing tool designed by Fox executives to keep Josh Brolin employed. It doesn't exist." Everything else before and after that was the same. Then, in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine credits scene, a big chunk of dialogue was added in. In between saying he's cleaning up the timelines and that he loves Wolverine, Deadpool also says, "Look, eventually, you're going to hang up the claws and it's going to make a lot of people very sad...But one day, your old pal Wade's gonna ask you to get back in the saddle again. And when he does, say yes."
Of course, the big addition here is the Hitler sequence. It's split into two parts - the first half in the mid-credits scene and the second-half at the very end of the credits - and shows Deadpool attempting to kill a baby Adolf Hitler. Preventing Hitler from becoming a dictator by killing him as an infant is one of the most common thoughts and questions when it comes to time travel, and so it makes sense that it was something Deadpool wanted to do - or, at least, attempt to do. In the scene, he struggles with killing Hitler, so he says that he'll get Cable because he has a way with kids.
