In less than a month Deadpool has become a vulgar, violent, and unequivocal worldwide phenomenon. Wade Wilson’s first solo adventure as Deadpool has shattered R-rated box office records, helped Ryan Reynolds put adult-oriented comic book characters back on the map, and turned the character of Deadpool into a household name. As it turns out, we now know when you will be able to take Wade Wilson home with you personally on Blu-Ray.
According to Amazon, the Deadpool Blu-Ray release has officially been confirmed for May 20, 2016. Considering that’s a little more than three months after the movie’s theatrical release date, we have to say that’s probably a fairly standard announcement. The Blu-Ray box for the landmark comic book movie looks quintessentially Deadpool, showcasing the hero wielding his big gun and giving the audience a nice, clear shot right at his junk.
Although this announcement has us beyond excited, it doesn’t provide us with a great deal of insight regarding any of the film’s Blu-Ray special features. Considering the long and arduous journey it was to get Deadpool on the silver screen, we really can’t wait to see the sorts of behind the scenes featurettes and commentary that the film will provide home audiences with.
That being said, don’t expect the home Blu-Ray edition of Deadpool to actually run longer or feature more graphic content than the theatrical version. Behind the scenes special features are one thing, but those involved with the production of Deadpool have already made it abundantly clear that the home release of the movie will not include a Director’s Cut of the film. Considering just how much craziness they actually got away with in the final version of the movie, we don’t think we’re in any position to start complaining about that revelation.
We love this announcement so much, but just remember one very important thing: you can still catch the Merc with the Mouth’s first utterly badass adventure in theaters, so be sure to check it out on the silver screen while you still can. We will bring you all of the latest and greatest information related to the upcoming release of the Deadpool Blu-Ray as it becomes available to us. Mark you calendars, because we have a feeling hordes of people will flock to Amazon for the Deadpool Blu-Ray on May 20 when it goes on sale.
