Deadpool's Blu-Ray Special Features Revealed

It’s only been a little over two months since Deadpool was released in theaters, and in that time it’s made its mark as a critical and commercial success. With the interim between theatrical release and home media release having dwindled for movies in recent years, fans will be able to own the Merc with the Mouth’s spinoff in less than a month, and now you can check out what special features you’ll receive when you buy the Blu-ray.


The Deadpool Twitter account posted this fun picture earlier today of all the extra you’ll get when you add Deadpool to your collection. A lot of this is the typical goodies you can expect from blockbuster home media releases, albeit with some unusual edits from Deadpool himself. Deleted scenes, a commentary with director Tim Miller (a.k.a. "the voice of an angel") and creator Rob Liefeld (a.k.a. "God"), a gag reel without the safe word, galleries featuring plenty of spandex and more. Then there’s Deadpool’s Fun Sack. Uh…what’s in the sack, Wade? You wrote "balls," but I can’t help worrying that it’s really full of severed heads.

Wade Wilson made his cinematic debut in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but aside from about five minutes of an unmasked Wade making wisecracks, that version was poorly received by fans and critics for being turned into Weapon XI. A more faithful spinoff was intended to be released, but the movie subsequently lingered in development hell for years. It was only thanks to animated test footage being leaked online in 2014 that the movie was finally put into production, and almost two years later, his solo movie has received almost universal acclaim and you’ll soon be able to own it for yourself.

Just like in the comics, Deadpool followed Wade Wilson, a mercenary who finds out he has incurable cancer. With no other options, he joined a secret program that offered to cure his cancer, and while the experiment triggered his latent mutant genes and gave him a healing factor, it also left him disfigured. Left for dead, Wade used his combat skills and penchant for fourth ball breaking to seek revenge against the man that wrecked his face. Along with supporting characters like Vanessa, Weasel and Blind Al, the movie also included appearances from Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead to connect to the X-Men, though their mission to convince Wade Wilson to become a hero didn’t go quite as planned.

Deadpool will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 10, and Deadpool 2 has been officially greenlit by 20th Century Fox, with Ryan Reynolds, Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning. No release date has been set for that feature yet, but we’ll keep you updated on any developments concerning Wade Wilson’s next chaotic adventure.
