this joke from the first film was almost censored by Fox

And film that comes out is a real miracle involving a lot of different factors. Between the time when the scriptwriter offers his script and the final result, there is enough to make a very different film. As it concerns Dead Pool, it was rather complicated to get the producer to accept some of the most questionable jokes from character of Ryan Reynolds.

dead Pool : Too problematic a joke?

Despite the film’s success, the director of Dead Pool, Tim Miller Reveals Fox Wasn’t Confident About Movie Joke. Tim Miller made his directorial debut on the adaptation of the eponymous comic book from Marvel, with Ryan Reynolds unofficially taking over the reins of the character who previously appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverinebut with a much more faithful approach to the character, notably retaining his humor. A humor known to break the fourth wall and action scenes bloodier than each other. The film was loosely based on the Fox-owned Marvel Universe, namely the X Men. The film proved to be a critical and commercial success upon release, with press and fans praising Reynolds’ performances and loyalty to the comics, though others lament that his relationship with Death is gone.

dead Pool has also broken the record for the most profitable R-Rated film. He succeeded to Matrix Reloadedbut will be beaten a few years later by Joker. Behind this success hides an extremely long creation process, with multiple directors on whom Fox put pressure. Much of the production delays come from Fox. The latter interrupted pre-production on multiple occasions to request changes in the script. And one of the best replicas of dead Pool almost fell through as well. It is Tim Miller himself who talks about it, at the microphone of Corridor Crew in the last episode of their series VFX artists react. The guest discussed several of his previous projects, including Dead Pool, and how Fox wanted to change the script:

Fox attempted to cut some jokes. Especially one from the beginning of the film, when he faces minions on the bridge and counts his number of remaining bullets. At the end of the scene, he utters the phrase “I touch myself tonight” (I will touch myself tonight). It’s one of five jokes the former Fox management used to tell us “Well, that’s not funny. It needs to be removed from the script. When people first heard it at Comic-Con, and burst out laughing, I was like, “YES, I told you so. [à la Fox]“.

Dead Pool 3 : what will the Disney hero look like?

The trailer for the first film, which premiered at San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, was a huge hit and stood as the nail in the coffin of Fox’s creative control over its movies.. Because most of his predictions turned out to be wrong in what the public wanted from the film. We can even say that this joke saved the film from cancellation. At the time of Comic-Con, the film dead Pool was almost canceled by the Fox who only saw it as repeated confusion.

The film’s success allowed Fox to loosen its belt on film control to Deadpool 2. David Leitch became the director, and Tim Miller left the project due to creative differences. This second part will also be a great success. Concerns now shift to the third film, still with Reynolds producing and scripting, but this time under the Disney and Marvel banner. Many fans fear seeing their favorite character being sanitized by those running the MCU. Until September 6, 2024 to get to the bottom of it, fans can be happy. Wolverine will return in the film with Hugh Jackman in the role. The latter has also resumed training on purpose for the film!
