With the new trailer for Once Upon A Deadpool seeing release I thought I’d break down everything that you need to know about the upcoming film’s release.
I’ve compiled all of the information that I could find on the film to let you know before you go in, what to expect.
There may be slight spoilers here so if you don’t want to know anything yet then I suggest that you leave the site now.
For everyone else, I’m Deffinition and welcome to the channel where I ruin it so you don’t have to!
Once Upon A Deadpool Explained
Ok so the first thing that you should know about Once Upon A Deadpool is that it is a recut of Deadpool 2 in order to fit a PG-13 rating. Ryan Reynolds stated this was because Fox have been asking for a PG-13 version of the character for a long time and that the studio were willing to pay a large amount of the proceedings to charity.
The film features 8 new scenes with some that massively pay homage to The Princess Bride. This is why Fred Savage stars at the main person playing off the Merc with a mouth. Savage was the original star of The Princess Bride so it makes sense to cast him here.
The film is set as a bedtime story, with Deadpool recounting the details to Savage as we listen to events play out.
The movie is rumoured to be Disney’s way of testing the water for how they will move forward in incorporating the character into their MCU franchise. The movie is also set to release in China which I believe that Deadpool 2 did not.
It makes a lot of sense to do this as this market was missed and obviously holds a lot of weight in the foreign market.
So no, we won’t be getting a totally new film and those who already own the Super Duper Cut of Deadpool 2 may see this as a waste of money, but hey, it’s for charity so I guess it’s not all bad.
So, what are your thoughts on Once Upon A Deadpool? Are you excited to see the film and will you be revisiting theatres upon it’s release?
