Get ready for one long, hot steamy bout of sitting glued to your TV while other fun loving folks are on vacation. Deadpool is finally coming home on Blu-ray and DVD this Summer. The hit movie is arriving packed full of extras, too. Wade Wilson himself made this very important announcement this morning. And he even gave us an exciting look at what we can expect in the way of special features. This is what the Merc with the Mouth had to say about his impending arrival in the DVD discount bin at Big Lots later this year.
"Hold onto your chimichangas, folks. From Fox Home Entertainment, the studio that brought you all 3 Taken films, comes Deadpool, the block-busting, fourth-wall-breaking masterpiece about Marvel Comics' sexiest anti-hero: me! Go deep inside (I love that) my origin story. Typical stuff. Rogue experiment, accelerated healing powers, horrible disfigurement, red spandex, imminent revenge."
Directed by overpaid tool Tim Miller and starring God's perfect idiot Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool is a giddy slice of awesomeness. Ed Skrein, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller and Gina co-star in the biggest R-Rated movie of all-time. And it's packed with more twists than Deadpool's enemies' intestines. And it has more action than prom night. In just one word: Amazeballs!
On the upcoming Blu-ray, we're getting all of the deleted and extended scenes that were just too X-rated for theater screens. These come with optional audio commentary from director Tim Miller. There is a hilarious gag reel, but the safe word is not included! And there is an in-depth expose on how this team of filmmakers took Deadpool from the comics, to the screen, and back to the screen.
If that weren't enough, we're also getting an audio commentary with the voice of an angel, director Tim Miller and genius Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld. There is a second audio commentary with star Ryan Reynolds and the real heroes behind the movie, writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Rheese. There is no telling what is in Deadpool's fun sack, but Wade himself promises it's full of 'balls'.
Rounding out all the fun special features is a set of exclusive galleries. These feature never-before-seen concept art and storyboards. We get a better look at the costumes, along with an in-depth study of the pre-vis and stunt-vis. Deadpool promises that this particular section of the Blu-ray will give all you fetish hounds 'so much spandex'. How could you not buy this release on that endorsement alone?
Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Check out the Blu-ray cover art and special features image, and then pre-order your copy today at any fine online retailer. This is the only Blu-ray you'll need to buy this summer.
