Now that Sony Pictures has teamed with Marvel Studios to share Spider-Man, allowing him to enter the Marvel cinematic universe alongside the Avengers, fans have been hoping that a deal might be in the cards for more crossovers with characters that Marvel doesn’t own right now.

However, it sounds like Deadpool director Tim Miller is doing everything he can to build some bridges in order to potentially allow a Deadpool Spider-Man crossover on the big screen. Read More »

Judging by Deadpool‘s stunning $756 million box office total, just about everyone who wants to see the Merc with a Mouth lead his own feature film, already has. But if you want to see even more of the charmingly irreverent antihero, you’ll get your chance in a few short weeks when he hits home video.
To give you a little taste of the extras in store, 20th Century Fox has revealed a brand-new deleted scene showing Deadpool getting up to his usual antics: beating up bad guys, hanging out at the bar, celebrating the holidays… and indulging in lots and lots of self-pleasure. Because obviously any montage involving Deadpool is going to be super duper NSFW. Watch the Deadpool deleted scene below.
