‘Deadpool 2’ Cut Scene Is Playing Before ‘Logan’ Showings

Fox is already teasing footage from “Deadpool 2” before showings of Hugh Jackman’s “Logan” with a typically irreverent scene that pokes fun at Superman.

The scene involves Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds’ character when he’s not in the squeaky tight Deadpool costume) spotting a guy in trouble outside a screening of “Logan” and going into a phone booth to get suited and booted — he moons the audience in the meantime — while the epic Superman theme blares in the background. The guy dies, however, by the time he’s done changing.

“What is a phone booth doing on a street corner?” Deadpool wonders in one of his trademark fourth wall breaks, before resting his head on the dead man’s body and stealing his Cherry Garcia ice cream.

Fox had no comment on the teaser, but a source told Variety that the footage is from a cut scene.

Instead of mentioning the release date, the teaser says “not soon enough.” The actual debut date for “Deadpool 2” is in a year’s time — March 2, 2018. “John Wick” director David Leitch came on to direct “Deadpool 2” last fall after Tim Miller dropped out due to creative differences with Reynolds.

After video of the teaser leaked online, Ryan Reynolds posted the clip on his YouTube page.

      What the hell is wrong with you? I take it you have absolutely no sense of humor and hate the world, yourself and everything.

    Not all showings be aware, I watched it and work at a movie theatre ours showing do not have the dead pool scene. From what I’ve gathered it’s only at the big market cities.
