Speculation over whether fans will be able to see any excess footage from Deadpool has been rife online over the past few days, with Reynolds now confirming in a new interview that there might be enough for an alternate version
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, the actor said: “I can actually tell you right now there will be, there’s too much footage – too much stuff that we love, and we had to make choices, and that’s just the nature of the beast. But yeah, we have enough for a few sequels, probably!”
Over its opening weekend, Deadpool grossed $135 million (£93.3 million), smashing the previous record of $91.8 million (£63.4 million) set by The Matrix Reloaded in 2003.
Deadpool also scored the best ever opening by any film in the month of February, surpassing the previous high of $85.2 million (£58.9 million) set by last year’s Fifty Shades of Grey.
