Controversial 'Deadpool 2' Scene That Was Cut From End Credits Has Been Leaked

The Deadpool films aren't exactly the superhero flicks you'd want to sit a two-year-old down with, given that they're laced with profanities and adult humour - though it's this grown-up twist on the superhero format that arguably makes them all the better.

However, before the second movie was released, rumourswere circling that there was a deleted final that proved too controversial even for Deadpool, which saw our red-and-black clad protagonist meet an infant Adolt Hitler.

Well, now that offending scene has been leaked, tying in with the release of the extended cut of Deadpool 2:

Mind you, it seems people haven't been finding it quite as controversial as movie bosses had feared.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Deadpool killing baby Hitler is a thing and I find it hilarious."

"The baby Hitler scene cut from Deadpool 2 was released.....they should have left it in!!!!"

In the scene, we see Wade Wilson walk up to the cot where baby Hitler's lying, before considering the moral implications of killing him. Sure, it would involve saving many lives, but also killing a baby.

Eventually we learn that he didn't go through with it, and instead confirms that he'll leave the dirty deed to Josh Brolin's Cable - who we know has the bottle, as he's tried to kill a child before.

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Reynolds confessed that they had been a little unsure about how well it would go down.

"I always loved it, because it created the same debate in our edit room as it does in the streets of the world," he said.

"It was debated back and forth, and over and over again. We were all a little nervous about it, wondering 'Is it too much?' None of us could come to a consensus on how to handle it, so our final decision was to just not handle it, to just not put it in the movie."

He added: "We cut it out partially for time, but also to give us something really fun to add into the coda of the DVD."

Director David Leitch also told Esquire that they eventually had to go with their gut.

"When we got into post and we had to trim it down we started to have to have our own gut checks about what jokes are in and what jokes are out," he said.

"There was a pretty close consensus for what should stay and what should go. Some of them we may see in different incarnations of the film or in the Blu-Ray, but we're pretty happy with where it all landed."

And, of course, one of the scenes that didn't make the cut was that one with Baby Hitler.

"I would say there are some things that are really funny and people will go, 'Holy crap, they went there'," he says.

"We'll leave that to be seen on the Blu-ray."

Only time will tell...
