Deadpool 2 Releases Wacky Dolly Parton-Sung Announcement Video For Film's Super Duper Cut

Just when you thought Wade Wilson couldn't get any weirder...

Despite Deadpool 2 having touched down in theaters back in May, the superhero sequel made a special appearance at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend. As part of 20th Century Fox's presentation there, the studio unveiled a delightfully bizarre video to promote the upcoming release of Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut — a stretched-out, bonus feature-filled version of the film that packs in 15 minutes of never-before-seen footage. 

Set to the sweet, Southern accent-twinged stylings of Dolly Parton's "Nine to Five," the promo video features Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool dancing with his new Super Duper Band members Gorilla, Mouse, and Bear — who all sport the same X-Men shirt he did in the follow-up film. Vanisher's there too, but he only appears as a backpack floating in midair. 

The whole thing is very The Country Bears meets Chuck E. Cheese meets the mutant movie world, its purposefully terrible 1980s graphics contributing to its bizarre feel. Check it out above.

This actually isn't the first time Deadpool has proven his love for famous songstresses via promotional clips. To tease the release of Deadpool 2, Fox rolled out a hilarious music video for "Ashes," an exclusive sequel track sung by Celine Dion. While the Merc with a Mouth poured his soul into a rousing interpretive dance, Dion belted out a powerful message meant to reflect Deadpool's magnetic personality that remained in tact after his face got mangled up in a fire: "Let beauty come out of ashes."

So, Fox used Dolly Parton's hit single in a loopy music video to promote Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut — but what exactly does the extended version of the film feature? Certainly not Wade leading a band of animatronic animals, right? 

Well, according to Syfy's Josh Weiss, who attended the San Diego Comic-Con screening of The Super Duper Cut, the new version of the movie includes a "suicide montage" in which Wade gets eaten by a polar bear, later downs a full bottle of toxic drain cleaner, and then jumps off a building when neither of those attempts are successful. 

In any other situation and state of mind, Wade's invincibility comes in handy, but when he sees no reason to live without his recently murdered girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), it's a source of frustration. The anti-hero finally chooses to set off an explosive and blow himself to smithereens inside his and Vanessa's apartment.

But that's not all: Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut also includes that Deadpool-kills-baby-Hitler scene that was scrapped from the credits of the theatrical version. The sequence sees Deadpool traveling back in time to waltz into an Austrian hospital and smother the infant Hitler. For obvious reasons, the camera cuts to black before showing the actual strangulation, and the credits then roll on. 

Since we don't know for sure if a third Deadpool movie will actually happen, consuming any and all Deadpool 2-related material we can get our hands on isn't so much a desire as it is a requirement. Thankfully, Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut is only a few weeks away. Pick up the extended version of the sequel on DVD/Digital on August 7 and on Blu-ray on August 21.
