Deadpool was a blockbuster that made all the money in the box office and was loved by pretty much everyone. The movie is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD and, along with its release, director Tim Miller has spoken about the film to spill the beans on an important deleted scene that he really wanted to see make the final cut. Speaking with, he said,

"There’s a scene, in the script it was called ‘The Cancer World Tour,’ where Wade and Vanessa went around the world to try and find a cure to his cancer.
They end the Cancer World Tour having lost hope in this really creepy, shyster clinic in Guadalajara, and this doctor is clearly a quack. And Wade kills him. And it’s this really emotional scene, and Vanessa witnesses it, and it’s the first time he’s really let the monster out, and she sees who he is.
He runs away from her because he’s so ashamed. And it was a really great scene, and Ryan f*cking crushed it. He just crushed it. He was so good, but it just didn’t work with the pacing of the movie so we cut it. It’s a really great scene.

So, the reason for not including this scene was because of pacing. That makes sense because Deadpool was praised for being a punchy, quick-witted movie that didn't carry any 'extra weight'. Having said that, we want to see this emotionally scene with our own eyes. The addition of this moment where Wade finally shows Vanessa who he is would be great to see, adding even more drama to the superhero comedy.

Even just hearing about this scene, which sounds like it would be fantastic to watch, has given us a deeper look into the psychology of Wade and his relationship with Vanessa. Deadpool was a great film, and I personally watched it four times in theaters. It was a movie that proved everyone that respecting the source material can make a success of stories that studios don't initially believe in.
