Remember that montage in Groundhogs Day where Bill Murry tries to kill himself in dozens of different ways simply to pass the time? It’s funny because he’s basically immortal, his immortality, however, comes with some pretty serious drawbacks. I guess powers to cheat death usually do.

A similar suicide montage based on immortality was shot but had to be axed from Deadpool 2. The revelation came when writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick participated in an “Ask Me Anything” appearance on Reddit. The Wrap reports:
A user named ace22nd posed to the duo: “Any jokes/gags you really wanted to do but couldn’t?”
“One thing we really wanted to see (and actually shot!) was a Deadpool suicide montage, where DP is trying to kill himself over and over in increasingly violent ways (drinking Drano, jumping into a polar bear enclosure), etc.,” they responded during the AMA. “You should be able to see it on the DVD!”
Deadpool 2 is still playing in theaters; check out the trailer and synopsis below.
Official Synopsis: Wisecracking mercenary Deadpool joins forces with three mutants — Bedlam, Shatterstar, and Domino — to protect a boy from the all-powerful Cable.
