Deadpool 2: X-Tra Dead [Fanedit]

It’s Deadpool 2 as you know and love it, just with a little bit more added to it.

Featuring guest appearances from Celine Dion, an additional cameo from James Mcavoy, quick cameos from a trio of other musicians I’m too out-of-touch to know the names off by heart, use of footage from the “No Good Deed” mini-sode and an alternative end credits sequence.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix: Dark Stand [Fanedit]

dpdslog

It took a few cracks, but I did it…I made Dark Phoenix work with X-Men: The Last Stand, to function as a third in the trilogy that began with Days of Future Past and continued with Apocalypse.

Cut List

-Film begins with the first fifty-four minutes of Dark Phoenix, only without the aliens popping up

-The DP footage comes to an end when Teen Jean departs Magneto’s island, from there Last Stand footage begins with the Danger Room sequence (because it has the line “the not too distant future” at the start to indicate the passage of time)

-Scott’s PTSD over Jean is now repurposed. Instead of seeing her drown, he sees her absorb the Phoenix force in space. Scott departs the X-Mansion to clear his head (we know he returns in DOFP’s final scene so we’re good)

-Logan knows of Jean in this timeline as a continuity nod to their meeting in X-Men Apocalypse. There is no romantic connection between them this time.

-Beast’s visit to the X-Mansion in the present day is now much more formal due to the tension between Hank and Charles in the past. Exchange with Logan shortened

-Instead of seeking out Mystique, Magneto seeks out Jean.

-Xavier ‘sensing’ Jean at the lake moved to after Magneto and Jean have a conversation at Magneto’s base camp. Blackbird arrives at the lake and Logan storms the camp looking for Jean. Gets involved in fights.

-Film proceeds apace, Magneto and his forces attack Alcatraz, X-Men suit up to stop them. We see Warren Worthington, but he has more of a mystery about him, now he’s just a student at Xavier’s school wanting a piece of the action and help out where he can.

-Logan and Jean’s meeting from X-Men Apocalypse inserted into his final battle with Phoenix. Memories of this allows Jean to regain control and beg Logan to save her. He stabs her.

-Jean is only wounded, not killed. We see her back at the mansion being tended to by Xavier. Teen Jean voice-over about evolution plays over Jean’s comatose body as Logan watches her. We’re led to believe Jean will recover and reunite with Scott, which we see in the final scenes of Days of Future Past.

-Last Stand ending is as normal. Post-credit scene removed (Xavier doesn’t die, so no need for it), Last Stand end credits used throughout because I’m too lazy to merge it with DP credits.

X-Men: Dead Phoenix [Fanedit]

X Men Dead Phoenix

Months back, clickbait merchants and rumour mongers were keen to share news that there would be some kind of Deadpool connection in the ill-fated Dark Phoenix movie. While this somewhat manifested a year earlier in Deadpool 2 with the X-Men’s cameo in that film, there was no surprise cameo from Wade for this.

So while binging both movies I worked out a way of integrating several choice scenes from Deadpool 2 into a cut of Dark Phoenix that gives the movie not just something that brings two well received X-Film franchises together (and yes, the fact both of these films have the same initials in their titles doesn’t escape me), but also provides closure to the series that doesn’t corrupt the timeline the way the original version of Dark Phoenix did, and also sets up a hypothetical fifth film in the First Class timeline to show the saga of the X-Men really ought to have continued.

Two other minor tweeks aside, I left the rest of the movie alone

Cut List

-Added FANEDIT.ORG Logo to beginning

-Cut the ‘X-Women’ lines from Raven

-Integrated the Deadpool and Colossus scene from Deadpool 2 where the X-Men narrowly avoid being seen by Wade

-Just after we meet the aliens , I Integrated the scene where Colossus tries to persuade Wade into joining the team on a mission, with Wade saying bad things will happen, this leads directly into the scene the X-Men first confront Jean and Raven is killed

-End credits feature a very special performance of Celine Dion’s ‘Ashes’ from Deadpool 2

-Deadpool uses Cable’s time device to change history and undo the events of the film.

-Post-credits is Cable time-jumping from the future to the present to set that part up. The saga continues
