2016 was a wild year in cinema, full of gigantic let-downs and stunning surprises alike, and while it certainly wasn't a banner year for film by any means, it doesn't meant there weren't some awesome stories, tidbits and anecdotes from the year's biggest productions.

From insane behind-the-scenes stories to near-miss casting picks, insane stunts and the unbelievable lengths people go to in order to get into character, the year didn't want for craziness even if only some of it paid off with satisfying end results.

15. Deadpool Originally Had An Amy Winehouse Joke

20th Century Fox

The film then reportedly ended with Winehouse getting splattered by a bus, and Deadpool quipping to the camera, "And you would have thought it would be an overdose."

Of course, this was written before Winehouse's untimely death in 2011 and ditched soon thereafter, because as distasteful as the final movie is, a gag that openly mocked a beloved, troubled entertainer probably would've been a step too mean.
