5. The James Bond Opening Titles Have Been Cut

Easily the most disappointing of all the movie's omissions from Deadpool 2's theatrical cut is the total deletion of the outrageously funny James Bond-spoofing opening titles sequence, slathered in glossy CGI and set to an overwrought Celine Dion song as it is.

This genuinely gorgeous and hysterically funny scene is sadly nowhere to be seen here, presumably for the sake of pacing and bringing the movie in at a reasonable 118 minutes.

Even so, it's hard to imagine few fans complaining about sticking around for a square two hours with this spectacular opening being included.
