Deadpool is completely self-aware, so the dude knows his movie is awesome. We don’t have to reassure him. And now that the film earned $12.7 million on Thursday night, which The Hollywood Reporter reports is the biggest preview number ever for an R-rated film, it looks like we don’t have to tell you either.

That being said, The Huffington Post recently chatted with “Deadpool” writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (“Zombieland”) about some of the movie’s secrets, and here are some of the things even the Merc with a Mouth probably isn’t aware of:

  1. 1 They did want Wolverine in the film.


    Deadpool" features a number of Wolverine references, so we asked if they ever had thoughts of actually getting a cameo.

    "Yeah, I mean we’re always dreaming big, but the way it turned out we couldn’t have been happier," says Wernick. "Hugh’s seen the movie and loved the movie we’ve heard. Obviously, he and Ryan are very close friends, and who knows what happens in the future? We would love to bring Hugh and Wolverine into 'Deadpool's' universe, at least for a brief moment. That would be a dream come true."

    He adds, "They were together in 'X Men Origins: Wolverine.' Not exactly as anyone had hoped [laugh], but we at some point may be able to fix that.

  2. 2 Deadpool could have a boyfriend in future movies.


    Ryan Reynolds is all for honoring Deadpool's pansexual comic-book background, and the writers say they're "open to everything" for the character.

    So will Deadpool have a boyfriend?

    "Only time will tell. I think the most important thing is we did try with this movie to honor Deadpool's pansexual nature in the comics. I think you only see hints of it in this first movie, but who knows what the future will hold? I just think we have to be open to everything and to honor the history of the character," says Reese., and the writers say they're "open to everything" for the character.

  3. 3 Deadpool kills an evil doctor in a deleted scene.


    The Deadpool DVD isn't just going to be full of all the improvised lines that got cut. Reese tells us there's an "a big sequence of the movie" where Deadpool goes to Mexico to visit a cancer clinic and ends up killing the evil doctor who works there.

    "That, we actually shot and didn't make the film, so you'll probably see that in the deleted scenes," says Reese.

  4. 4 Iconic characters also had to be cut or melded into one.


    Reese tells us many characters had to be combined based on the budget.

    "There were three villains, Sluggo, Garrison Kane and Wire, who were melded into Angel Dust (Gina Carano), and then we had a bartender at Sister Margaret's Bar named Patch who was melded into Weasel (T.J. Miller). So I think we had to consolidate more than anything," says Reese.

  5. 5 Ryan Reynolds' "X-Men" joke was totally true.


    Deadpool jokes in the movie that he only sees two X-Men because the studio couldn't afford more. Wernick laughs, "That’s actually true, so, yes, we always had to keep budget in mind."
