    McAvoy: There was actually a scene in X-Men: First Class where we come up against somebody so dumb that I can't mind-bend him. We end up having a real deal fight with him, me and Magneto, because there was no metal in the room, either. And we just end up having a fight with this guy who was 7' 6" or something like that, it was hilarious. We kill him by shoving a bear's head over his head. It was weird. [...] we twisted it and broke his neck, and I said something like, "I couldn't bear that man." (laughs) It was a proper sort of ridiculous and fun as hell, but it was obviously silly and we cut it from the film.

Now believing they are just a family on vacation, the police officer leaves, giving Logan a ticket.

  • During the chase through the forest, there was a scene cut where Jonah, one of the X-23 children uses his puppet master like ability to take control of a Reavers body, instead of keeping him alive as a bodyguard he makes the mercenary shoot himself. This scene was cut due to Mangold not wanting to show too much power in the children because the audience would then wonder why they didn't help Logan fight X-24.

    Deadpool 2 
  • According to Rob Liefeld, the filmmakers had actually shot an entire fight scene between Black Tom and Deadpool on the convoy that ended up being cut for time.
