“Deadpool 2” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick invited Marvel fans to ask them anything on Friday, and the Reddit community didn’t disappoint.

A user named ace22nd posed to the duo: “Any jokes/gags you really wanted to do but couldn’t?”

“One thing we really wanted to see (and actually shot!) was a Deadpool suicide montage, where DP is trying to kill himself over and over in increasingly violent ways (drinking Drano, jumping into a polar bear enclosure), etc.,” they responded during the AMA. “You should be able to see it on the DVD!”

In case you’re not a fan, Wade Wilson — Deadpool’s public alter-ego — can’t really die due to his accelerated healing factor superpower. Or at the very least, he’s pretty damn hard to kill, try as Cable (Josh Brolin) might.

On Friday, the Twentieth Century Fox film set a new box office record for an R-rated movie opening.

Back to that whole “suicide montage” thing for a second — where have we seen that before?

Oh, yeah:
