In a world of “I-need-it-now” and instant gratification, nothing set my alarms off then finding out that there was a SECOND post-credits scene in Deadpool that wasn’t shown to the early viewing public. It’s not that I wasn’t going to see the film again (it is the perfect Valentine’s Day movie), but that I expected to be shown everything. Dirty play, FOX.
Still, the guys and gals at ScreenCrush managed to get a description of what the second scene is and it has major implications for a future film.
As per ususal I’ll throw a SPOILER alert here…
If you’re still reading you have no one to blame but yourself.
The first scene is an homage to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and it works on a lot of levels. Deadpool mocks the usual Marvel-style of teasing future films. But apparently his mocking only goes so far as he comes back and teases a MAJOR addition to the mutant universe.
The Merc With A Mouth comes back and tells us to expect Cable in the Deadpool sequel and that he thinks it should be Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren or Kiera Knightley.
For those not in the know, Cable is the time traveling mutant Nathan Summers (son of Cyclops and a Jean Grey clone). He’s been tied to Deadpool in the comics since the beginning when they were both on X-Force and has been an integral part of DP’s world for a few years now too.
Director Tim Miller said that he expected that fans would want him to break out Cable for a sequel or they’d riot:
There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable. If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail.
This would also help solidify star Ryan Reynolds’ dream of getting an X-Force movie finally going (as was reported yesterday).
Don’t miss your chance to see the funniest superhero in years when it opens in theaters this weekend.
