Finally, the buzz surrounding Deadpool 2 is over, and yes it didn’t disappoint anyone. In fact, this might be one of the few sequel films from Hollywood that is better than the original.
Deadpool 2 starring Ryan Reynolds in the lead role didn’t fail to impress the audiences and proved yet again that Deadpool is much more of a superhero than the usually depicted anti-hero in the Marvel Comics.
However, over the recent years, Hollywood films are raising all the eyebrows for the infamous Easter eggs that grab the attention of the fans from out of nowhere.
Reynolds’ Deadpool 2 too had some Easter eggs that you probably missed or didn’t notice with utmost attention. We guess most of you must have watched the film by now as we bring to you five things that you might have missed (spoiler alert for those who are yet to watch it).
Ryan Reynolds’ second character in the film
Yeah, you read that right. Reynolds actually essayed more than one role in the film and we are not talking about his numerous characters in the post-credits scene but in the actual film. Reynolds essayed the role of the secondary villain of the film, Juggernaut, who aides Firefist in his revenge to burn down an orphanage. Reynolds not only gave the voiceover for the character but also performed the facial motion capture for the big bad guy. You must have noticed Juggernaut’s dark witty sarcasm, something which Reynolds is best at!
Brad Pitt cameo
This might have been the biggest surprise the film delivered. However, this surprise was shortlived with a mere 4 second cameo from Brad Pitt. Okay, so where was he? Do you remember the character Vanisher, who was invisible during the entire film. Well, that role was essayed by Pitt and we got to see the glimpse of the actor when he took his final breath before being electrocuted to death in a hilarious scene where most of the X-Force members died except Domino and Deadpool himself. Rumours are Pitt completed his part of the film in just a couple of hours during the film’s post production stage.
Matt Damon and Alan Tudyk
When Cabel reversed the time and arrived in the present day, he was met by two hillbillies who were discussing about the toilet paper manifesto. Well, if you noticed the scene minutely, one of the hillbillies was Alan Tudyk in an avatar similar to his character Tucker McGhee from the film Tucker and Dale, while a heavily disguised Matt Damon was spotted when the fans noticed the scene carefully and started to draw comparisons between Damon and the character. Finally, after much research, it was revealed by the makers that it was indeed Damon as the heavily disguised bearded man. Well, this is not the first time Damon has made a special appearance in a superhero film. In the past, he was seen essaying the role of Loki on stage in Asgard in the film Thor: Ragnarok.
Some of the X-Men make their presence felt
In one of the scenes where a resurrected Deadpool is spending some time in Professor X’s school for special kids, we saw a good number of X-Men silently discussing something and unbeknownst to Deadpool they were just behind him in the other room. Seems like his dream of meeting the rest of the X-Men has to wait a little longer and till that happens he has to entertain himself with the likes of Colossuss, Teenage Warhead and Yukio. The X-Men spotted in the scene are as follows; Professor X (James McAvoy), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Storm (Alexndra Shipp), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).
The John Wick connection
During the film’s opening credits, the film mentioned another action thriller film — John Wick starring Keanu Reeves. In the credits,director David Letich was introduced as “The Man Who Killed John Wick’s Dog”. John Wick was produced and directed by David Letich. John Wick was also a huge hit and marked a turning point for Keanu Reeves, something similar to what Deadpool did for Reynolds.
