Both of DEADPOOL's Post-Credits Scenes Revealed
Deadpool opens in theaters this Friday, and even though I understand the character and know exactly what they were trying to do with the movie, I didn't think it worked very well. (Mick loved it, though.) We know that the movie has two post-credits scenes, but only one of them played in press screenings, so I wasn't sure what the second one would be. Now that information has been revealed, and even though I don't normally like to spoil things for people, I know there are a ton of you who are dying to know this information so I'll share it with those who are interested below.
Obvious spoiler warning: if you don't want to know what happens, turn back now.
The first post-credits scene involves Deadpool pulling a Ferris Bueller, dressed in a robe and talking to the audience in a hallway that looks an awful lot like Ferris's house in John Hughes' classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off. He says, "You're still here? It's over. Go home. Oh, you were expecting a teaser for Deadpool 2. Well, we don't have that kind of money. You were expecting Sam Jackson to show up with an eyepatch and a saucy little leather number? Go. Go."
The second post-credits scene picks up right where that one left off, with Deadpool coming back around the corner and saying, "Oh! But I can tell you one thing, and it's a bit of a secret. The sequel? We're gonna have Cable. Amazing character: bionic arm, time travel. We have no idea who we're going to cast yet, but it could be anybody. Just need a big guy with a flat top. Could be Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Keira Knightley — she's got range — who knows? Anyway, big secret. Shh. Oh, and don't leave your garbage all lying around. It's a total dick move. Go." And then he pops back into frame and makes the "Chicka-chickahhhh" sound from the Ferris Bueller soundtrack. You can watch video here until Fox takes it down.
The Cable reveal isn't exactly a surprise, considering Reynolds has already talked about it and director Tim Miller teased it himself. But fans will be pleased to know it's moved past the early conversation phase into the "this is definitely going to happen" phase. Who do you think should play Cable in the sequel?
