While there is no post- end credits scene for “Logan”, there is apparently something at the start of the movie. Director James Mangold recently revealed that cinemagoers (in the US) can expect to see a short clip featuring none other than the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool! This is tease the sequel to the smash hit X-Men spinoff.
Now, 20th Century Fox has released the whole “Deadpool 2” clip online, with Ryan Reynolds back in the role. The character’s trademark meta humour is also very much in place, and this one takes a swipe at the notion of a certain DC superhero’s penchant for changing in phone booths. It even goes so far as to use the classic John Williams theme. Amusing.
Here’s some info on the sequel (via Comingsoon): “As teased in the post credits sequence on the first film, Deadpool 2 will introduce Cable, the time traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. The character has one of the comic book medium’s more complicated origin stories, so it remains to be seen what will go into the backstory of the big screen Cable. The role is currently being cast and, while rumors have been quite prevalent, an actor has not yet been selected for the role. Meanwhile, Deadpool 2 is also said to feature the luck-altering mutant Domino. Her casting has, likewise, not yet been confirmed by the studio.
“Deadpool 2” will be directed by David Leitch (“John Wick”) from a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
