Deadpool movies have always stood out for their craziness and sense of irreverence. Like the character, they clash with other productions in the genre. The second opus could have offered us a post-generic scene different from what we know.
Deadpool: Ryan Reynolds has fun at Marvel
Far from the great maneuvers of the MCU, Deadpool won his adaptation thanks to Fox. So much the better, shall we say, because we never imagined Disney having to introduce such a violent and rude figure.
It will however be necessary to use it well now that its rights have been recovered and that two successes have already proved that the public loved it. From an accounting point of view, they have accumulated more than $1.5 billion at the global box office. In recent years, several examples have shown that it is possible to adapt comics while delivering feature films prohibited for the youngest – something Disney wants to avoid.
Under the red jumpsuit is Ryan Reynolds, who perfectly embodies this sassy and rambunctious character. Before Deadpool, there is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who agrees to participate in an experimental program. This episode turns out badly and he nevertheless gets away with superpowers.
In the second opus, we find him in the company of the X-Force, a team formed with other atypical characters. The story ends rather badly since the hero loses his love, Vanessa, during the final confrontation.
A post-credits scene modified at the last moment
At least, that’s what we believe before a post-credits scene (below) comes to temper all that. We see inside Deadpool who manages to go back in time thanks to Cable’s watch and manages to save the one he loves.
That’s not all since a few gags are distilled at the same time and in particular one with a baby Hitler…
However, this post-credits scene could have been different.
In an interview for Syfy, Morena Baccarin indeed explains that Vanessa had to die for good in the first version of the film. During the test screenings, the public took this element badly and the studio decided to react so as not to expose itself to bad feedback.
Reshoots were therefore organized at the last minute in order to add the return of Vanessa. There is now a good chance that she will be present in the third episode which will be directed by Shawn Levy.
This anecdote nevertheless questions the functioning of Hollywood and the way in which films are modular in full design to avoid jostling the audience.
