Deadpool 2 had five post-credits scenes which included a major cameo by a very popular X-Men and a joke aimed at Ryan Reynolds and his poorly received role in the DC Comics Green Lantern movie.
Deadpool 2 sees the mutant Cable time travel to the past to correct the future, and in the process leaves the mercenary stranded in the past which is our present. Cable’s time traveling device only had enough energy left for two trips — one into the past, and another to get him back home to the future — but at the end of Deadpool 2 the device is busted.
However, the first mid-credits scene starts with Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and girlfriend Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna) tinkering with Cable’s time device at the X-Mansion. She can’t understand how “something so small generates enough energy to reverse time.”
“Just fix it, Eleven, or I’ll take it to the Genius Bar,” Deadpool says from the doorway. The gloomy teen ignores the Stranger Things jab.
“Cable’s gonna kill you if he finds out,” Yukio says. “Never heard of him,” Deadpool replies, straight-faced.
“Why do you think I’m helping him?” Nega says, tossing him the time-hopper.
“The Lord works in mysterious ways,” Deadpool tells her. “Good day.”
Yukio waves him off. “Bye Wade!”
He pops his head in. “Bye Yukio,” he says gently with a wave.
“That was probably a bad idea,” Yukio tells Nega.
The fiery X-Man has a horrible realization. “What have we done?”
“If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher plays.
We’re back in time. Wade is reunited with Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) in his apartment.
“I hope you sharpened the cream cheese spreader,” he tells her, brandishing the blade.
A gun-wielding assassin appears and Wade impales the killer square in the forehead with the knife.
“I’ll be right back,” Wade says, his face lit up with excitement. He activates the time travel device again. “We’re definitely naming our kid Cher,” Wade yells before disappearing again in a blue flash.
We’re back in time again just outside the Hillside Amusement Park, where Deadpool and his newly created X-Force crew have landed.
Deadpool cries out for Peter (Rob Delaney).
“X-Force!” Peter yells, bringing his arms together into an “X” formation.
“Walk away!” Deadpool tells him. “Just walk away!”
“But we’re X-Force,” Peter says.
“Nope, we’re not,” Deadpool replies. “No X-Force.”
“All right, well, this has been pretty scary,” says Peter.
“Go home, sugar bear,” Deadpool says, tapping his chest and lifting a thumbs up to the sky. “Go home.”
“Okay! Will you give Domino my email?”
We go back even further in time, in a scene from 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The now-altered scene sees a younger Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) come face-to-face with Weapon XI — a corrupted and mute Wade Wilson — who was transformed into a bald, mouthless killing machine.
“Wade, is that you?Guess Stryker finally figured out how to shut you up.” Wolverine says while he unsheathes his claws.
Weapon XI is shot in the head.
The modern-day Deadpool steps into frame. “Hey! It’s me! Don’t scratch! Just cleaning up the timelines,” he says firing rounds into Weapon XI’s corpse.
“I love you,” Deadpool whispers, exiting.
The final mid-credits scene sees Ryan Reynolds in a warmly lit office.
“Welcome to the big leagues, kid,” the Canadian star tells himself. He holds the script for Green Lantern.
Then suddenly, the script for the Warner Bros. DC Comics adaptation that starred Reynolds as Hal Jordan is swiftly splattered with Reynold’s blood and brains.
With a bullet hole in the center of his forehead, he drops dead — revealing Deadpool with a gun in hand.
“You’re welcome, Canada,” Deadpool says.
Deadpool 2 is now playing in cinemas everywhere.
