'Deadpool' Contains An Extra Unknown Post-Credit Scene

With Deadpool just days away from being released and with the review embargo having broken over the weekend, there may be few surprises left unspoiled online by the time fans see it. One surprise was already spoiled in a way on Feb. 6, when it was revealed that not one but two end-credit scenes would require audiences to stick around to the end.

Instead of Ryan Reynolds, director Tim Miller or someone else on the movie crew, original Deadpool comic creator Rob Liefeld broke the news on Twitter.

 

 

Critics and select fans who saw it early already saw one post-credit scene, yet Liefeld gave away that there's another one too big to spoil for anyone right now. Speculation is sure to run rampant, as some will probably guess it has a Hugh Jackman cameo and gives Deadpool a second shot at Wolverine after the X-Men Origins: Wolverine debacle, or is some other big slam at that unpopular movie.

It could also have other X-Men encounter Deadpool besides Wolverine, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, or just have a regular old teaser for the greenlit sequel. Knowing Deadpool, however, it may just be some dirty meta commentary and satire to mock post-credit scenes in the first place, and mock us for staying in theaters for them.

Usually scenes in the end credits are giant Easter Eggs for future sequels and installments in a cinematic universe, as Marvel has pioneered over the years. Deadpool is only now starting out as a franchise and may not be the best fit for a larger PG-13 X-Men universe in the future, so no one knows for sure what its larger plans are yet beyond a sequel.

Either way, if the first official reviews are any indication, fans will be more than willing to sit through credits and see even more. They will get their chance to see the 99 percent of the film critics already saw and raved about, and the 1 percent that was kept from them, on Feb. 12.
