There Are Fun And Dirty Alternate Takes Of That Hilarious Deadpool 2 Cameo


Having just crossed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office, I suppose now is as good a time as any to discuss the multitude of awesome cameos in Deadpool 2.

Amongst those featured briefly in the David Leitch-directed sequel are a pair of Academy Award winners, one invisible (Brad Pitt) and one under heavy cosmetics (Matt Damon), Ryan Reynolds as Ryan Reynolds, reading over the script for his much-maligned superhero feature Green Lantern, and the X-Men.

The latter cameo saw the Merc with a Mouth cruising the X-Mansion in head honcho Charles Xavier’s trademark wheelchair, complaining about the lack of mutants present in the school for gifted youngsters. Just as he’s tossed from his ride, though, the camera reveals Professor X (James McAvoy), Quicksilver (Evan Peters), Storm (Alexandra Shipp) and Beast (Nicholas Hoult) actively hiding from Wade Wilson.

Undoubtedly, in my mind at least, the sequence is the best of many bit parts in Deadpool 2. And according to Quicksilver himself, Evan Peters, there are “fun, and dirty” alternate takes of that hilarious cameo. While speaking to Cinema Blend, Peters revealed that during filming on X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the quartet quickly ceased production to do a “quick thing” for Deadpool 2.

We were shooting [X-Men: Dark Phoenix], and were like, ‘Okay, we’re going to do a quick thing for Deadpool 2.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, that’s awesome!’ I thought it was going to be at the end of the film, in the credits, like some sort of funny Easter egg thing. And we had a lot of different versions for when they open that door and turn to us. But the one they used was pretty chill, and was in the first half of the film, which I was like, ‘Oh, Jesus, that’s kind of weird.’

When asked if he could divulge what those other versions were, Peters was hush.

 Ummm hmmm… not really sure I can say. There was some fun, dirty stuff.

Unfortunately, they weren’t able to squeeze any more details out of the actor, but hopefully some of the “different versions for when they open that door and turn to us” will be included on the home video release of Deadpool 2. After all, I can’t help but wonder what, exactly, the “fun and dirty” version of that cameo would look like. Can you?
