It’s looking increasingly likely that Deadpool 2 will signal the return of Juggernaut, after all.
With little under a month to go until the Merc’s second coming, 20th Century Fox’s marketing machine is beginning to fire on all cylinders as we approach May 18th. And one need only look to the recent barrage of TV spots and trailers for proof of that. The studio seems to be doing a good job of publicizing the film, too, as it’s now on pace to break numerous ticket sales records.
But circling back to those trailers, and just last week fans spotted a possible reference to the aforementioned Juggernaut. It wasn’t much, but eagle-eyed viewers noticed a shot which appeared to show Stefan Kapicic’s Colossus jamming a knife or some form of blade into a particularly large opponent. Hardly concrete proof that the character will appear in the upcoming sequel, but now another interesting piece of evidence has surfaced.
Take a look at it in the gallery below, along with that aforementioned shot, and see if you spot anything that catches your eye:

Yup, that heat signature reading on the dash looks awfully familiar, doesn’t it? The bulky figure, along with the oddly shaped head certainly resembles Juggernaut, and while once again, this is by no means 100% confirmation that he’s in the film, it’s starting to look pretty likely that he is.
If you still aren’t buying it, then it’s also worth remembering that it was reported last year that Juggernaut might show up in Deadpool 2, as set photos revealed an actor wearing a head piece looking very much like the character’s recognizable helmet. So, all the evidence is pointing to an appearance from the villain, then. Let’s just hope it’s a more successful big screen outing than his last one.
Deadpool 2 hits cinemas on May 18th, and if those advanced ticket sales are anything to go by, it’s set to make a pretty big chunk of change and could even match its predecessor. Fingers crossed, eh?
