If you thought there were a lot of pop culture references and fourth wall infringes in the first cinema, strap in for Deadpool 2.
In addition to the many, many meta gags you surely insured, there were some celeb cameos so quick you could have missed them while reaching into your popcorn!
Hey, who’s gonna say no to Ryan Reynolds, right?
See five of the biggest( below )!
1. Taylor Swift’s Cats
When he’s recovering from injuries in the X-Mansion, he’s wearing pajamas, including a cute cat T-shirt. But those aren’t merely any cute cats — if you appear close, this really is Meredith Gray and Olivia Benson, Taylor Swift‘s beloved pets! Taylor has long been a focus of Deadpool’s fascination in the comics, along with Bea Arthur and unicorns.
2. The Entire Cast Of X-Men
While complaining he never find any of the other X-Men, Wade walks past a room in which James McAvoy, Evan Peters, Nicholas Hoult, and the rest of the team are casually having a conversation — and doesn’t even notice! Did you?
3. Brad Freakin’ Pitt!
Brad Pitt is enjoying his cameos lately! When a new invisible character called Vanisher finally becomes visible for a single second, he’s played by the Fight Club star, who was in talks to play Cable in the film until scheduling get in the way.
4. Matt Damon?
When Cable first coming through to the past, there’s a Terminator-like scene where he asks a couple rednecks what year it is. One is Disney‘s good luck charm Alan Tudyk, the other is in heavy prosthetics to conceal his identity.
In the credits he’s listed as “Dickie Greenleaf” — which cinephiles my distinguish as the name of Jude Law‘s character in The Talented Mr. Ripley, the identity Tom Ripley assumes at the end of the cinema. Hence why people believe Matt Damon pulled another Thor: Ragnarok and did a astonish cameo!
5. Christopher Plummer( Kinda)
This non-cameo cameo goes by so fast, it’s almost impossible to consider — and necessitates multiple pieces of context.
Cable is watching news footage when a creep goes by at the lower end of the Tv saying Christopher Plummer turned down the role offered him in the new Deadpool movie.
This is an obvious reference to Plummer digitally replacing Kevin Spacey in the recent All The Money In The World.
Well, since production ended, costar T.J. Miller has faced his own accusations. And while they likely didn’t have the time or fund to replace him, this gag is almost certainly a last minute recognition of it.
Miller will reportedly not be returning for the next film.
