Unraveling DEADPOOL 2’s Mid-Credits Scene (Spoilers)

Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for Deadpool 2. If you haven’t seen the movie, go break the fourth wall elsewhere!

Is a Marvel movie even a Marvel movie without mid-credits or post-credits scenes? We’re used to them now, and Deadpool 2 doesn’t disappoint. Early word out of Deadpool 2 says the mid-credits scene is one for the ages. “You’re welcome, Canada!” In one fell swoop, Deadpool drastically changed the events of the sequel–he may have even wiped out his alter ego. It’s a rare thing when an actor gets cheers for killing himself in his signature role on screen. On today’s Nerdist News, we slow our roll to break down everything that went down in Deadpool 2‘s closing moments.

Join guest host and substitute X-Force member, Hector Navarro, as he goes over some of the wildest comic book movie scenes in years. It was one thing for Deadpool to use Cable’s time travel device to save his girlfriend, Vanessa. We get that decision. It may have negated almost all of the events of the movie and DP’s character growth, but he would have done anything for her. Everything he did after saving Vanessa basically broke the universe.

Deadpool only went out of his way to save one member of his doomed X-Force team, which means we might see poor powerless Peter again. But it’s Deadpool’s visit to X-Men Origins: Wolverine that really caught everyone’s attention. Fox has spent years pretending the movie didn’t happen, and the X-Men films have always had murky continuity at best. But it was still weirdly satisfying to see Hugh Jackman back as Wolverine, even if it was from old clips. DP murdering his doppelganger from that film was also a plus.

Finally, Deadpool closed on the ultimate meta joke: the murder of Ryan Reynolds before he could star in Green Lantern.
