Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?

A few weeks ago, there were rumors about test screenings for Deadpool 2 which were said to be disappointing. Now, the latest word is Deadpool 2 is testing through the roof with high scores and praise. The reshoots added additional scenes for Josh Brolin‘s Cable and Zazie Beetz‘s Domino, since the initial test audience loved them. But the big mystery here is the identity of the mystery character who will be making a cameo appearance. Today’s Nerdist News is sharing our theories about Deadpool 2‘s secret cameo!

Join guest host and Marvel’s alternate “Merc with a Mouth,” Amy Vorpahl, as she lays out some enticing possibilities for Deadpool’s newest co-star. The reports going around state that Ryan Reynolds filmed a scene for two hours on a closed set alongside an unspecified performer, who will be added to the film’s final cut. 20th Century Fox and the Deadpool 2 team have really gone out their way to maintain this secret, so it should be a good one.

Who could possibly live up to the hype? How about Hugh Jackman? The former Wolverine performer may have stepped away from the role after Logan, but we think Jackman could be lured back for a cameo. He doesn’t even have to play Wolverine, since the first Deadpool established a Hugh Jackman in their world.

Our other two favorite theories involve key players from the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Robert Downey, Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson. Disney’s deal to acquire Fox is far from finished, so it may be too early to see a true blending of the universes. That said, a post-credits teaser with Iron Man and/or Nick Fury could be a humorous one-off, or even an indication of things to come. Keep in mind, the conclusion of Deadpool took place near wreckage which looked suspiciously like a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. Considering Deadpool’s irreverent approach to continuity and the fourth wall, it would actually be the ideal place to add more jokes about the Disney/Fox merger.
