Deadpool 2 Easter Egg featurette packs them all in
Easter Eggs have been the norm in comic book-inspired movies as long as they’ve been around. Now, the crew of Deadpool 2 reveals their method for cramming as many Deadpool-inspired references in the sequel as humanly possible.
In the new featurette, titled “Creating Easter Eggs,” the Deadpool 2 director, screenwriters, and even the art department shows just how dedicated they were to keep comic book fans happy — and coming back for repeat viewings to try and spot them all.
Directed by David Leitch, Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) stars as Black Tom, with Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) playing Yukio and Firefist.
Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus. The sequel was written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan Reynolds.
