13 Easter Eggs and Secrets You Missed in DEADPOOL 2

Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Deadpool 2!

Deadpool 2 is finally here, and there’s so many comic book references the Marvel Universe couldn’t hold them all. Even the DC Universe wasn’t safe from this film’s wicked sense of humor, especially in one of our favorite scenes. Regardless, there were still plenty of secrets that may have escaped your notice during the movie. That’s why today’s Nerdist News is all about the 13 best secrets and Easter eggs you might have missed in Deadpool 2.

Join host and the only other surviving member of X-Force, Jessica Chobot, as she lands safely away from any wood chippers and buses to share her Deadpool 2 intel. We really should have known the X-Force was doomed from the start. In the comics, Zeitgeist and his replacement X-Force team got themselves killed after only a single appearance. History repeated itself here.

We’ll miss you most of all, Shatterstar! At least his death was darkly comedic. Black Tom didn’t even stay around long enough to do anything cool. Given the high mortality rate in Deadpool 2, Mr. Sinister was probably lucky he didn’t appear. The longtime X-Men villain’s real name was referenced in the title of the orphanage: Essex. And as we recently guessed, Juggernaut was in the movie. Ryan Reynolds helped keep that a secret by playing the Juggernaut himself.

There were also quick shout outs to some of the creators behind Deadpool’s comic book adventures, including Rob Liefeld, Gail Simone, and Gerry Duggan. Matt Damon even showed up for a cameo under heavy makeup to play the man with some…interesting opinions about the proper use of toilet paper. Brad Pitt’s Vanisher was easier to spot at the moment of his death by electrocution.

Sharp-eyed fans may have also recognized director David Leitch as a truck driver who was shown the door by Domino. But one of our favorite recurring gags was the way Deadpool’s comic book variant costumes were used, including his Uncanny X-Force outfit.
