Is Juggernaut DEADPOOL 2’s Secret Villain?

Almost all of the trailers for Deadpool 2 have tried to convince audiences Josh Brolin is doing double duty as a Marvel villain this summer. Not satisfied with crushing the MCU as Thanos, Brolin is also playing Cable in the Deadpool sequel, going head-to-head with Ryan Reynolds‘ Merc with a Mouth and the newly formed X-Force. But comic readers know Cable isn’t a bad guy, he’s a hero. This may mean that the filmmakers have gone out of their way to hide Deadpool 2‘s true villains. Today’s Nerdist News looks at the evidence that one of the big bads is none other than the Juggernaut.

Join host and the avatar of Cyttorak, Jessica Chobot, as she goes over a few clips from the film which suggest Juggernaut may get some cinematic redemption after his less than stellar turn in X-Men: The Last Stand. Some of the evidence is circumstantial, like the suspiciously large body heat signature that Domino picks up in a mutant transport. But a shot with Colossus punching an object that looks a lot like Juggernaut’s helmet is a lot more convincing (see the photo below).

Need more evidence? Then please see the tracklist for Deadpool 2‘s soundtrack. One of the tracks is called “You Can’t Stop This Mother ****er,” and the lyrics reportedly include the line “He’s a Juggernaut.”

Subtle. Real subtle.

Deadpool and Juggernaut actually do have a history together in the comics, as they fought in one of the first stories to cast Deadpool in a more sympathetic light. It just so happens Juggernaut’s partner-in-crime from the tale, Black Tom Cassidy, is reportedly played by Jack Kesy in the film. And where Black Tom goes, can the Juggernaut be far behind?

Do you think we’ll see Juggernaut reenacting his famous internet meme in Deadpool 2? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
