I wrote a blog last week covering the overwhelmingly positive reviews for Deadpool 2 from members of the media who were given a private screening before the movie is released nationwide this Friday, May 18th. The majority of viewers claim the sequel is “smarter” and “funnier” than the original, a nearly impossible feat seeing as the majority of sequels suck and the original was so good.
The other takeaway from the screening was the buzz surrounding a post-credit scene that had people keeling over with laughter.
Deadpool 2 allegedly feature not just one but four bonus scenes in its final credits, none more outrageous than the fifth, which has been cut from the film after it made some pansies uncomfortable at preview screenings.
Since the scene has been cut, explaining the scene doesn’t constitute a spoiler. So no death threats in my DMs please.
The scene unfolds as follows, according to Jeremy Conrad of MCU Cosmic:
Deadpool in a newborn ward. Standing next to a crib with a name tag that says “A Hilter”. He goes back and forth on doing it. A baby cries and he says, “Shut up Ira, you’ll thank me someday!”. Finally he goes for it, then baby Hitler’s POV as Dreadpool strangles him.
If you’re impatient and want to know what goes down in the other four post-credit scenes, Conrad details them here. I looked and they are hilarious. I’m also the kid who sneaks downstairs in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, opens a couple presents and re-wraps them. Sorry, not sorry mom.
