Spread the love

All the fans and critics who were lucky to watch the premiere of  Deadpool 2 are now raving about the film’s post-credits scene, with many calling it one of the best in the history of the superhero genre. But we have come to understand that writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had different ideas for the post-credit scenes that would have made it into the movie, including the return of Chris Evans as the Human Torch from the Fantastic Four movies.

Chris Evans (Captain America) would have reprised his role as Johnny Storm in Deadpool 2.

During an interview, Wernick and Reese said that they wanted to have Chris Evans reappear as Human Torch, a role which he played more than 10 years ago.

“There were different codas kicked around,” Wernick said of the post-credits scenes.

“There were more X-Force interviews that were talked about. One was Chris Evans as Human Torch.”

When the directors were asked whether the plan didn’t work out because Evans declined to appear,  they said that it was not the case as something better came along.

“No, no, we never got that far,” Reese had confirmed. “Someone had the idea we actually did and we thought that was better. But we definitely had a lot more X-Force interviews with bizarre, random people coming in to interview.”

In addition to the Human Torch scene, the film included a scene where Deadpool went back in time to kill baby Hitler. Despite the fact that this part of the film was actually shot, it was ultimately removed from the final cut.

Wernick and Reese confirmed that the Hitler scene might have been a little too much even for Deadpool.

“It’s true,” Wernick told us. “I think it was cut just because, it was at the very, very end, and it left the audience with this, ‘Oh?’ It’s like, ‘Sure, it’s baby Hitler, but it is a baby. It’s kind of weird to watch that….We are Deadpool but there is a line we can’t cross.”

Directed by David Leitch and starring Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 will release this Friday, May 18.
