New DEADPOOL Images And Details Reveal Easter Eggs, X-MEN Ties, Sequel Ideas And More

Hit the jump and get a new look at Wade Wilson in and out of costume, and also check out some revealing new Deadpool set visit details that touch on cameos, easter eggs, Colossus, the R-rating, the Merc with a Mouth breaking the fourth wall, and who was almost the villain!

The unexpected embargo has just lifted for the lucky journalists who visited the set of Deadpool earlier this year to now report back what they learned. In addition to two new still images, which feature Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson, Deadpool) with director Tim Miller, and co-stars Gina Carano (Angel Dust), and Ed Skrein (Ajax), Collider has compiled over sixty new and intriguing details about the highly-anticipated hard R-rated adaptation; from easter eggs, costumes, and the supporting players, to cameos, the soundtrack, and what we might see in the inevitable sequel. Below are just some of those details, but you can head over to the source for all the deets, plus cast interviews. 


  • Deadpool references X-Men Origins: Wolverine by breaking the fourth wall and making fun of it. The movie disregards what happened in that film.

  • Cable was close to being in the film but they chose to wait until Deadpool was on his feet. It sounds like if they get to make a sequel Cable will be part of it.

  • On set they were already planning a post-credits scene that they consider “very cool.”

  • Stan Lee will have a cameo in the film.

  • Miller said that Colossus is the gateway drug into the rest of the X-Men universe and he plays the straight man to Deadpool.

  • The film will not shy away from very graphic scenes and situations but doesn’t dwell on blood and guts. Reynolds said there are some “pretty racy, pretty hyper-violent things that happen in this movie and it’s been a lot of fun to shoot.”

  • Morena Baccarin (Vanessa) will not have any powers in the film. If they get to make a sequel that’s when you’ll see them.

  • The final Deadpool script is about 70% of the script that was leaked, “The same basic movie is there.”

  • Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool costume had a muscle layer underneath that had to be removed because Reynolds was “too ripped” and his own muscle plus the costume muscle made him look “too big.” So all the muscle we see in the film is “100% USDA Ryan Reynolds.”

  • As a nod to Liefeld, Deadpool has his pouches.

  • Deadpool is Pansexual according to Tim Miller.

  • Deadpool does take place in the X-Men movie universe and as such fits into its larger timeline, and it is possible he might show up in the other movies. This affected how they wrote the script and what they were able to reference, such as the Blackbird and Professor X.

  • It was easier to put lesser known mutants in the movie, like Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Angel Dust, because it requires less approval and overhead for the larger X-Men Universe. Colossus required lots of approval and had to fit in the larger canon of the X-Men movieverse.

  • 80s and 90s music is going to be a huge part of the movie.

  • The film will have plenty of Easter eggs might reference a number of other Fox mutants. While I’m not sure, we might see silhouettes of other characters.

  • The movie will feature a number of unusual songs. When Guardians of the Galaxy came out and featured that cool soundtrack, Reynolds said, “I did have a bit of a panic attack.” On set both Reynolds and Miller made it clear that the Deadpool script had its music cues in it years before Guardians was written.

  • They have snuck in some references to other mutants out in the world throughout the film.;

  • Morena Baccarin was not familiar with Deadpool or comics in general before landing the role of Vanessa Carlisle. “She gets down and dirty and she’s not a victim, she’s not a damsel in distress.” Her character really gets into the action in this film; she’s scrappy.

  • olossus will be 7 ft. 6 inches in the film and to the actor on set is 6 ft. 8 and wore 8 inch heels to look the part on set.

  • The first act of the film shows Deadpool using guns. The third act shows him wielding katanas.

  • Angel Dust isn’t in that many comic books so Gina Carano and the writers had to create her character from scratch. But she had a lot of fun with creating the character’s look, which includes yellow contact lenses.

  • She is the henchwoman to Ajax in the movie and has a fight scene with Colossus. When doing her fight scene in a junkyard she was more worried about spiders than anything regarding the actual stunts.

  • Garrison Kane and Wire were almost in the movie.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. Directed by Tim Miller, while starring Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa Carlysle), T.J. Miller (Weasel), with Ed Skrein, and Brianna Hildebrand (Ellie Phimister), the much-hyped Deadpool is scheduled to open in theaters on February 12, 2016.
