Deadpool 2 cameo SHOCK: Ryan Reynolds also played Juggernaut | Films | Entertainment


The superhero sequel was full of surprises, but there were a few some fans may have missed.

Apart from and Brad Pitt’s blink-and-you’ll miss it moment, it turns out Reynolds himself played another X-Men character in the film.

The Deadpool star voiced and did facial capture for Juggernaut.

Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick opened up to about Reynolds’ cameo role.

They said: “Ryan Reynolds ended up voicing Juggernaut, if you didn’t know that.

“That was Ryan’s voice as the Juggernaut, and he did the facial capture for him.

“I don’t know how they did the physical mo-cap — I don’t think that was Ryan.

“We committed to it pretty early on, because he’s never been done justice until now.”

Marvel fans will remember Vinnie Jones played Juggernaut in X-Men: The Last Stand, which isn’t one of the most fondly remembered movies of the franchise.

And it’s clear from seeing Deadpool 2 that the new Juggernaut is much more in line with the character in the comics, than Jones’ portrayal.

They continued: “We always wanted to see a CG Juggernaut, so we finally got that.

“We also really needed to balance the scales in act three, between Deadpool and friends and little Firefist who has cool powers, but we needed to make it a fair fight.”

The writers added: “What greater force of nature than Juggernaut?

“It also gave us a chance for him to fight Colossus.

“Two big behemoths going at it in act three is never a bad thing.”

Deadpool 2 is out now.
