The writers also revealed another idea that was never shot would have involved Chris Evans reprising his role as Human Torch from the Fantastic Four franchise and participating in an interview to join the X-Force, but once they hit upon the idea that's in the movie now, they made a decision to move forward with that instead.

In an interview with the film's writers, it was revealed that Deadpool 2 nearly had a post-credit scene with Marvel Cinematic Universe actor Chris Evans.

No need to check your glasses, you read that correctly. If the Disney Merger goes down and Evans retires the mantle of Captain America, here is hoping fans will one day get to see that scene.

During an interview with Uproxx, Wernick and Reese said that it was their plan to have theAvengers: Infinity War star reappear as Human Torch more than 10 years after he left the role.

We aren't going to talk about what the actual post-credits scene is, so don't worry. Wernick says that one of the scenes featured Chris Evans as the Human Torch.

Interviewer Mike Ryan asked the writers if this didn't work out because Evans declined to appear, but that wasn't the case.


"We shot it and we put it in front of an audience", Reese explained. And we thought we don't want to leave the crowd on an "ohhhhh". But we definitely had a lot more X-Force interviews with freaky, random people coming in to interview.

As it turns out, Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have done similar brainstorming. Despite the fact that this film was actually shot, it was ultimately removed from the final cut.

When Deadpool discovers Cable has the power to timetravel, he demands to know why he didn't just go back in time to when Russell was a baby and deal with him then so it was easier, or better yet why he didn't go back and kill Baby Hitler and make the world a better place.

"There's even a draft of that scene where we back it up even more where he's standing over baby Hitler and says, 'God, that is a toughie, '" Wernick continued. "It's kind of weird to watch that.We are Deadpool but there is a line we can't cross".

Deadpool 2 is now in cinemas in some parts of the world, so we know that it features arguably even more insane, edgy jokes than the smash hit 2016 original.
