Deadpool 2 hit theaters on the 18th, and people are still buzzing. The movie, filled with hilarious one-liners, easter eggs, and cameos has many surprises. Rhett Reese sat down with CBR, and revealed how Ryan Reynolds didn’t have only one, but two, roles in Deadpool 2.
“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.” – Rhett Reese to CBR.
Rhett Reese also explained that alongside Paul Wernick he was excited to renew Juggernaut, as the 2006’s X-Men movie left fans disappointed.
“We committed to it pretty early on, because he’s never been done justice until now. 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. What greater force of nature than Juggernaut?” – Rhett Reese to CBR.
Of course, this isn’t the biggest surprise the movie contains, as the Vanisher cameo was probably one of the best cameos ever done in a Marvel movie.
What do you think of Ryan Reynolds voicing Juggernaut? Did it come as a surprise to you?
Deadpool 2 is now in theaters.
