Plot not yet listed



  • Tim Miller, who directed the first Deadpool film, was expected to return to direct the sequel, until he left due to creative differences, and was replaced by David Leitch.[18][19][20]
  • 20th Century Fox announced the June 1, 2018 release date for Deadpool 2 in April 2017, alongside several other films, including The New Mutants and Dark Phoenix, but was later pushed up to May 18, 2018.[21]
  • On October 14th, 2017, it was announced that this film along with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, had both wrapped filming.[22]


  • One of the creative differences why Deadpool director Tim Miller left the movie was his idea to incorporate into the plot a deeper exploration of the love story between Vanessa and Wade, which included her transformation into the super-powered Copycat. In the last moments prior to exiting the project, Miller spoke to 20th Century Fox higher-ups and pleaded they kept that aspect of the movie even if they scrapped the rest.[23]
    • The relationship between Deadpool and Russell being the heart of the movie was planned from the start, even before Miller left production.[23]
    • Miller intended for Cable to be more comic accurate and be 6'7" tall.[23]
    • Miller had also gotten permission to make use of Fantastic Four character The Thing and have him fight the Juggernaut in the film's climactic action set-piece.[23]
  • The film's earliest drafts set it roughly five years after the first film, and featured Deadpool as a father. According to Ryan Reynolds himself, "by page 1.5, it was totally untenable" and the idea was dropped.[24]
  • Some drafts of this film had Wade and Vanessa breaking up, rather than her dying.[25]
  • Deadpool was almost going to sport an updated costume with additional paneling on the arms, back, and legs. This redesign was dropped in favor of continuing with the costume from the first movie.[26]
  • The X-Men's cameo was directed by Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg. The characters were filmed in that film's set in Montreal, and then they were inserted in Deadpool 2 via green screen.[27]
  • Black Tom originally had a bigger role in an earlier script of this film. He lived until the end of the third act, and he became the devil on Firefist's shoulder, trying to get him to turn bad. His role was cut due to budget constraints.[25]
  • Brad Pitt's cameo as the Vanisher was worked on very late into the film's production. According to co-writer Rhett Reese, he agreed to do it "for scale and a cup of Starbucks — but Ryan's got to go get the Starbucks for me."[25]
  • The film's mid-credit scenes were shot as part of additional photography, and were not featured in test screenings.[25]
  • The film's mid-credit scenes of Deadpool travelling through time originally ended with Wade killing an infant Adolf Hitler. According to co-writer Rhett Reese, this idea was dropped due to the belief it was too harsh to have Deadpool kill a baby.[28] An altered version of this scene was included in the The Super Duper Cut home release of the film, with Deadpool instead calming him, changing his diaper and saying that he will be back with Cable as he loves killing kids.
  • A preliminary idea for the mid-credits scenes was to show more X-Force recruitment interviews, with one of the interviewees tentatively being Chris Evans reprising the role of the Human Torch from the Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer films.[29]
  • Originally, the planned film X-Force would've served as a direct follow-up to this film. And according to writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, a direct sequel would've entered production as soon as that one had wrapped.[30] After Disney's acquisition of 20th Century Fox in March 2019, said plans were scrapped, in favor of rebooting the franchise and integrating it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[31][32]
