And get this: the reason is for shocking content. Shocking content. In a Deadpool movie. Yeah. So the full story here is, Deadpool 2 was planned to contain five post-credit scenes. Only four of those are making it to the final production because the other one ended up disturbing a large portion of the test audience. Did I mention this is Deadpool 2? Anyway, due to their discomfort, the scene was removed. Details on the the four can be Googled if your curiosity overrides your dislike of spoilers, but I’ll go ahead and reveal the content in this one since we won’t be seeing it on the big screen anyway (in other words, possible non-plot-related spoiler below).
Deadpool is in an infant ward next to a crib that says “A Hitler” on the tag. He’s debating on what to do when another baby in the room starts crying. Deadpool says “Shut up, Ira, you’ll thank me someday!” The scene switches to baby Hitler’s point of view as Mr. Pool – final warning to skip over if you think this will bother you – strangles him to death.
Jeez, now that’s messed up. Um, also, does that mean Magneto is prevented in that timeline? And if so, what happens with the X-Men, especially since they’ve been trying to recruit Deadpool? Wait a minute, if Xavier tried to found the X-Men alongside Eric, but the X-Men already exist in Deadpool 1, how could… okay, what in Thanos’s name is going on here? All of these questions… are pointless and stupid and have nothing really to do with Deadpool 2. At least I don’t think so. Whatever, Deadpool 2 hits theaters later this very week, and we’ll all be too busy laughing at his wise-cracks to care at all. But hey, there’s your wild comic book geek theory all ready to go. You’re welcome.
