Deadpool Post-Credits Scene Teases Fan Favorite Villain for the Sequel
We already knew that Deadpool will have two post-credits scenes, one of which wasn't even shown at critics' and fan screenings. So last night was everyone's first chance to see it, and it turns out that it teased a huge development for the sequel (granted, one we were all pretty much expecting). 

Mild spoilers for Deadpool and Deadpool 2 follow!


The first post-credits scene is just a small dose of classic Deadpool breaking-the-fourth-wall/pop culture referencing humor, which almost exactly parrots the famous post-credits scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.



Then it cuts back to the credits, marking the end of the content seen at advance screenings. Then the second post-credits scene takes place back in that hallway, where Deadpool has some big news for us:

Opening quote
Oh! I can tell you one thing, and it's a bit of a secret. The sequel? We're gonna have Cable. Amazing character. Bionic arm, time travel! We have no idea who we're going to cast yet, but it could be anyone. Just need a big guy with a flat top. Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Keira Knightly? She's got range – who knows? Big secret, shhh. Oh, and don't leave your garbage all lying around. It's a total dick move. Go! Chica-chica!
Closing quote

Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller have already stated that Cable is in the conversation for the sequel (how could he not be?), but this is the first confirmation we've had that he will definitely appear. It would be a huge disappointment if he didn't, considering that he is really the definitive Deadpool villain, but I'm surprised that they didn't let us sweat it out for a few more months.

Cable, or Nathan Summers, is a Marvel Comics supervillain (sometimes antihero) with huge ties to the X-Men universe, as he is the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey. He was born into the present Marvel timeline, and then was sent into the far future when he was diagnosed with a fatal techno-organic virus, and then traveled back in time to take command of the New Mutants, living his life in the present as both an infant and an adult.

The Keira Knightley crack was probably a joke, especially considering how much everyone involved appreciates fidelity to the comics, but I, for one, would love to see a female Cable. And if not, Deadpool creator Rob Liefield's inspired suggestion would make a good second choice:
