Deadpool does X-Men: Apocalypse trailer post-credits scene spoof

Posted on

The Merc with the Mouth is back to his old antics. Though Ryan Reynolds did not reprise his Deadpool role for X-Men: Apocalypse, he appeared as the character in a Japanese trailer for the film to spoof the whole post-credits scene trend.  

“I know what you’re thinking: ‘An after-credits scene for a trailer? I thought they only did that for movies, right?’ Well, not everyone makes it to the end of Fox movies, so now we’re doing it after trailers,” he jokes. 

Deadpool also pokes fun at trailer breakdowns with his own “five things you may have missed in the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer,” one of them being how he and Psylocke are katana “twinsies.” 

The actual post-credits scene for Apocalypse teased a possible new villain for future films, while the one for Deadpool channeled Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to announce comic book hero Cable for its sequel. Reynolds is set to reunite with director Tim Miller, and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for Deadpool 2
