SPOILERS AHEAD for Deadpool 2.
You’ve been warned!
Alrighty then. Today marks the release of Deadpool 2. In the film, Ryan Reynolds plays Wade Wilson / Deadpool, but did you catch his sweet, sweet vanilla voice coming out of a second character’s mouth?
Well, if you were eagle-eyed enough to see who voiced Juggernaut in the credits, it simply said “Himself.”
See where I’m going here? Reynolds voiced Juggernaut. I guess you can have it both ways.
Co-writer Rhett Reese explained this to CBR:
“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.”
Reese also explained why he and co-writer Paul Wernick decided to bring back Juggernaut after his god-awful appearance in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand:
“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?”
There you go! Deadpool is always his own worst enemy.
