Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable.
Co-writer Rhett Reese reveals that the scene in which Damon appeared came from an argument he's been making for years, which found its way into the movie after Ryan Reynolds became the latest to hear the plea. According to Reese... It's been sort of an old runner of mine. I've told my friends this and people know this about me. I do this bit about the inadequacy of toilet paper to create the appropriate hygiene for a human being. So I did it for Ryan at one point and we just all looked at each other and said, 'well this has to go into the movie somehow.' From there, they found the place to put the scene in Deadpool 2, and then the question became one of casting the right person to deliver these all-important lines. Clearly, the funniest way to portray the joke was to get somebody important to give the speech. At that point, Ryan Reynolds reached out to Matt Damon, who was, somewhat surprisingly, open to the idea. Apparently, he really liked the script they sent him. So then we thought, 'well, what caliber actor would we need to do a scene where two rednecks talk about wiping themselves after spending some time on the toilet.' Of course, you have to have somebody Oscar caliber doing that kind of bit. Matt was very receptive so Ryan ended up sending him the pages. Matt called him back and said 'I'm in.' If you didn't recognize Matt Damon as the redneck sitting on a truck bed with Alan Tudyk, don't worry too much. Apparently, nobody else on the crew knew it was him either after the time he spent in the make-up chair. However, that's not quite where this story ends. It seems the speech that Matt Damon gave had quite a profound impact on the actor as Deadpool 2's other major writer, Paul Wernick, revealed that Matt Damon himself has now taken the words to heart. Matt's now a wet wipes guy himself after he read the pages. It seems that Rhett Reese has found at least one convert to his argument in favor of the wet wipe.
Fuck Wolverine. First he rides my coattails with the R-rating, and then, that hairy motherfucker ups the ante by dying. What a dick. Well, guess what, Wolvie? I'm dying in this one, too.
When the brakes on the prison rig are cut they leak hydraulic fluid making it unable to stop. A vehicle that of size and weight would definitely require air brakes which not only don't leak fluid but apply automatically if the air line is cut.
Opening credits presented in a James Bond style sequence, with each credit referencing the scene prior, rather than actually crediting anyone.
In India, the CBFC (Central Board Of Film Certification) demanded that audio edits be made to the film before the film could receive an 'A' rating (meaning that only an adult audience; whom are aged aged 18 and over can attend screenings of the film). These changes bleeped out some heavier profanities from the film; the violence and sexual humor however was left uncut.
