Deadpool 2 is chock full of Easter eggs, Ryan Reynolds promises

When you’re sitting down to watch Deadpool 2 next June, keep your eyes peeled for all kinds of easter eggs and in-jokes. Filming has wrapped on the movie, and and star (and executive producer) Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to thank everyone involved with the movie.

That’s a wrap on DEADPOOL 2: A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE! Thank you to our beloved Captain, Mr. [David Leitch, director]… words are too clumsy to properly acknowledge your giant heart and talent. I love my hometown of Vancouver and our obscenely gifted crew. From our PA’s, (who are first in and last out) to our set decorators and prop department, riddling this film with Easter Eggs in almost every scene… Thank you. I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room. #MaximumEffort

With Deadpool‘s focus being partially devoted to constantly breaking the 4th wall, those easter eggs could be anything from comic book references to weird pop culture stuff, to in-jokes from the first movie. As Reynolds hints at in his post, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a Game of Thrones reference pop up in there alongside discussion of how many X-Men don’t appear in the movie.

Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular merc, and the sequel introduces Josh Brolin as frequent Deadpool partner/opponent Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino, with much of the first film’s cast returning to reprise their roles.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
