Cress Williams Reveals What He Wants To See In Black Lightning Season 2

If you’ve yet to jump on the Black Lightning bandwagon, then let me say that you’ve been missing out on one of the more addictive, intriguing superhero shows on all of TV. Granted, it’s understandable if some are late to the party, but you’ve got the whole summer to binge the first season when it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD this June.

What’s been great about the series thus far is that it’s somehow been able to achieve a great balance by containing as much heart and warmth as The Flash, yet isn’t afraid to get as dark and unapologetic as Arrow. Plus, it’s chock full of relevant social issues, thus giving the ongoing saga a generous amount of depth.

That said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise when lead actor Cress Williams began listing off what he hopes to see

Here's What the Postcredits Scene in Deadpool 2 Really Means
Warning: Fairly massive spoilers for Deadpool 2 are in this post! Be forewarned.

If you're reading this, hopefully you've basked in the glory that is Deadpool 2. The antihero's second go-round is certainly jam-packed with hilarious jokes, a whole flood of wild cameos (including one from Brad Pitt himself), and a pretty stellar soundtrack to boot. But we have a bone to pick with the latest R-rated superhero film, and it has everything to do with that postcredits scene. Turns out, it's actually a pretty big deal.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let's all go through a light recap together. Basically, Josh Brolin's Cable saves the day by using the remaining juice in his time-traveling gadget to save Deadpool. Now, he's stuck in the past. Which, like, Ok. Sure.

Deadpool 2’s Post-Credits Scene Almost Included The Entire Fantastic Four

Back in 2016, screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Zombieland) were solely responsible for the script underpinning Tim Miller’s Deadpool, which went on to earn itself the title of highest-grossing R-rated superhero movie ever.

Such unprecedented success of course opened up a sense of creative freedom on Deadpool 2 which, coupled with input from Ryan Reynolds – the Wade Wilson star earned a writing credit for his contributions here – resulted in a no-holds-barred adventure that was more concerned with meta gags and superhero clichés for most of its runtime than it was with delivering a competent story. A sentiment that many critics echoed.

Nevertheless, Wernick and Reese eventually drew the line at Baby Hitler, Chris Evans and at the entire Fantastic Four showing up, it seems. While discussing all things Dp with Yahoo, the scribes touched on the post-credits content that remained on the cutting room floor, saying:

‘Deadpool 2': What Is ‘Fridging’ and Why Are People Annoyed About It?

‘Deadpool 2': What Is ‘Fridging’ and Why Are People Annoyed About It?
(Note: This post contains spoilers for the beginning and ending of “Deadpool 2.”)

The “Deadpool” movies might be meta, sarcastic and raunchy, but that doesn’t mean they’re not emotional, too. In fact, both “Deadpool” and “Deapdool 2” put protagonist Wade Wilson through the wringer in terms of emotions, and each time, he comes out a better man for his experiences.

One of the elements of the emotional growth Wade (Ryan Reynolds) experiences in “Deadpool 2” has some viewers annoyed, though. The trouble is a long-running story trope that’s especially prevalent in comics and superhero-type stories, one that some see as sexist, and one that’s a big part of the story of “Deadpool 2.” That trope is called “fridging,” and it’s something many have criticized as being too prevalent in stories about super dudes fighting super baddies.

Deadpool 2 Writers Defend How They Handled The Female Characters

Deadpool 2 has recently come under fire for its treatment of Wade Wilson’s girlfriend Vanessa, with many accusing writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick of indulging in the ‘Women in Refrigerators’ trope.

The concept of ‘fridging’ was introduced by critic and comic book writer Gail Simone, taking the phenomenon’s name from an issue of Green Lantern in which Kyle Rayner finds his girlfriend dead in a refrigerator. It’s basically a term for any example of a female character being attacked or killed purely as a means of granting more emotional weight to the leading man’s story, often inspiring him to seek vengeance for the wrongdoing.

As well as this trope being observed in the murder of Vanessa early on in the flick, the deaths of Cable’s wife and daughter were also regarded by some viewers as examples of fridging. Writers Reese and Wernick have now responded to the controversy,

Deadpool 2’s Post-Credits Scene Almost Didn’t Happen Due To Technical Difficulties

Deadpool 2 has one of the best post-credits sequences of any Marvel movie, as it filters in several hilarious skits throughout. Using Cable’s repaired time-spinner, the Merc with a Mouth goes back in time and saves a few of the friends and loved ones he’d lost during the film. Once he’s done that, he decides to clear up some crimes against comic book cinema that he’d committed in the past, including X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Green Lantern.

It’s arguably the Origins scene that packs the most punch, as it cleverly splices Wade Wilson into the finale of that oft-derided X-Men prequel, allowing him to murder the terrible version of the character from the film and even kind of interact with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, albeit via archival footage.

You’d think that this scene must have been easy to create, as it mostly consists of

Warning: Major spoilers for Deadpool 2 below! I'm serious!

F*ck yeah! Deadpool 2 is finally here, and we're helping you unwind from all the madness contained within. To answer the biggest and most pressing question, Celine Dion does not make an appearance. But at least we can all revel in the glory of Miss Zazie Beetz, aka the very lucky Domino, and the punch-line-a-minute man himself, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds). By the time the movie ends, it's hard not to be on the edge of your seat from all the action, with tears in your eyes from all the jokes. But the fun doesn't stop there. In fact, a lot goes down once the credits start to roll.

Yep, there's a scene that comes with the credits! Actually, there's a whole series of scenes that play out. To properly address it, we need to set up just a bit of backstory about the grisly Cable,

You'll Never Guess Which Ryan Reynolds Movie Convinced Josh Brolin to Join Deadpool 2

Image Source: 20th Century Fox

If you've watched any of the trailers for the upcoming Deadpool sequel, then you've no doubt seen Josh Brolin's take on Cable. He looks just as tough as the comic-book version of the character, and even though we haven't gotten a chance to see the film just yet, we have to imagine there's nobody out there who could've done the grumpy villain justice. That being said, he might not have agreed to play Cable if it wasn't for his love of one of costar Ryan Reynolds's past films. And no, it's not Green Lantern.

Brolin recently told Entertainment Weekly that the driving force behind him choosing to sign on to Deadpool 2 was his minor obsession with the 2009 romantic comedy The Proposal. Yes, really. "I was a secret fan of The Proposal, having watched it several times by myself," the 50-year-old Avengers: Infinity War actor revealed.

‘Deadpool 2’ Director David Leitch on That Surprising Vanisher Cameo: ‘It Was One Take’

‘Deadpool 2’ Director David Leitch on That Surprising Vanisher Cameo: ‘It Was One Take’
(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven’t seen “Deadpool 2.”)

Fans all over the nation were surprised when a familiar face popped up for three seconds in “Deadpool 2.” But did he, or didn’t he, actually film the sequence?

When the X-Force is coasting through the air on their mission to rescue the young mutant Russell (Julian Dennison), an empty backpack is seen soaring through the sky. It’s none other than Vanisher, a mutant whose superpower is invisibility. However, when Vanisher meets his end with a live electrical wire, we see Brad Pitt sizzle on the screen.

“We did have him on set for about eight minutes,” director David Leitch told TheWrap.

“We had sort of locked him in and we made a window for him, and shot him on the lot during postproduction,” Leitch said. “He drove in, went to touch-ups, came out, hung

Warner Bros. Asks Ryan Reynolds For Their Green Lantern Ring Back and Reynolds Hilariously Responds

The Green Lantern movie that Warner Bros. made with Ryan Reynolds has been the butt of a few jokes in the Deadpool franchise. The actor has made it very clear over the years that he regrets being a part of the movie.

There's a pretty brutal joke in Deadpool 2 at the expense of Green Lantern. I won't spoil it for you but apparently, it was bad enough for Warner Bros. to tweet Ryan Reynolds and ask for the Green Lantern ring back.

Sorry @VancityReynolds, we're going to need the ring back. pic.twitter.com/dPyfsRPUYg

Is [Spoilers] Really Dead In Deadpool 2?

As was previously rumored, Deadpool 2‘s opening scene kicks off with a shocking death – Wade Wilson’s fiancee Vanessa, to be precise. Morena Baccarin’s character was a major part of the 2016 original but here, she’s quickly killed off in order to fuel a new emotional arc for the Merc with a Mouth.

In other words, she’s been “fridged,” the all too common comic book trope of the hero’s girlfriend dying just to further their loved one’s story. It was disappointing that something as subversive as this franchise usually is was playing this cliche straight… but maybe we should have had more faith. Deadpool 2‘s post-credits scenes appear to undo Vanessa’s death, promising a full reappearance from her in the next film.

Specifically, Wade gets a chance to fix some of his mistakes from earlier in the movie by using Cable’s time-spinner
