The scene after the credits shows Deadpool in a bathrobe, making fun of you, the viewer, for sticking around for so long. It is an homage to the post-credit scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). He also talks about the sequel, and says it will feature Cable. Then he makes a few jokes about the casting, and pokes at other movies that usually tease future movies in these scenes. The final "chika-chikaa" he does refers to the song "Oh, Yeah", by Yello, which is featured in that movie. See more »
With a brilliant script, visceral action, and a Oscar-worthy performance by lead Ryan Reynolds, 2016's Deadpool takes superhero and comedy films into a new direction and proves that comic book movies still have a lot more to offer.
Proof of the benefits of filmmakers taking risks rather than following the working formula, Deadpool takes the superhero genre and heightens it with its unapologetic offensive humor, bloody and intense violence, as well as a excellent cast and script. Deadpool is an example to not only based ones characters and stories off of the original material, but to embrace the heart and soul of the comic book medium as a whole.
