The surprising appearance of the Juggernaut in Deadpool 2 is certainly one of the best surprises of the film ̵
The spoiler is Juggernaut is a kind of combination of Ryan and me. And it only became, and this is a spoiler spoiler. It just came out of the need for change, and you're in the post-process, and we're like, "Okay, now we need a facial animator actor." And I'm in the editing room, and Ryan is writing altts, and we say, "I'll just do it." And then the entertainers will change it anyway.
I learned a lot about the Juggernaut when I sat down to talk to David Leitch during the Deadpool 2 press day in New York, starting with the fact that he and Ryan Reynolds were in production stopped the performance capture work. Apparently, it was really a matter of convenience, as they felt they did not need outside help to bring the character back to the screen for the first time since X-Men: The Last Stand .
The convenience factor worked very well on set as David Leitch and Ryan Reynolds were always present during the filming of Deadpool 2 but also during the post-production recordings of the voice were recorded. According to Leitch, his star occasionally came to record some additional dialogues for Deadpool, during which sessions he was able to get all the Juggernauts lines. Said Leitch,
Ryan has made a performance recording for certain dialogue bits. And then he provided the voice we changed, which allowed us to make some deadpools when we were in the mail. It would be like, "Okay, let's just switch to Juggernaut mode, try it out." Unlike "Let's get someone in, wait for them, call time," all of this. It was a close unit. Ryan has another franchise!
Similar to Deadpool and Colossus, Juggernaut is another fan-favorite Marvel character, that this branch of the X-Men franchise has managed to buy back to a point. Vinnie Jones Version of the character from X-Men: The Last Stand is far more infamous than popular, mainly because of a terribly embarrassing meme-inspired moment. Fortunately, Deadpool 2 creates a new version of the famous villain much more similar to his comic counterpart than the previous interpretation.
Not only Juggernaut, aka Cain Marko, is physically more accurate (much taller than just a normal human being), the movie even manages to dig a bit into his important backstory. Specifically, we learn at least that he is the brother of Professor Xavier, although we do not get the full explanation of his background story – which is rather complicated. While talking to scriptwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, they told me that it was not really on the table to delve into the character's story, but that they definitely wanted to give the fans something good. Said Reese,
We thought that Juggernaut had not been treated as well as he could have been in previous films, and we wanted to correct that … we were thinking a bit too much back story, especially with Cable , We were like, "Let's make a man of mystery, all Nathan Summers clone, techno-virus, all that stuff, we just thought we were overloading our audience, but we sneaked into Professor Xavier.
Am At the end of Deadpool 2 Juggernaut suffers a rather embarrassing defeat as he pushes a live wire into his bottom before being thrown into a pool – but you should not worry too much about him. "David Leitch has In my interview, not only hinted that Juggernaut survived the fight, but he also stated that he is excited to play around much more with the character in future films, Said Leitch,
I think there will be in the future Ground to really expand his powers, he's only in the film in the third act, and we're fixing the place, and I mean, there's only so much we can do to him in a Mano-Mano fight, w The action of the Juggernaut comes from him, as if he were plowing through things, and he is unstoppable, and we did not really have that in the construct of the set piece. So I'm looking forward to future issues if they want to bring him back to watch him destroy some shit.
We have to wait and see if Juggernaut gets his chance to really shit in a future movie – but right now we can definitely be happy with the version that delivers Deadpool 2 .
