While Fox is promoting The Predator at Comic-Con International 2018 in sunny San Diego, Fox Home Entertainment has an even larger presence to promote the August home video release of Deadpool 2. And that meant the cast, writers, and director David Leitch returning to the infamous Hall H in a time slot usually reserved for Marvel Studios annually.
And while Fox didn't make any announcements here, they did showcase a few of the new and altered scenes coming with the Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut.
At the presentation three new scenes were played that will be a part of the 15 minutes of the added footage for the Super Duper Cut which will screen for the first time this evening for fans here at SDCC 2018. But to end the panel, we also got to see an altered post-credits sequence which added the much-talked-about baby Hitler scene.
What may have gone unnoticed however, is that one of the previous hilarious time-travel scenes where Wade Wilson undoes some problems from the past (killing Ryan Reynolds before he did Green Lantern, saving Peter, etc.) was altered as well.
The sequence where Deadpool goes back to X-Men Origins: Wolverine's third act and kills Wade Wilson in front of Hugh Jackman's Wolverine is extended. After saying he's "cleaning up the timeline" and not to shoot, he shoots Wade Wilson a few more times and says "love you" to Hugh Jackman's adamantium-upgraded mutant in the theatrical version. But in the new version, he says more, and tells Logan that if he comes calling in the future to join him (referring to X-Force no doubt), to say "yes" and then he shoots Wade and walks off.
"One day your old pal Wade's gonna ask you to get back in the saddle again. When he does, say yes."
This is the biggest hint yet that it's possible despite the many official denials by Hugh Jackman himself that we could see Jackman return as Logan / Wolverine in another X-Men movie. And what better way to do that than in an R-rated X-Force movie with Cable. It's something fans and Ryan Reynolds have always wanted and something even Hugh Jackman said would be amazing.
That being said, during the panel fan Q&A portion someone did ask if they can get Logan back to which director David Leitch said he can't speak to and to which Reynolds said is not happening, before saying "maybe" and that anything's possible.
