Here’s Who Voices SPOILER in Deadpool 2

Screenwriter spills the beans.

Warning! Full Deadpool 2 SPOILERS below! Deadpool 2 sees the big screen return of Marvel Comics villain Juggernaut, who has not appeared in an X-Men movie since Vinnie Jones played him in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.

Jones, however, does not reprise his role as Cain Marko in this film. In fact, the end credits for Deadpool 2 only credit the role of Juggernaut as being played by “Himself”. Deadpool 2 co-screenwriter Rhett Reese has now informed IGN who is really plays Juggernaut in the movie.

“Ryan Reynolds is the voice of Juggernaut, believe it or not,” Reese revealed. “Slightly modulated with a computer to bring his register down. But Juggernaut is such a force of nature, and he has not really been done justice in previous movies, because he wasn’t ever a CG character. And so, we just thought he was probably the coolest character never to be used as of yet in the right way.”

Reese explained that the filmmakers decided to use Juggernaut because the film’s homestretch required a villain of superior power to go up against the combined might of Deadpool, X-Force, and Colossus, with Reese calling the character’s inclusion “a good way to balance the scales, villains versus heroes in act three.”

“Because he’s so big and so tough, and we needed someone on Firefist’s side to help even it out,” Reese said. “And Ryan did a fun job with the voice.

He didn’t have many lines, he’s a man of few words, but he’s a man of great anger and forcefulness, and we think it worked out pretty well.”

Reese said that while Reynolds did motion-capture for Juggernaut’s face, he was unsure who may have done the performance-capture for the character’s body.
