The following article contains spoilers for Deadpool 2.
Over the weekend, Deadpool 2 managed to topple box office (ahem) juggernaut Avengers: Infinity War, scooping up $125 million and assuring a future for the burgeoning X-Force franchise. In the tradition of Marvel movies everywhere, though, some of the most surprising moments in Deadpool 2 come after a brief credits sequence.
If you got up and headed out (or you didn’t understand what went down), here’s what happened:
Once he and his newfound family walk confidently off into the sunset, Deadpool heads back to the X-Mansion to get Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and her girlfriend Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna) to repair Cable’s time travel device.
