Near the end of the 2016 film Deadpool, one of the lines Wade shouts out is:

"And tell Beast to stop shitting on my lawn!"

I heard rumors that they had actually considered bringing in Nicholas Hoult as Beast, but I didn't know if this was true.

Was Nicholas Hoult ever considered to appear in Deadpool?

  • Oh, I know. I just added the second part to empathize the fact that Deadpool is stating a low budget on his film by commenting on the 'studio couldn't afford another X-Man?'

1 Answer 1


Apparently this was actually a serious consideration1; Film School Rejects reports on the Deadpool commentary track (on the DVD release), and note:

They originally wanted the end credits scene to feature Beast shitting on Wilson’s lawn and then running off as Wilson shakes his morning newspaper, but they had to settle for a joke about it instead. “Nicholas Hoult was game,” says Reynolds, but they couldn’t make their schedules work.

1 As serious as anything involving this movie was, anyway

  • @Jason Baker-Aw, too bad; that would have been a funny scene. Oh, well, maybe they could find a way to slip it into Deadpool 2. Thanks!
