As if playing the title character weren't enough, Ryan Reynolds plays a second, secret character in Deadpool 2.

SEE ALSO: 'Deadpool 2' is the gayest superhero movie yet. That's not saying much.

In Deadpool 2 we see the return of a fan-favourite brute mutant, Juggernaut. Last time we saw this freight-train of a villain on-screen, he was being played by Vinnie Jones.

Ah who could forget that tour-de-force. 

This time Juggernaut was a seriously CGI'd behemoth, and many fans eagerly awaited the credits to find out who had voiced him. The credits roll, and Juggernaut is credited as... himself.

Turns out the voice behind the huge metal mask is actually none other than Mr Ryan Reynolds, as screen-writer Rhett Reese revealed.

“That was Ryan’s voice as the Juggernaut," Reese told a press junket, "and he did the facial capture for him. I don’t know how they did the physical mo-cap — I don’t think that was Ryan."

Seeing as Reynolds also played a young, hopeful version of himself reading the script for Green Lantern (who was then promptly head-shotted by Deadpool), not to mention appearing as the X-Men: Origins version of Wade Wilson (who also got shot by — you guessed it — Deadpool) that brings his sum total of parts in the movie up to four.

Thank god Deadpool took care of that little blip in his timeline.
