X-MEN Star Ray Park Responds To Rumors He'll Return As Toad In DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE

X-MEN Star Ray Park Responds To Rumors He'll Return As Toad In DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE X-MEN Star Ray Park Responds To Rumors He'll Return As Toad In DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE

We've known for a while now that Toad will make an appearance in Deadpool & Wolverine, but is X-Men star Ray Park set to reprise the role? Here's what the actor told a fan on Instagram earlier today...

Deadpool & Wolverine set photos have confirmed Toad will be a member of Cassandra Nova's Void army. However, we still don't know who will bring this Variant of the X-Men villain to life in the upcoming threequel.

Originally played by Darth Maul actor Ray Park, Toad was introduced in the 2000 movie as a member of Magneto's Brotherhood. During the final battle, we saw just how formidable the mutant was when he squared off with Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Storm, and actually gained the upper hand.

However, Storm later electrocuted him with a lightning bolt and reeled off the now iconic, "Do you know what happens to a road when it's struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else..." We never did find out whether Toad survived his fall from the Statue of Liberty. 

The villain later returned in X-Men: Days of Future Past, with scenes set during the 1980s revealing he fought in Vietnam before returning home where he was inspired by Magneto's speech. In the 2014 movie, he was played by Evan Jonigkeit.

Now, Park has responded to the speculation surrounding his involvement and...well, we're not sure whether the prolific stunt performer and actor is confirming his role in Deadpool & Wolverine or outright dismissing the possibility! 

Based on what we've seen, it appears lookalikes are being used for many of these cameos. That will feel like a cop-out to some, but X-Men was released over two decades ago and neither Toad nor Sabretooth had any real speaking lines. With that in mind, there's really no need to enlist Park or Tyler Mane, though we suppose it's possible they'll appear.

See if you can decipher Park's response by checking out the screenshot below.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively and, as we mentioned above, even singer Taylor Swift among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Reynolds, Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Between 97 and Deadpool/Wolverine, it’s an X-Men takeover and I’m here for it

@FireandBlood - It all started with Scarlet Witch in Wandavision and we didn't even notice. 😢

He is a very good actor who has appeared in many TV shows/movies over the last 30 years or so.

He plays his role well in almost everything he does.

I got to say, the line "Do you know what happens to a road when it's struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else..."is actually worse than the line “He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died”

There. I said it. 😌

@Izaizaiza - agree. I always hated that line lol

UncleHarm1 - 4/24/2024, 4:22 PM
@Vigor - I read somewhere it was originally supposed to be a callback, Toad (or Road I guess) had some lines in the original script and Storm was referencing what he said that got cut.

@UncleHarm1 - That actually makes a lot of sense. The scene seemed so random and cringy, but with that context it would make sense
UncleHarm1
UncleHarm1 - 4/25/2024, 10:58 AM
@Izaizaiza - Still cringy, but less random at least lol

Or look different…

All it needs to be is recognizable enough to be Toad which it is.

But the important thing is will they turn him into a gender dysmorphic toad? Boy and girl toads at the lily pond disco really wanna know.

Izaizaiza - 4/24/2024, 4:16 PM
@DocSpock - serious question: have they turned any character trans?

@DocSpock - Hopefully they will avoid giving any mutants that particular mental delusion/illness

Seems to me he might be denying it but we’ll see , wouldn’t be the first time an actor has lied in regards to a role.

Anyway , I could see Deadpool making fun of this now infamous line from X Men…

Anyway , hope he’s in it but could see it being a blink & miss it appearance aswell with Lady Deathstrike and Azazel possibly being Nova’s main henchmen.

Why would Storm say "road" when his name is "Toad"? Are you sure that's the correct quote?

@Mrtoke - He does a little Darth Maul twirl in X-Men. Singer asked him to do it as a nod to his Star Wars character.

@Spike101 - I recently learned that I'm set to cameo in this movie for my blink-and-you'll-miss-it role as "Guy Who Attends Early Morning Zoom Calls Wearing A Spider-Man Onesy". Apparently I'm playing a variant of Thor's former roommate Daryl. Huh, who would have guessed. Alrighty then. LFG!
