Continuity mistake: The tread on Deadpool's boots when on top of the crashed lorry (just after Domino lands on the inflatable panda) are different from when Juggernaut rips him in half and his legs are behind him on the floor. (01:10:45 - 01:12:35)
Deadpool puts on a power-suppressing collar to persuade Russell to stand down. Cable tries to shoot Russell but Deadpool takes the bullet, and dies. Cable uses the last charge in his time machine to go back and save Deadpool's life, using the lead coin he got for Vanessa. Russell spares the headmaster's life, who is promptly run over by Dopinder. Cable opts to stay in the present day, now that his wife and child are safe in the future, to try and stop the world deteriorating.
During the credits, Deadpool gets the time machine fixed and goes around "fixing the timelines". He goes back and prevents Vanessa dying, then travels to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and kills the awful version of Wade Wilson from that movie (also played by Ryan Reynolds). He finally goes and shoots Ryan Reynolds in the head before he appears in the Green Lantern movie.
Blind Al: Can you speak up? It’s hard to hear you with that pity dick in your mouth.
Question: In the first timeline ending, Russell (Firefist) is not convinced or changed by Deadpool's pleading; in fact, he casts Deadpool aside. Cable then lunges for the semi-auto handgun and takes his last shot, which is intercepted by Deadpool in his left chest (a fatal wound). Seemingly, the only thing that really changed Russell's mind was Deadpool's actual death scene, as Deadpool rambled on with his farewells and gradually faded away. But, in the alternate ending, Cable goes back in time a few minutes and uses an arcade token to stop the bullet that killed Deadpool; thus, Deadpool doesn't die from the gunshot and Russell doesn't react to Deadpool's farewells (that never happened). So, what event changed Russell's mind the second time, if not Deadpool's actual death?
