After that Deadpool 2 short aired before Logan, many people speculated that the old man who was shot on the street was Peter Parker's beloved Uncle Ben. The comic character was gunned down in the street, just like the man in the clip.
While speaking to Huffington Post about the upcoming sequel, Leitch was presented with the theory.
"That's a really interesting question," said Leitch. "I think that people should continue to theorize who that old man was."
This could mean that Leitch knows that old man is someone else important and he's telling fans to keep working on their theories. However, he could also be saying that fans are onto something, and we need to keep it up!

Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has also been cast in Deadpool 2. She will play Domino, a mutant with probability manipulation abilities that endows her with improbably good luck. In the Marvel Comics Universe, Domino was a member of Cable's mercenary crew, Six Pack, and one of his early love interests.
Jack Kesy has been cast in an undisclosed villain role, speculated to be Black Tom Cassidy. Shioli Kutsuna has also joined the production in an undisclosed "key" role.0comments
