In the X-Men 3: The Last Stand, the character Juggernaut is shown as the same height as a typical human.

In Deadpool 2, which makes a lot of references to X-Men, Juggernaut is several feet taller and much larger overall. (I'll include a picture if I can find one.)

Are the two movies supposed to exist in the same universe? Does Juggernaut grow over time? Is this a reimagining of Juggernaut? Is the Deadpool 2 Juggernaut more in alignment with the original character from the comics?

    It is not the same character, the one in X-Men 3 was the Juggernaut Bitch, the one in Deadpool 2 is the Juggernaut. – Theraot May 22 '18 at 4:01

    “Are the two movies supposed to exist in the same universe?” These timelines are so confusing. – Paul D. Waite May 22 '18 at 12:40

Are the two movies supposed to exist in the same universe?

Yes...and No

The "universe" is not exactly stable and has been rebooted and recreated a few times as described in this Deadpool/X-Men Timeline question & answer.

Bryan Singer adds, “I rebooted the universe so now anything can happen,” with the caveat that their theory of time-travel and alternate universes revolve around immutability, in that things may differ, but key events in every timeline will remain mostly similar. Xavier will always form the X-Men, Wolverine will always enlist in Weapon X and get his adamantium claws, and Wade Wilson will always become a version of Deadpool.


Does Juggernaut grow over time? Is this a reimagining of Juggernaut? Is the Deadpool 2 Juggernaut more in alignment with the original character from the comics?

You could call it a re-imagining but the Deadpool "version" is considerable closer to the comic version that the Vinnie Jones portrayal.

From Marvel's comic wiki his height is 9'5" (2.87 m) and weight 1,900 lbs (862 kg).

    When did he get so big in the comics? He used to be a really large guy able to sit at a bar without too much attention if he was not in armor like in Uncanny X-men 183. – SDH May 22 '18 at 18:55
  • @SDH He used to be a really large guy able to sit at a bar without too much attention if he was not in armor , But as you said if he already was a large guy, then he surely get attention. Although what I can't understand is, you asking When did he get so big, while in next sentence you saying He used to be a really large guy – Vishwa May 23 '18 at 5:24
