Deadpool 2 poster brings the family (and Cable) back together

Posted on

The foulmouthed, R-rated, unicorn-loving, Francis-stalking, fourth wall-breaking Marvel family is getting back together in the new poster for Deadpool 2. After debuting on Collider, franchise star Ryan Reynolds released the one-sheet, which spoofs the famous “Freedom From Want” painting by Norman Rockwell.

Our favorite Merc with the Mouth, presenting a Thanksgiving turkey, is seen standing beside Josh Brolin’s time-traveling psychic mutant Cable, while Dopinder (Karan Soni), Vanessa (Morena Boccarin), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), newcomer mutant Domino (Zazie Beetz), Weasel (T.J. Miller), and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) sit around the dinner table.

Meanwhile, Stan “The Man” Lee gets a cameo via the portrait on the back wall. Not spotted are The Hunt for the Wilderpeople breakout Julian Dennison and Jack Kesy as the reported villain.

“Thanksgiving in our house is a glorious, non-stop car accident set to the music of cocaine,” Reynolds tweeted.

The marketing campaign for the first film saw Deadpool infiltrate Tindr, spoof rom-coms, put poop emoji on billboards, and even attack Extra host Mario Lopez. Twentieth Century Fox is already getting things warmed up with Deadpool 2.

In addition to the first poster, Reynolds popped up on a special cover of Good Housekeeping, filled with suggestive headlines like, “You’ll go crazy for D’s nuts.”

Deadpool comic creator, Rob Liefeld, also posted a behind-the-scenes image to prove the cover is real.

“My secret to a proper stuffing? Gentle hands, heavy eye contact, and bundles of thyme,” Reynolds wrote.

David Leitch (Atomic Blonde) directs Deadpool 2 after the original helmer, Tim Miller, dropped off the sequel. Production was briefly halted in Vancouver, Canada in August when Beetz’s stuntwoman, identified as Joi “SJ” Harris, was killed in an on-set accident.

The film is currently scheduled for release on June 1, 2018.
