The marketing for Deadpool 2 continues to come out of left field, and indeed star/producer Ryan Reynolds has now shared a piece of art for the film that is anything but traditional. But already, fans are wondering what this will mean for Fox's Deadpool movies, and if there could be any way for Reynolds - whom many agree is flawless for the role - to stay on board should the deal go through. Even in the new promo art, Cable can be seen with a teddy bear on his belt.
While Disney CEO Bob Iger indicated today that the studio will more than likely leave the Merc with a Mouth's adventures under an R-rated umbrella, could Reynolds be a bit leery of Deadpool's new overlords...?
He took to social media to share a shot of the wittily foul-mouthed character being escorted out of a Disney theme park by a burly guard, captioned: 'Apparently you can't actually blow the Matterhorn'.
Ryan Reynolds' running commentary of the Disney-Fox merger has undoubtedly brought some welcome, light-hearted fun to all the negotiations and red tape. It [Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. Deadpool, released in 2016, became the top-grossing X-Men movie ever with $783 million worldwide, while this year's Logan took $616 million worldwide. We knew things would be different when the very first Deadpool 2 poster was a riff on Norman Rockwell, which itself was debuted in a very special issue of Good Housekeeping.
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel is slated to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
