Deadpool had one of the most unique and fun marketing strategies we have ever seen, spearheaded by Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds. Now it looks like we are about ready to start revving up for the sequel to the hit R-Rated superhero film. Earlier this year we got our first looks at Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin and Domino and Cable respectively, as well as a short announcement teaser before Logan. Now we have our first look at first poster for the film. Check it out:
The poster is a play on Norman Rockwell’s painting entitled Freedom From Want, also known as The Thanksgiving Picture or I’ll Be Home for Christmas. This play off of the famous painting keeps in the spirit of Deadpool marketing playing to the holidays leading up to the film, which will be released on June 1, 2018.
Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, with Zazie Beetz as Domino, and Josh Brolin as Cable. As well as returning stars Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder. Ryan Reynolds brought back Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen the screenplay and is directed by David Leitch who helmed Atomic Blonde and was a co-director on John Wick 2.
