AceShowbiz - On April 24, "Deadpool 2" released a new poster, which might be the most ridiculous poster that the movie has ever had. The new poster featured the Merc with a Mouth riding a unicorn along with other "Deadpool 2" characters.
In the poster, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), Domino (Zazie Beetz) and Cable (Josh Brolin), who had his teddy bear attached on belt, rode a white unicorn with Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) holding on its tail. Meanwhile, Brianna Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead slid down the cloud below the rainbow.
On the same day, 20th Century Fox's Home Entertainment also released a special "Deadpool" Blu-ray edition to commemorate the movie's two-year anniversary. The press release read, "It's been two long years since the Merc with a Mouth last graced movie screens with his presence. Now he's back with the best anniversary present money can buy (without needing a safe word and a shot of penicillin)."
Directed by David Leitch, the upcoming movie centers on the Merc with a Mouth who forms a superhero group called X-Force to protect a young mutant (Julian Dennison) from Cable, a time-traveling cyborg mercenary. Ryan writes the script along with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. In addition to penning the script, Ryan serves as producer alongside Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
Previously, it was rumored that Julian's character was Firefist. The speculation arose when Wade Wilson referred to Julian as "Russell". Russell a.k.a. Firefist is a young mutant who can create and manipulate fire and is affiliated with X-Factor.
Other cast members include Morena Baccarin who will play Wade Wilson's (a.k.a. Deadpool) fiancee Vanessa, T.J. Miller who will portray Weasel and Jack Kesy who is cast as Black Tom Cassidy. Other characters included in X-Force team are Terry Crews's Bedlam, Lewis Tan's Shatterstar and Rob Denaley's Peter.
"Deadpool 2" is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 18.
