The promotion for Deadpool 2 has been nothing short of incredible. The film franchise already has a huge fan base, but they didn't rest on their laurels. There are new people jumping on the bandwagon every day.
Like Celine Dion:
This is good, because the guy in the red suit, Ryan Reynolds, has a tendency to turn people against him eventually.
For instance, his old friend, Hugh Jackman, who he shows up to annoy at every opportunity:
In real life, Jackman and Reynolds are actually friends. I think. Their social media stuff makes it kind of hard to tell how far the joke goes:
They met on the set of Wolverine: Origins, during which Reynolds was still playing the character of Deadpool, only he looked like this:
I'll never get sick of that gif.
But with the public feuding and petty annoyances, it means Hugh Jackman was making a very grand gesture when he shared this review of the new Deadpool movie:
"I am going to say this once and then delete it quickly: Deadpool 2 is a work of genius," says Jackman. "It is epic... Damn it. I can't believe I said that."
Wow. Could this be true?
Is it really good enough for Jackman to willingly promote it?
Or is he being held hostage? Blink twice if there's a man in red behind the camera!
Fans love the shoutout, but what they really want is to see these two together again:
Will this movie be as epic as Jackman says? Well, the producers are asking that everyone preserve the experience for others by avoiding spoilers at all cost:
So if you do see Jackman make a cameo, don't breathe a word about it. For like, at least 48 hours.
