Fans and geeks of all stripes have either already arrived in or are headed to San Diego for this year’s Comic-Con, but so is a certain superhero. Evidently Deadpool is also on his way to the convention, but he needs your help getting there…which truthfully may not be in your best interest. If you’re driving around the area, you may see this bizarre sight below.
Earlier today, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds posted this picture of the Merc With The Mouth on Twitter, trying to hitchhike to Comic-Con wearing a sarape and sombrero. The caption refers to The Golden Girls, the titular protagonist’s favorite TV show. Humorously, Reynolds’ tweet lead to the rest of his costars tweeting out the other lyrics from the sitcom’s theme song, which you can check out here.
There’s no way that Deadpool is going to be able to get a hotel room now, but that’s not the point. Here’s the deal, people: if you pick this guy up, you’re putting your life in danger. Oh sure, he may be able to pay you, presumably in cash or chimichangas, but you’re more likely to get veered off course and become entangled in one of his violent shenanigans. All that’s going to get you is a devastating injury or mental trauma that will require years of intensive counseling. Do yourself a favor and don’t pick up the masked man in the skintight red suit.
Fourth wall breaking aside, Reynolds confirmed earlier this week that he will appear at Comic-Con. 20th Century Fox will also have a panel at Hall H this Saturday at 5:45 p.m., and while Fantastic Four and X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut are the only Marvel projects that are officially being highlighted, surprises have been teased. Maybe Reynolds will pop in during the panel and, if the attendees are lucky, show something Deadpool related.
After a disappointing introduction in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Wade Wilson will finally get his due next year in Deadpool by getting to be his chaotic, wacky self. Deadpool shows Wade after he gets accelerated healing powers from a rogue experiment and as seeks revenge against the man that ruined his life. The film’s supporting cast includes T.J. Miller as Weasel, Morena Maccarin as Vanessa Carlysle (a.k.a. Copycat), Ed Skrein as Ajax, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Andre Tricoteux as Colossus.
Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.
