Fans of the first film will remember that Deadpool in a scene with Blind Al, cracked a joke about the legendary English footballer and one of the greatest of his era, David Beckham. Now, in a new marketing campaign video for Deadpool 2, the studio has got the soccer legend to be a part of the promotion for the film.
The soccer star’s voice was described as sounding as if he “mouth-sexed a can of helium.” In a new promo for Deadpool 2, Beckham comes face to face with Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth, who makes many elaborate gestures of apology.
Of course, none of those particularly work for Beckham, at least not until Wade goes for the heart and gives him what he wants: tickets to the World Cup. And then, because it’s Ryan Reynolds, Beckham throws shade at the actor’s less than stellar films, taking shots at his box office bombs such as Green Lantern and Blade: Trinity, among others.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 features Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers to the franchise, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison as Russell, and Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy. The film hits theaters on May 18.
When it comes to the marketing campaign of the Deadpool franchise, Fox Studios and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds are always on point. In fact, an argument can be made that no other property markets their films better than this lot.
