The marketing campaign for Deapool 2 has leapt from parodies of the art world to paying homage to fellow members in the world of film. Released through the DeadpoolCore newsletter, this new poster calls back to the 80’s movie Flashdance as Wade sits provocatively under a shower of ammunition.
Deadpool (Wade Wilson) is an inspiring performance artist who works days in the local steel mill and dances in a bar at night. When Wade’s life gets turned upside down by his boss (Lee Ving), he is forced to choose between a dry life of complacency or living his dreams and staying wet forever.
Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, T.J. Miller as Weseal, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, Jack Kesy as Black Tom, Karan Soni as Dopinder and Julian Dennison. The film opens May 18.
