I Wish We Could Sew His Mouth Shut Again: Ryan Reynolds’ ‘Deadpool’ Takes On Halloween
To celebrate both Halloween and the upcoming release of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds put back on his superhero costume, and hit the streets on Halloween, meeting up with a bunch of trick-or-treaters dressed up as the X-Men. The Merc With the Mouth tried to recruit these pint-sized mutants to join his Halloween team, but it didn’t quite go according to plan.
Before you think this is just another cutesy promo video, know that Reynolds never breaks character as Deadpool. It’s basically just Deadpool cursing and insulting a group of kids dressed as Storm, Beast, Wolverine, Mystique, Magneto and Cyclops. “I think Deadpool may have been drunk,” says a young boy dressed as Cyclops, and that’s pretty much all you need to know about this video.
And, even these group of kids know that Green Lantern sucked.
“Weren’t you Green Lantern?” asks one of the kids. “What does this suit look like to you? Does it look like a leprechaun had sex with a cartoonist?”
Of course, at the end, they all took a group photo to commemorate the occasion and Deadpool couldn’t help but give the camera the middle finger.
Deadpool opens in theaters on February 12.
