Avengers: Infinity War … PASS! Solo… NO Thanks. Jurassic World ... YAWN!
DEADPOOL 2 – Absolutely.
Summer 2018 is packed with BIG action movies. Dinosaurs, a superhero war, an origin story, but is that all there is? What about that wisecracking man in the red suit? You know, the one who KNOWS that he’s not a real person? The one who will often break character so we know he’s in on the joke?
Deadpool 2, opening May 18th, is the return of our mutant hero. Well aware that he is a fictional comic book character, Ryan Reynolds is back as Wade Wilson, Deadpool. Forming the “X-Force” a team of mutants, set to protect a young mutant from the time-traveling soldier, Cable. (Josh Brolin).
Much like the first film, Deadpool 2, is promised to be full of non-stop action and R-rated humor that breaks the fourth wall, something done by few other characters in the Marvel universe.
To promote the film’s May 18th opening, a 21 and over Deadpool 2 Pop Up Bar is heading to Downtown LA. After a run at Brooklyn’s Alligator Lounge in late April, the pop up will open in LA from May 10th through the 12th at Slipper Clutch from 7 – 11:30 pm each night. Better known as “Sister Margaret’s School for Wayward Girls” by Deadpool fans, these bars will transform, for a short time, into the manipulative mutants favorite dive bar and break the fourth wall better than Deadpool himself.
Attending will get you free chimichangas (a Deadpool favorite), and proceeds will benefit the Downtown Film Festival LA, who are cohosting the event. Both New York and LA events are being sponsored by Fox and Mike’s Hard. Attendees will be served Deadpool inspired Harder cans with limited edition flavors like black cherry and blood orange. Mike’s Hard will also be hosting contests where fans can win an all expenses trip for two to the Deadpool 2 premiere and red carpet event AND a trip to San Diego’s Comic Con this July.
For all the wisecracking, wall-breaking-dark-humor-loving fans, Deadpool 2 opens May 18th everywhere.
