Ryan Reynolds answers your dumb questions in latest selfie-style videos
May 09, 2018
Wade Wilson knows a lot more than most comic books characters. He knows how to make a proper quip. He knows what it's like to die. He even knows he's a work of fiction. But fans of Deadpool can now use Google Search to find out exactly how much he knows about a wide range of trivia.
Following in the footsteps of less imaginary celebrities, like Priyanka Chopra, Misty Copeland and Will Ferrell, the "Merc With a Mouth" (played by Ryan Reynolds) is the latest personality to appear in short, selfie-style videos in results for popular Google searches. He'll share good gifts for Mother's Day, explain how to meditate and, of course, relay the release date for "Deadpool 2."
The first film in the series proved that R-rated films could succeed in the superhero arena, and the tongue-in-cheek tone of the movie allowed for a more playful (and lower budget) guerilla marketing campaign. The second film has continued the trend, though the risks are much lower. Just last month, the anti-hero shilled for Kraft, and earlier this week, he started screwing with 7-Eleven. "Deadpool 2" premieres May 18.
