20th Century Fox raised the bar for successful marketing campaigns with the first Deadpool back in 2016. Now we have the first official poster for Deadpool 2 and Wade Wilson himself would be proud.
The new poster is a hilarious take on Norman Rockwell’s Freedom from Want painting, which shows a family enjoying a peaceful Thanksgiving dinner.
Deadpool and Cable are the mom and dad of this unorthodox family, surrounded by familiar faces like Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Weasel, Vanessa, Dopinder and Blind Al. Also featured in the poster is series newcomer Zazie Beatz as Domino. Check it out for yourself below!
Keen eyes will spot a Stan Lee cameo on the top right of the poster, setting fans up for what is sure to be a hilarious guest appearance in the film itself.
Ryan Reynolds also took to Twitter today to drop this new cover of Good Housekeeping magazine featuring Deadpool preparing a holiday feast.

6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
