As Betty White reaches the ripe old age of 96, she gets a special “Happy Birthday” message from none other than Deadpool himself.
Using Facebook, Deadpool wished White a happy birthday in the only way that he could — by posing with a less-than-flattering image of White eating a hot dog while enjoying a hot dog himself, along with a martini. (Which he’s somehow trying to eat and drink with his mask completely on.) The post can be seen below:
While this is certainly a nice gesture, one wonders what the deal is with Deadpool 2‘s marketing campaign — the film is four months away and we have yet to receive a conventional trailer. Perhaps Betty White has a cameo as a CGI monster or something, and they needed to get her mo-capped appearance just right.
Deadpool 2 is gunning for a May 18, 2018, release date. Its cast includes Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson (Deadpool), Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T. J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapicic as Piotr Rasputin (Colossus), Zazie Beetz as Neena Thurman (Domino), Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers (Cable), and Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy.
