Don’t bother checking your calendar, because it isn’t April 1, and though we’re used to seeing major films make their world debut on magazine covers, we here at ComingSoon.net must qualify this as a new one. 20th Century Fox‘s Deadpool 2 has landed on the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine, which you can find in the gallery below along with the first teaser poster for the film.
“Deadpool’s persistence to be in Good Housekeeping was impressive – initially we had no idea who he was, let alone that he was a fan of the magazine,” Jane Francisco, Editor in Chief, Good Housekeeping said in a statement. “But after repeated attempts to ignore his… passion… we came to a compromise. He could appear in one issue, if he promised to stop leaving care packages at our editors’ homes and agreed to maintain a 50-foot distance from the Good Housekeeping offices and our staff.”
“After years of weekly emails and countless carrier pigeons, Good Housekeeping finally returned my calls,” Deadpool adds. “And while it’s a dream come true, apparently we have vastly different opinions on the definition of a ‘holiday spread’…”
Ryan Reynolds is reprising his role as the Merc with a Mouth alongside Zazie Beetz as the luck-manipulating mutant Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch) is attached to play the film’s central villain, which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy. Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) have also joined the film in mystery roles.
Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.
Deadpool 2 is set to debut in theaters on June 1, 2018.
