Deadpool has Thanksgiving in new movie poster, lands 'Good Housekeeping' cover
UPI News Service, 11/11/2017
Ryan Reynolds shared on Twitter Thursday a Thanksgiving-themed poster for his upcoming "Deadpool 2" movie and a "Good Housekeeping" cover featuring his superhero character.
"My secret to a proper stuffing? Gentle hands, heavy eye contact, and bundles of thyme. #DeadHouseKeeping #Deadpool," the actor wrote alongside the cover to the latest issue of "Good Housekeeping" that features the Merc with a Mouth holding up a turkey while wearing an apron with a Christmas tree.
"Deadpool stuffs our holiday issue," reads the caption at the top of the magazine.
The issue contains recipes from Deadpool for holiday entrees such as D's Spiced Nuts among other comically named treats.
"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," said editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping Jane Francisco.
"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," added Deadpool.
"And while it's a dream come true, apparently we have vastly different opinions on the definition of a 'holiday spread'..."
The poster also shared by Reynolds on Thursday, acts as the first poster for "Deadpool 2" and features the character serving Thanksgiving dinner to the cast of the film alongside Josh Brolin's Cable.
