Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters this weekend. With the release date looming so closely, we can expect Ryan Reynolds to appear almost everywhere in a promotional run for the film. Recently, Reynolds has gone to hilarious lengths to promote the movie, including singing “tomorrow” while dressed as a unicorn on Korea TV’s, King of Mask Singer, dressing up in high-heels for a new Celine Dion music video, releasing an Avengers: Infinity War parody letter, and popping up in Hugh Jackman’s hotel room. Last night (May 15), Deadpool crashed The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
“Of course, Summer blockbuster season is in full swing. There’s so many superhero movies this year,” begins Colbert during his monologue. He continues on to name Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther and Venom before asking the audience when the superhero movie fatigue would finally set in. “At what point will audiences say, ‘Enough with the superheroes’?”
“Is it ‘Deadpool 2?’ I bet it’s ‘Deadpool 2,'” jokes Reynolds as he graces the stage in full Deadpool gear. “Please, guys, no one stand up,” Deadpool joked. “It’s CBS, I know how old your audience is.” He openly admits that he is only there to promote his new movie, and graciously accepts his own invitation to be the guest star of the evening. Stephen Colbert then reveals he already has a guest, Jamie Foxx, to Deadpools disappointment. “I’ll tell you who should NOT be on your show,” suggest Deadpool. “Ryan Reynolds. Huge asshole. He’s like the poor man’s version of Ryan Reynolds.” Check out the hilarious interaction below, and catch Deadpool 2 when it hits theaters this Friday.
