Another day, another gift from the “12 Days of Deadpool.” On the ninth day of the social media campaign to promote the Ryan Reynolds-fronted superhero film, Fox debuted a new IMAX poster featuring “the merc with the mouth” piggybacking off Colossus.
Deadpool is definitely standing on the shoulders of giants — or, rather, squatting. “I’m having this poster injected directly into my bloodstream,” Reynolds wrote on Twitter of the new one-sheet. Casting has yet to be confirmed for Colossus, the metal-skinned mutant played by Daniel Cudmore in previous X-Men films.
