Ryan Reynolds has appeared in a special video to offer free Deadpool-inspired tattoos to anyone who wants one attending the upcoming Brazil Comic-Con. After an underwhelming debut of the Deadpool/Wade Wilson in 2009's X-Men spinoff X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Reynolds finally got the opportunity to create the Merc with a Mouth in all of his glorious irreverence in the 2016 worldwide blockbuster Deadpool, which earned a smashing $363 million domestically and $420 million domestically for a robust global take of more than $783 million.
With numbers like that, naturally the hype for the untitled Deadpool sequel, due to hit theaters in June 1, 2018, is massive, and Reynolds has come up with an ingenious way of reminding people – at least in Brazil – on a daily basis that the film is coming up. In a new video posted by Reynolds on his Twitter account to hype up the presence of the film at Brazil's Comic-Con Experience (also known as CCXP), the actor appeared as Deadpool to announce that CCXP attendees can get free Deadpool tattoos at the convention.
In the video, Deadpool says he spent up to 20 minutes on Google Translate and countless hours on Telenovela to teach himself everything to know about the Brazilian language. "That's right, this sexy red-spandexed ass learned to speak Portuguese," Deadpool said, laughing, before adding, "Hopefully, I get the accent right."Then, in trademark Deadpool style, the Merc with a Mouth goes on to make the announcement about the free tattoos, but in a voice conspicuously much higher that happens to sound like a woman fluent in the language.
Translated, the announcement began with the words, "Do you want my body – on yours – forever? Well let's make those dreams come true. I'm sending some moderately-trained tattoo artists to use your bare-naked flesh as a beautiful skin canvas, letting their ink-filled needles dance across your body like Shakira in a soda commercial." See the full announcement in the video above.
Not surprisingly, the Deadpool video is filled the character's trademark humor from start to finish, along with the Deadpool designs that the tattoo artists will be offering at CCXP. Fans who are attending CCXP, which runs December 7-10 in San Paulo, Brazil, need to register in advance to get the tattoo, which can be done on a special Deadpool tattoo website.
At the moment, Reynolds is not included on the guest roster at CCXP (which includes the likes of Will Smith, Alicia Vikander, Simon Pegg, and Danai Gurira), but its understandable given that he's probably heavily involved in post-production work on Deadpool 2.
Still, Reynolds is finding fun ways to get out early word about the film, from his Deadpool family Thanksgiving dinner gathering on a teaser poster featuring the cast, to a faux Good Housekeeping cover, and of course the film's quirky teaser trailer that largely features Deadpool in the guise of painter Bob Ross. Given the film's latest comedic bit of marketing with the Brazil tattoo event, it will be interesting to see what sort of promotion Deadpool 2 comes up with next.
