In honor of tonight’s premiere of Deadpool on FX, the titular Merc with a Mouth (Ryan Reynolds) has partnered with fundraising platform Omaze to support the non-profit F*ck Cancer. In the video above, the snarky R-rated comic book hero dons a pink version of the Deadpool suit — which can be yours!
The fundraising campaign gives fans the opportunity to win the custom-made pink suit via a donation through Omaze. The proceeds will benefit Fuck Cancer, a nonprofit dedicated to cancer prevention, early detection and providing support to those affected. The cause is close to Deadpool’s heart and the name of the nonprofit couldn’t be any more perfect for the foul-mouthed assassin.
The fundraising campaign also comes ahead of the May 18 release of 20th Century Fox’s sequel to the 2016 comic book pic that became the biggest R-rated movie of all time with its $783.1 million global gross. In Deadpool 2, our titular hero (aka Wade Wilson) is joined by Josh Brolin’s mutant, cyber-armed baddie Cable and some new Marvel characters — or as Wade calls them his “super duper f*cking group” that is “tough, morally flexible — and can carry their own franchise for 10 to 12 years — to stop him. That includes Zazie Beetz as Domino along with Terry Crews, and back from the first pic Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead and the Stefan Kapicic as Colossus. Deadpool christens them his X-Force.
