There is a fresh Deadpool 2 image that has come out with the revised release date of the film. Recently there was an announcement about the much-awaited Deadpool 2’s release getting preponed by a couple of weeks. Thus, we will get to see it in May instead of June. Ryan Reynolds honored the moment by sharing a new Deadpool 2 picture, depicting his The Golden Girls inspired swords.
Ryan shared the latest image on Twitter. It shows Deadpool all decked up for work, glancing at the bottom of his famous swords’ handles. The swords have the names “Bea” and
“Arthur,” to honor the actress who is Wade Wilson’s obsession, due to her performance in The Golden Girls. Reynolds also acknowledged the new release date and a famous dialog from the first movie and also the Deadpool Comics.

It is a pleasant surprise for Deadpool fans to know that the movie will get a theatrical release couple of weeks earlier. The film had a previous release date of June 1. But, this change also makes the movie face extremely strong rivals because of Avengers: Infinity War releases just two weeks before and the weekend to follow will witness the arrival of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Although Slender Man is not such a big movie, it also releases on May 18. All that might impact the box office performance of Deadpool 2, taking into account the various options running in cinemas.
The original Deadpool movie’s success greatly depended on its release plans. The film came out in February without any serious direct competition. It released after a stunning marketing campaign and smashed the box office records to make $783 million globally. Since it had only a $58 million budget, that means great returns for Fox. They would want to get similar or even better box office results from this film. However, a summer release is bound to be a tough challenge for the film to earn $363 million domestically, just like the original Deadpool did.
The most crucial factor would be to find out if Deadpool 2 is worth it or not. Now that Cable and Domino are going to be in the fray, the film carries a lot of expectations. In case the sequel happens to be as good as expected, it won’t be affected by the competition. There are fans of Deadpool 2. Well, the revised release date also means that a trailer might come out anytime as there are just four months left for it to release and watch out for the same. Have a look at the new Deadpool 2 photo shared by Ryan Reynolds on Twitter!
