Batman and Robin. Captain America and Bucky Barnes. The Joker and Harley Quinn. Deadpool and… chimichangas? Wade Winston Wilson doesn’t have a faithful sidekick in Deadpool, which has made ALL the money, and that’s probably for the best. Can you imagine how quickly he’d shove the Boy Wonder through the 47th floor window of a skyscraper? Still, The Late Late Show host James Corden hopes Ryan Reynolds is open to the idea of having a partner (besides Cable) in Deadpool 2, and he’s got some costumed characters in mind.
There’s the Iceman (“The Iceman cometh all over you!”), Strawberry Shortfuse (“I have a really, really short fuse, and I’m a strawberry”), a clam (“I’m open for business”), Potato Man (“If you don’t do this, Marvel will”), Rave-y Crockett (“Get it?”), the Magic Clown, and Ten-ta-kill. Those are terrible, terrible pitches — except for Rave-y Crockett; he has potential — but while surrounded by photos of himself in his office, Reynolds comes up with an idea.
What’s better than one Deadpool? One Deadpool and a Morena Baccarin, but also, TWO Deadpools. They could host SNL together (with musical guest Juice Newton featuring DMX and George Michael), once they’re done going to the bathroom in their costumes, that is.
