In the latest issue of Empire (on sale from 23 November) Deadpool, via his good friend Ryan Reynolds, fielded some questions on his incredible year. Here is what the Merc With A Mouth had to say about 2016.
How did you celebrate the success of your movie?
I had the cast of Sesame Street fired.
What’s the most extravagant thing you’ve bought with all that cash?
It’s a Fox film. I was paid in cocaine.
Who’s your unlikeliest celebrity fan?
What was your favourite movie of 2016? (Not your own.)
Hunt For The Wilderpeople. (Serious answer.)
Which film of 2016 would have been improved by you being in it?
The Amanda Knox documentary.
What’s the strangest fan encounter you’ve had this year?
I got my wife pregnant.
You filmed a video intro for our Deadpool issue. How was that?
Inexplicable hell. Don’t ever ask me to do that again or I’ll buy your shitty little magazine company and burn it to shapeless ash. Then I’ll go home to your wives, husbands and lovers to pick up the pieces of their broken little hearts and love them through this tragedy. Sure, it’ll take time, but many minutes later they’ll have forgotten all about you as I sing Taylor Swift’s You Belong With Me in perfect symphony to my acrobatic yet alarmingly emotional love-making.
What can we expect from the sequel?
T.J. Miller snorting live mice off a mirror in the bathroom at the Minneapolis airport. Followed by a festival of handjobs. (Serious answer.)
Are you going to upgrade your suit?
We’re adding tasteful underwear, but the point is, I’m sorry for that thing I said about burning stuff and your families. I don’t know where rage like that comes from.
What are your New Year’s Eve plans?
Who’s asking? Doug? Did Doug contact you?
