We’re several weeks away from Deadpool 2, which means a massive marketing blitz and more magnificent Deadpool content to share. The latest drop is a music video for Céline Dion’s “Ashes,” which is featured on the film’s soundtrack. In the video, Deadpool does his best Flashdance impersonation, as Canadian national treasure Céline croons, “And when I pray to God all I ask is... can beauty come out of ashes?”
The video features some snippets from the upcoming movie, including Julian Dennison’s mutant character Russell and Deadpool with Vanessa. Deadpool also does some nice pirouettes and grand jetés in between — in stilettos, no less! — as Céline goes full Céline onstage. The performance concludes with a deadpan gag between the two, with Deadpool quipping, “[This is] too good. This is Deadpool 2, not Titanic. You’re an 11. We need to get you down to a five, five and a half tops. Just phone it in.”
Though Céline’s repeated signs of the cross may seem a little, you know... odd, it does help to know the film’s tagline: “The Second Coming.”
Deadpool 2 is out May 18th.
