Yes, that really is Deadpool at the Dubai Mall
Yes, Deadpool 2 had landed in the UAE and that means the film’s particular brand of viral marketing has, too.
Thanks to an Instagram post from both Ryan Reynolds, who plays the titular Deadpool in the film, as well as our favourite retail destination here in Dubai, we know that one of the iconic waterfall pearl divers is not what they seem.
Thanks to the post we can see that instead of the diver’s regular silver hue, he has instead been replaced by a Deadpool 2 lookalike.
Ryan Reynolds called the stunt incredible, while the Dubai Mall used their social media to remind Marvel fans to pick up tickets to the R-Rated superhero flick.
The second film in the franchise is doing ridiculously well at the box office – it made just over 300 million globally on its first weekend – which makes it the second highest-grossing R-Rated film ever. The first? That would be Deadpool number one.
Oh, and there is no word how long Deadpool will remain at the Dubai Mall. So if you want to see it in person, you had better get a wriggle on.
