Deadpool fans are going to get the chance to play a Cards Against Humanity-style game with the unique perspective of the Merc with a Mouth. Deadpool has been a cult favorite Marvel Comic book hero since the early 1990s and has exploded in mainstream popularity after the smashing success of the first movie back in 2016. Now, a sequel is on the way this summer and it's counted as one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. So, it makes sense that the merchandising game is kicking into high gear ahead of the untitled Deadpool 2.
The new game is called Deadpool vs. the World and aside from it looking like a Cards Against Humanity style game, not much else is known about it. There appears to be the famous fill-in-the-blank cards that are tailor-made for the Deadpool crowd. But as far as details, it looks like this game will put players inside Wade Wilson's twisted head. A synopsis for the game reads.
"Featuring 100 custom illustrations, gameplay is such that a WTF? card is flipped over, and players must select a wet-erase Caption card from their hand, and fill in its blank with the pens provided, to come up with the wittiest caption. Winning requires players to tread outside of their comfort zone and fill in the blanks of cards that elicit inappropriate responses, ensuring outcomes of surprise, shock, and outbursts of laughter."
Deadpool vs. the World will be available this summer and the retail price will be $24.95. Some of the cards have been shown and the cover of the game appears to be Deadpool scratching his rear end on a cactus, which does not seem like very much fun. Hopefully players won't have to worry about pulling off some wacky stunts like rubbing themselves on a cactus. In other words, this game looks like it's perfect for fans of the Merc with a Mouth.
Deadpool 2 is currently doing reshoots in Vancouver, Canada and Ryan Reynolds shared some pictures from the set. However, they weren't your normal behind-the-scenes-pictures. Instead, The Make-A-Wish and Canada's Children's Wish foundations were on hand and led on a tour by Reynolds who then presented them all with a bamboo replica of Deadpool's katana swords, made by prop maker, Dan Sissons. From the looks of the new card game, it doesn't look like the kids who were invited to the Deadpool 2 set will be old enough to participate in the adult-style game.
Expect to see a lot more Deadpool merchandise flooding the market ahead of the release of Deadpool 2 on May 18th. The card game is likely only the beginning (a Deadpool Monopoly game has also been announced), but it looks like it will all have the unique spin that only Wade Wilson can deliver. No official release date is set for Deadpool vs. the World but expect the game to come out just in time for the sequel to hit theaters.
