Ahead Of Deadpool 2's Release, Deadpool And Céline Dion Deliver The Year's Greatest Music Video

The Merc will go on.


Following the hilarious new IMAX posters for the upcoming superhero sequel Deadpool 2, we have an even stranger bit of promotion. It's a music video, featuring none other than Canadian singing superstar Céline Dion, performing her new song 'Ashes.'

The song features on the movie's soundtrack, and musically it's a classic power ballad of the type Dion is known for, most famously her blockbuster song from Titanic. In the video she's assisted by Deadpool himself, performing a deeply moving dance routine while Celine belts out the tune. Check it out below--just make sure you stick around for the post-song exchange between Dion and Deadpool:

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18. It stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable, and Zazie Beetz as Domino, plus TJ Miller, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Julian Dennison. It's directed by David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde). The final trailer was released last month. And of course, this isn't the only musical performance that we've seen Deadpool engage in this week.

In related news, Reynolds recently revealed that he wasn't sure if there would be a Deadpool 3. A movie focusing on the superhero team X-Force has been in development for some time, and the actor explained that he thought that would be the next film to feature the Merc with a Mouth. "It’s an odd thing to say but I don't think there will be a Deadpool 3," he told Starnews Korea, via Slashfilm. "I think going forward it would be an X-Force movie, which would be his team, so to speak."
