DEADPOOL 2 will arrive in theaters this May, and while he's technically a character ripped from the pages of Marvel Comics, the antics of the entertaining, yet vulgar hero can make merchandising a little bit tricky. Ryan Reynolds' on-screen portrayal of "The Merc with a Mouth" has spun a lot of attention back toward the source material, and that's had fans and collectors eagerly-awaiting some new gear for 2018. Hasbro is answering the call for older fans, with a new assortment of comic-inspired DEADPOOL toys, including action figures and role-play items... in adult sizes! Check out the official details below, direct from my friends at Hasbro!
