20th Century Fox and Deadpool have announced a partnership with the fundraising platform Omaze in support of Fuck Cancer. The partnership gives fans the chance to win an exclusive, custom-made pink Deadpool suit. Proceeds will benefit the work of Fuck Cancer, the nonprofit dedicated to cancer prevention, early detection and providing support to those affected.
Deadpool, played on screen by Ryan Reynolds, is Marvel’s wisecracking, foul-mouthed superhero. Deadpool’s alter ego is Wade Wilson, a mercenary with terminal cancer whose experimental cancer treatment has left him disfigured. Deadpool first made an appearance in a supporting role in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” The first “Deadpool” movie, released in February 2016, is the highest-grossing R-rated superhero movie so far, with $363 million in ticket sales at the U.S. box office. “Deadpool 2” is scheduled to be released on May 18, 2018, and it could break that record.
