Ryan Reynolds has put up a new pink “Deadpool” suit for sale to raise funds in the fight against cancer.
Ryan Reynolds who plays Deadpool in Marvel film franchise, shared a video on Twitter to announce the nonprofit F**k Cancer drive through an Omaze campaign. He urged his fans to support the cause by donating money and get a chance to win the pink Deadpool suit he worn during the video. The suit was worn once by Ryan Reynolds and is made lovingly with over 10,000 individually selected pink gummi bears. Apart from the suit the contest offers a range of personalised gifts from Deadpool.
In a “special message from Deadpool,” Reynolds said that the new bright pink suit was for the “world to see that I have a big old heart-on… That’s heart with a ‘t’… For my new obsession, pink – the colour, not the singer. Personally I’m more of a Celine guy.” “This is one fight where everyone can be a hero, no superpowers, capes or lame CG costumes needed – just your money. Seriously, we need that – these suits aren’t cheap,” he added.
