Deadpool has as few likes an interests. He has an unrelenting craving for chimichangas. He has a penchant for disposing bad-guys with his stabby ticks (aka his swords). He also likes to talks to talk to himself, a lot. What you may not know, though, is that he has a deep rooted fascination for soccer icon Wayne Rooney. This fawning may not have been very well established in the comics but it has certainly come to life in this new movie promo clip.
In the clip, Deadpool has a dream about being a clutch kicker for Manchester United and getting some much reassuring respect from soccer legend Wayne Rooney. And, the real kicker (pun intended)…he sleeps with Wolverine for comfort.
Only Deadpool can make Manchester United not boring.
