Popcorn Bucket Madness: Ryan Reynolds Unveils ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Novelty Bucket for Marvel Film!

Los Angeles, CA – The novel popcorn bucket for the highly anticipated Marvel film “Deadpool & Wolverine” has been unveiled with much fanfare. Actor Ryan Reynolds, known for his role as Deadpool, released a cheeky ad showcasing the bucket, promising a design that is both “crude and rude.” The bucket features a Wolverine helmet with an open mouth, setting the tone for what fans can expect.

Reynolds joked about the popcorn bucket design, stating that future generations will remember the year 2024 as the start of the “War of the Popcorn Buckets.” The promotional video for the bucket shows a hand caressing the helmet, popcorn falling on its “face,” and butter being drizzled down its side, alluding to the playful and mischievous nature of the film.

The bucket, adorned with the phrase “Designed by Deadpool” in red, has been a hot topic since Reynolds teased its unveiling shortly after the release of the “Deadpool & Wolverine” teaser trailer during the Super Bowl. Marvel chief Kevin Feige also promoted the unique popcorn bucket at CinemaCon in April, hinting at its unconventional and Deadpool-inspired design.

While details about which theaters will carry the bucket and its pricing remain unknown, previous novelty buckets have been sold for prices ranging from $25 to $50. The trend of novelty popcorn buckets, like the “Deadpool & Wolverine” bucket, has proven to be a significant revenue booster for theaters, with past releases generating substantial income.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” marks Marvel’s first R-rated superhero movie following Disney’s acquisition of the franchise from 20th Century Fox in 2019. The film is set for release in theaters on July 26, promising a unique and entertaining experience for fans of both characters.
