"Are you there God? It's me, Deadpool."
Even though Ryan Reynolds, who portrays the Marvel superhero in the upcoming movie of same name isn't the warm and fuzzy type, he's apparently a fan of Judy Blume.
In a recent tweet, Reynolds is seen dressed as Deadpool clad in his official stretchy red suit and reading the classic book "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret." As bizarre as Deadpool can get, it's not a surprise to see him reading a book written on menstruation with prepubescent girls as its primary audience.
According to Bustle, Reynolds' caption mentioned that Deadpool is "trying to connect." In that case, he was smart to turn to Judy Blume; the author's books are full of life lessons that even a deadly anti-hero could benefit from.
A superhero reading a childhood classic is not something that you see every day. For many of us, "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret" was a crucial part of every teenager's development. They followed Margaret through the relatable challenges of sixth grade, understanding her questions about religion and being different. It's hilarious to imagine Deadpool taking the same journey.
The reason why Deadpool needs help connecting is the experiment that gave him his superpowers. Back when he was still just an average former special force operative, Wade Wilson, he discovered that he had cancer in several crucial organs and made the decision out of desperation.
Now that he's realised the not-so desirable impact of the procedure, he's out to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life. The film, which is part of the X-Men franchise, is set to hit theatres on 12, February, 2016.
