Ryan Reynolds Would Like you to Not Spoil Deadpool 2 Please

Earlier today, Wade Wilson had some stern words for Europe, now, he’s got a few for you, too. Ryan Reynolds took to his Twitter page to respectfully ask that you not tell anyone the plot of Deadpool 2 after you see it. Considering 20th Century Fox has been going with the below synopsis, you know Reynolds is serious:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Miami’s hottest bartender, while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover

The actual plot has been kept in a vault under Wolverine’s grave (sorry), but we’ve done our level best at piecing it together with the help of those tasty trailers, teasers, and that Domino clip. From what we’ve seen, we can sort of safely say the sequel is centered on Deadpool being prodded by Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) into protecting a mysterious kid with mysterious powers named Russell (Julian Dennison) from Cable (Josh Brolin), a cyborg killer from the future (and the son of the X-Men’s Cyclops). When Deadpool first meets Cable, it becomes clear to the Merc with the Mouth that he’s going to need help—super help—if he’s got any chance at stopping him. This is what brings us the X-Force, which includes Domino (Zazie Beetz), Bedlam (Terry Crews), Peter (Rob Delaney), who has no discernible powers whatsoever save for being a lovable dork, and old pals Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic).

We know there’s going to be a lot more going on in this film, including that invisible mutant, Lewis Tan’s Shatterstar, IT’s Bill Skarsgard as the mutant Zeitgiest, and Shioli Kutsuna, who many believe is playing the mutant Surge. It’s understandable Reynolds, Fox and everyone else involved in the film would like you to zip it after you’ve seen it so that the rest of the country can enjoy whatever surprises are in store.

Here’s what Reynolds has to say about the potential of you seeing the film and then blabbing about the plot to your friends:
