In the league of unlikely pairings, the foul-mouthed sort-of-hero Deadpool and international pop sensation Celine Dion are very much two cards drawn at random. Fun fact though, the man behind the mask Ryan Reynolds and Dion are both Canadian. That explains it!

The original Deadpool was kind of a big deal, making $783 million on a budget of just $58 million — and that’s after Fox demanded cuts late into production.

Deadpool, of course, knows she’s out of his league. But he’s just going to have to work harder because Celine is a classy lady who doesn't do anything halfway. Maybe by Deadpool 3, she might even be bothered to learn his name!
