The ‘Deadpool 3’ Popcorn Bucket Is Just as Degrading to Wolverine as You’d Expect

If the “Dune: Part Two” souvenir popcorn bucket accidentally looked like a sex toy, the “Deadpool and Wolverine” model took the mistake and ran with it.

The “Deadpool 3” popcorn bucket, adorned with “Also Sprach Zarathustra,” is just as degrading to Wolverine as Ryan Reynolds is to his faux-nemesis Hugh Jackman. Perhaps more.

Made to resemble Wolverine’s classic yellow helmet, the popcorn bucket features a gaping mouth. Its promotional video, shared on social media by Reynolds, shows liquid butter dripping down Logan’s masked face. Subtlety has never been in Deadpool’s golf bag.

“Years from now they will look back at 2024 as the year the War of the Popcorn Buckets began,” Reynolds tweeted.

No word yet on which theater chains will carry the bucket, or how much it will retail for. Other novelty popcorn buckets have cost anywhere between $25-$50; the $24.99 “Dune 2” popcorn bucket went viral and quickly sold out.

Reynolds first tweeted about the popcorn bucket after the Super Bowl teaser for “Deadpool and Wolverine.” Marvel CEO Kevin Feige promoted it to theater owners back at CinemaCon, assuring them it would be intentionally horny.

“I don’t want to spoil it, but I will say there are some movies that inadvertently make crude and rude popcorn buckets — and then there are popcorn buckets designed by Deadpool,” said Feige, who also gets a crude shoutout in the “Deadpool and Wolverine” trailer.

Design debates aside, “Dune 2” had the first-mover advantage so maybe we won’t get a surprise “SNL” song about losing your virginity to this bucket. (AMC CEO Adam Aron wasn’t a fan.) Nonetheless, this will undoubtedly be a collector’s item. Creeps.

“Deadpool and Wolverine,” the first R-rated Marvel movie to bring Reynolds’ Deadpool character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and revives Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, opens in theaters July 26.
