Watch the Man Utd Deadpool trailer in which Ryan Reynolds’s irreverent antihero dreams about scoring a penalty and celebrating with Wayne Rooney and co.
The Marvel Comics protagonist coolly slots home before planting a kiss on the head of England’s record goal-scorer, subsequently waking up and announcing that he’d just had “that weird Wayne Rooney dream again”.
You can also spot Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Chris Smalling, Bastian Schweinsteiger and David de Gea celebrating the imagined goal, in what appears to be a strengthening of ties between the Old Trafford club and 20th Century Fox.
The Man Utd Deadpool trailer follows hot on the heels of a flurry of tweets from Red Devils stars about Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Revenant, also a 20th Century Fox production:
