You probably know that Ryan Reynolds and his masked mercenary Deadpool have a lot in common–they’re rich, good-looking, and have a rapist wit–but one thing you might not know is that they also both have tiny, delicate hands, hands that are just as suited for stirring mashed potatoes as they are for taking out leagues of bad guys. Those insured hands can now be yours for the eating thanks to a new deal with Trolli for Deadpool Tiny Hands candy. What does any of this have to do with the new IMAX posters from uber-talented fan-artists that will be arriving in your favorite movie theater lobbies? Nothing, but both are now available for your consuming pleasure.
Deadpool 2 also stars Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Stefan Kapicic, and Karan Soni, and opens May 18th.

Here’s the official, nonsensical synopsis for Deadpool 2:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’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.
