Céline Dion Performs "Ashes" For Deadpool 2 Soundtrack

This week, apparently somebody, probably Ryan Reynolds, is hoping history repeats itself, as Deadpool, of all people, has managed to lure Dion back into English-language pop music with "Ashes".

Just when it seemed like the record-breaking success of Avengers: Infinity War might make everyone forget about the fact that there are other movies hitting theaters this summer, Deadpool steals back the spotlight. Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool team continue to amaze with the amount of fantastic marketing they have done for the franchise.

That's thanks not only to those great big lungs of Dion's, but also a pretty incredible music video featuring Deadpool sashaying across a stage. What do you think of this latest music video? It's possible that it's exclusively for the marketing of the film but I hope we see a bit more milage come from the joke.

He first praises her singing and then tells her in typical "Deadpool" deadpan humour that her performance was too good for the film. Dion replies, "Thank you so much, thank you".

THR reports that the highest test screening that the original Deadpool film got was 91, so if you were into that, prepare to be blown out of the water with this apparently even better follow-up.

But you don't want us to spoil it for you.

Perplexed, Dion asks "OK. why?".

"This is Deadpool 2, not Titanic".

She responds: "Listen, this thing only goes to eleven, so beat it Spider-Man".
