The world’s most sarcastic superhero just took a spin through the late night circuits, and it’s hard to be even a little upset about it. Deadpool interrupted Stephen Colbert’s Late Show monologue at the Ed Harris theater on Tuesday night, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect: Deadpool 2 is arriving in theaters this weekend, which is probably why the sardonic superhero decided to make his rounds.
