Marvel isn't new to the superhero wedding game, and this April comic book fans everywhere will get to witness the most unique ceremony in the company’s history. In an announcement over at Nerdist, the House of Ideas has confirmed that the company's resident sociopath, Deadpool, is getting hitched to a yet-unknown bride in the pages of Deadpool #27.
While the Internet will be speculating wildly over the identity of the bride, we suggest that you put your time to better use by staring at the truly awe-inspiring cover by artist Scott Koblish. Featuring 244 different characters from around the Marvel universe, this piece of art is something you just need to soak in.
In an interview with the site, writer Gerry Duggan had this to say about the decision to wife-up Wade Wilson:
The honest answer is that it was written into a Deadpool story, but more or less as a gag, and Jordan D. White, the editor, was like a dog with a bone. He was like, “No, no, no – this is going to be a big deal.” You know, we wrote it, so it’s not like we weren’t behind it. The fun thing has been – after his misadventures, I guess you’d call them, in North Korea, in the story arc The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, he learned a lot about himself and why he is the way he is. He doesn’t really have too much of a life. Yes, this is a knee-jerk reaction from a wounded guy to go out there and sort of do something crazy to sort of jump start a life, but there is a real emotional reason for doing it, so I think that will be the part that will resonate. Then the actual gags of the wedding will be fun too, but there is a real grounding to it, and that’s what will make it fun to explore.
As for how long she’ll be around, I’m not 100% sure, because when you get close to Deadpool, that’s maybe when I start to think about adding you in my deadpool.
