Deadpool's Dream Suite & Deadpool's Super Duper Dance Party

Deadpool had a huge comic con presence this year. Not only did they have a booth inside that featured Deadpool's Super Duper Dance Party (Dance Party Action towards the bottom of this post) but they had giveaways and the Deadpool Dream Suite which one lucky fan got to spend a night in. This was a pretty big promotion for Deadpool 2 which will be released on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, August 21st.

Only a select few con goers won the chance to check out Deadpool's Dream Suite. Only Press/Media were invited to check out Deadpool's Dream Suite before the winner was announced. Deadpool's Dream Suite was inside the Hard Rock Hotel and we were told to get off at a certain floor with a certain room number to go to. The picture above is the door to Deadpool's Dream Suite.
