20th Century Fox and 7-Eleven are joining forces to celebrate the release of the new superhero film, Deadpool 2.

Under the terms of the agreement, participating 7-Eleven’s nationwide will bring the anti-hero (played by Ryan Reynolds) to life with a series of activations, branded consumer products and A/R technology integration.

"To make this even more exciting, 7-Eleven is launching an Augmented Reality (AR) gaming experience, first of its kind in retail, with Deadpool," says Gurmeet Singh, chief digital and chief information officer, 7-Eleven. "Fans can interact with Deadpool and have fun experiences in the 7-Eleven app, unlocking different experiences each week exclusively in the stores nationwide and in Canada. The fans will also be able to share their interactions with Deadpool inside a 7-Eleven store with family and friends. We think Deadpool fans will love seeing him come to life in our stores."

Additional promotion highlights include:

  • The return of the Monster Mutant Red Dawn-flavored Slurpee;

  • Five collectible cups, that each feature Deadpool in a unique pose;

  • Straws that feature tiny Deadpools climbing the sides;

  • Chimichangas in Deadpool 2-themed packaging;
