When it was announced that Celine Dion would be making an appearance on the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, fans waited with baited breath for May 3rd to arrive. The music video for “Ashes” was finally unveiled Thursday (May 3) with a premiere on Good Morning America, and it’s epic and grandiose in a way that only Celine Dion can accomplish.
The music video for “Ashes” features a number of clips from the upcoming film, along with a special appearance from the movie’s hero. There’s no official confirmation on whether the music video’s costumed character is, in fact, Ryan Reynolds, but when Deadpool does make their entrance, they do so in heels. Making a pair of heels look effortless is enough of a challenge, and a href=”https://www.fillgap.news/watch-deadpool-2-revealed-funny-new-recap-trailer-ryan-reynolda-superhero-movie/”> Deadpool goes above and beyond, twirling about on the stage with impressive grace. From a daring split to an astonishing high kick, the mysterious masked crusader delivers on a fashionable and unbelievable performance.
The video opens with a radiant Dion standing center stage in a massive auditorium, a translucent blue dress draped over her as she begins to sing underneath the spotlight. By the time the powerful chorus erupts, Deadpool himself dances across the stage in an interpretive performance as flower petals rain down from above. Even with Deadpool’s hilarious antics, the video is dominated by Dion’s elegance and grace.

What’s so shocking about the song is how genuine it sounds. Without the ridiculous visuals of the music video (and the very funny skit you should stick around for at the end), would you have any idea that this song was recorded for a fourth-wall-breaking comic book movie? Just look at the lyrics in the chorus:
Let beauty come out of ashes
Let beauty come out of ashes
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?
Social media is just as stunned by the clip, tweeting their support of the hero. “Deadpool dancing in high heels while Celine Dion sings is something I didn’t know I needed it. What a masterpiece,” one user commented. Another person shared their approval for the fashion-forward character, tweeting: “Deadpool looks amazing in heels.” One follower even touched on the personal importance of the video, saying: “deadpool dancing in heels to queen Celine Dion singing is the most iconic thing I will ever see in my entire life.” And if Deadpool has you thinking you might need to try out a new pair of heels, there are a number of fashionable options available, just in time for prom.
At the end, Deadpool stands up in the auditorium and congratulates Dion, but tells her she’s too good.”This is Deadpool 2, not Titanic,” he says. “You’re at like an 11, we need to get you down to a 5, 5.5 tops.”
“This thing only goes to 11,” Dion snaps back, gesturing at dem pipes. “So beat it, Spider-Man.”
