Deadpool becomes first fictional character to personally answer questions on Google

Since Deadpool 2 is almost in theaters, the Merc With a Mouth is really stepping up his social media presence. Not just that, he's stepped up his presence all over the internet— and today he even took over Google.

Infiltrating the gargantuan search engine, Deadpool was able to personally respond to any and all questions addressed to him. Some were as innocent as asking when Deadpool 2 comes out (May 18), while others asked more complicated questions, like how Ryan Reynolds cuts his hair (he cuts it with a hammer, though Deadpool doesn't recommend it).

The most popular question that Deadpool (actually actor Ryan Reynolds in full costume and character) answered was "Should I watch Deadpool with my parents?"

As Deadpool says in his video response, whether it's because you're not 17 yet, or because you don't have a date... the answer is still yes.

In December of 2017, Google began allowing certain key individuals to answer questions about themselves that were being asked by visitors to the site. These video answers are often tied to a prominent occasion — The Grammy Awards, International Women's Day, and Teacher's Appreciation Day have all been celebrated. Up until now, the questions have always been answered by real people — this is the very first time that a fictional character has gone live on Google Search.

Popular questions to Deadpool included asking him if water was wet, asking if the earth was flat, and asking about good Mother's Day gifts. You can take a look at all of Deadpool's video answers right here.

Deadpool may have been the first fictional character to participate in this process, but something tells us that he won't be the last. There is a lot of potential here, so who knows what other fictional know-it-alls could pop up? Any suggestions?

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18. We know because we asked him.
