Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Ryan Reynolds shared on Twitter Thursday a Thanksgiving-themed poster for Deadpool 2 and a Good Housekeeping.cover featuring his superhero character.

"My secret to a proper stuffing? Gentle hands, heavy eye contact, and bundles of thyme. #DeadHouseKeeping #Deadpool," the actor wrote alongside the cover to the latest issue of Good Housekeeping that features the Merc with a Mouth holding up a turkey while wearing an apron with a Christmas tree.

"Deadpool stuffs our holiday issue," reads the caption at the top of the magazine. The issue contains recipes from Deadpool for holiday entrees such as D's Spiced Nuts among other comically named treats.

"Deadpool's persistence to be in Good Housekeeping was impressive - initially we had no idea who he was, let alone that he was a fan of the magazine," said editor-in-chief of Good Housekeeping Jane Francisco. "But after repeated attempts to ignore his... passion... we came to a compromise. He could appear in one issue, if he promised to stop leaving care packages at our editors' homes and agreed to maintain a 50-foot distance from the Good Housekeeping offices and our staff."

"After years of weekly emails and countless carrier pigeons, Good Housekeeping finally returned my calls," added Deadpool. "And while it's a dream come true, apparently we have vastly different opinions on the definition of a 'holiday spread'..."

The poster also shared by Reynolds on Thursday, acts as the first poster for Deadpool 2 and features the character serving Thanksgiving dinner to the cast of the film alongside Josh Brolin's Cable.

Characters featured sitting around the table include Domino (Zazie Beetz), Weasel (TJ Miller), X-Men members Colossus (Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and Dopinder the taxi driver (Karan Soni). Featured in the background is a photo of Marvel comics legend Stan Lee.

"Thanksgiving in our house is a glorious, non-stop car accident set to the music of cocaine," Reynolds captioned the poster.

Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters on June 1.
