Joining the likes of other giant statues that have appeared in the country (here and here, for example), this latest jumbo-sized work depicts a reclining Deadpool.

The statue, which takes up a truck’s flatbed, measures around 7 meters (22.96 feet).

Former sumo champ Akebono introduced the statue, which just went on display today in Osaka.

Shame the weather is so crummy today.

After Osaka, the giant Deadpool will go onto to Nagoya and then Tokyo, building up to the film’s June 1 release in Japan.
