Ryan Reynolds Congratulates 'Avengers: Infinity War' Cast, Shares Deadpool Rejection Letter From Tony Stark
Ryan Reynolds congratulates the Avengers: Infinity War for a successful opening and shows just how much a good sport Deadpool is after receiving a rejection letter from Tony Stark.
The 41-year-old actor took to Twitter to air his compliments for the hit Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War, which opened to a whopping $250 million domestically, beating out Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $247.96 million. However, Reynolds also attached a short but straight-to-the-point letter from Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).
"From a guy who never knows when to quit, I'm glad you guys never did. Congrats #Avengers," Reynolds tweeted.
Though as much as Deadpool was consistent and persistent in joining the studded superheroes of the Avengers, he was let down via a concise letter signed by Stark. There wasn't any mention of his name nor anything that addressed the comical superhero.
"Re: Joining the Avengers," the letter read, "No. Absolutely Not."
That's not all, Stark said Deadpool should just disturb Prof X. Interestingly, the letter was dated April 12, 2012, before the first Avengers film was even released. Even so, the hero, known for breaking his fourth wall, seemed to have no bad blood toward the acclaimed group and even congratulated them.
His move wasn't entirely out of the blue. Avengers: Infinity War had broken record with its $630 million opening worldwide, which dethroned The Fate of the Furious, which got $543 million, for being the biggest global opening film.
Deadpool might be considered as one of the most determined to join the Earth's Mightiest Heroes. He must be credited, though, for his efforts in a bid to be one of the Avengers.
Deadpool had long hinted his desire to join the Avengers, even starring in the latest film's trailer as everyone. The trailer for the second installment of his titular film also dipped on the Avengers: Infinity War when he referred to Josh Brolin as Thanos.
While Deadpool didn't make the cut for the Avengers, there is still a silver lining for him, considering the Disney-Fox merger news already in the horizon, but there is still no final word yet, though the deal is expected to be finalized by next year.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time Deadpool has hailed fellow superheroes in their successes. He praised and lauded Wonder Woman for a job well done on the titular film's success.
"The Merc may be filthier, but her B.O. is stronger. Congrats," he tweeted.
Deadpool is going to have his time in the big screen, as the second film of the Merc with the Mouth hits theaters on May 18.
