There’s no doubt that Ryan Reynolds is a great fit as Deadpool, a.k.a. the Merc with the Mouth. Given his past Twitter history, it’s tough to say how many of these Deadpool marketing tweets are his or 20th Century Fox’s but they sure are funny.
Reynolds recently tweeted out an image of a letter asking fans not to spoil the upcoming Deadpool 2. It’s obvious that he was mocking a similar letter tweeted out (unfortunately that tweet has since been deleted) by the Russo Brothers, directors of the recently released Avengers: Infinity War, which was hashtagged with #ThanosDemandsYourSilence.

Of course, the #WadeWilsonDemandsYourSisterSorryStupidAutoCorrectSilence hashtag verifies the fact that he was taking a lighthearted stab at the Russo Brothers’ letter. The Russo Brothers promptly responded in kind with a message from Thanos:

This is all definitely in good fun and it’s refreshing to see fun stuff like this on Twitter instead some of the usually depressing world news tweets. The official synopsis on the final Deadpool 2 trailer is equally fun.
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
At any rate, it’s fun to watch what 20th Century Fox is doing with Deadpool and it’ll be interesting to see how it continues now that Disney owns 20th Century Fox alongside Marvel.
