Avengers: Infinity War made history by doing a business of $630 million on its opening weekend, overtaking the record of $542 million set by the Fate of the Furious in 2017.
It has been years since Tony Stark turned down Deadpool, however, the foul-mouthed superhero isn’t any sore loser. Consequently, when ‘’Avengers: Infinity War’’ made history worldwide after its blockbuster opening weekend, Ryan Reynolds, aka Deadpool, decided to congratulate them with a Deadpool joke.
On his Twitter page which has over a () million followers, Ryan posted a letter in which Tony Stark rejected the request of Deadpool for a place in the mass of Marvel superheroes. The photo posted by the 41-year-old was a letter from Tony Stark.
The subjection line of the rejection letter contained the phrase: ‘’Re: Joining the Avengers’’ before reading, “No. Absolutely not. Go bother Prof. X. No.”
Ryan Reynolds posted this letter with the caption: “From a guy who never knows when to quit, I’m glad you guys never did. Congrats #Avengers.”

It needs to be remembered that while Ryan is taking the mickey out of Avengers, it hails from the same Marvel Comic series as Deadpool. However, due to licensing issues, the character of Reynolds in Deadpool is confined to the X-Men based film of Fox Studios.
The whole scenario could change though with Disney’s decision to buy 21st Century Fox for around $52.4 billion dollars. If the deal goes through, the rights to both Deadpool as well as Avengers would belong to Marvel Cinematic Universe, a Disney-owned enterprise.
Reynold’s Tweet on Sunday wasn’t the first time that Reynolds has praised a superhero movie. For instance, when Gal Gadot starring Wonder Women beat the record of Deadpool at the domestic box office, there were words of praise from Ryan for his fellow superhero.
In the light of his history of spreading love, it might not be wrong for Reynolds, therefore, to expect his fellow stars return the favor upon the release of Deadpool 2 later next month.
