Ryan Reynolds Congratulates 'Avengers: Infinity War' by Sharing Deadpool's Rejection Letter
By Tina Smithers Peckham
Ryan Reynolds isn't letting a little Avengers rejection get him down.
The Deadpool star congratulated the superhero sequel, Avengers: Infinity War, on its huge box office success, also sharing a photo of a cleverly crafted letter from one "Tony Stark," a.k.a. Iron Man.
In what appears to be a response to a desperate plea from Reynolds' alter ego, Deadpool, about joining forces with the Avengers team, the note reads, " Re: Joining the Avengers. No. Absolutely not. Go bother Prof. X. No. Sincerely, Tony Stark."
The official-looking letter rests on a cluttered desk beside a giant bottle of antacids.
"From a guy who never knows when to quit, I’m glad you guys never did," Reynolds captioned the Instagram snap. "Congrats #Avengers."
