Since Ryan Reynolds first suited-up as Deadpool, he has become somewhat one-and-the-same with the Merc with a Mouth. Twitter tends to be his primary outlet — as with his ongoing Hugh Jackman troll.
Ryan Reynolds is perhaps an influence to one Twitter user, @AGuyInChair, who made headlines last week for buying the domains AvengersEndgame.com and AvengersEndgameMovie.com well before the upcoming Avengers film’s title was announced… like back in April. He is holding the website domains hostage, in a sense, offering to trade with Marvel for two tickets to the Avengers: Endgame premiere.
Since a PG-13 re-release of Deadpool 2 came to theaters this week, @AGuyInChair used the domains to redirect his Avengers: Endgame websites to the Once Upon a Deadpool page. Marvel or Disney may not have responded to this fun gimmick, but Ryan Reynolds certainly was entertained, because he sent him a gift for it. Take a look:
The tweet by @AGuyInChair shows Ryan Reynolds pulled all the stops with his gift to him, as he sent him headphones and tonic and gin in an impressive case from his gin company, Aviation American Gin. His tweets show a clear excitement for the personal gift from Reynolds, but the man is sticking to his dream to get those two tickets to be among the first to see Avengers: Endgame in April.
This story wouldn’t quite be the same without a tweet from Ryan Reynolds himself, who responded to the Twitter user and received a perfect reaction from @AGuyInChair. Here’s what he said:
It’s quite clever (or suspect) that @AGuyInChair could make a confident guess about the title of the fourth Avengers film that we’ve been theorizing about for months. The announcement that its title would be Avengers: Endgame came with the release of the first trailer for the highly-anticipated MCU movie last week. The Endgame trailer became the most viewed trailer within 24 hours in history, knocking the previous record breaker Avengers: Infinity War from staying at No. 1.
Marvel’s decision to conceal the title for Endgame for so long was just to focus on the release of Infinity War, per Marvel President Kevin Feige. That decision backfired as it created even more speculation over the past eight months about what it could be. Endgame as a title makes sense, since it was uttered by Doctor Strange in Infinity War after seeing the future of the universe played out.
If you visit @AGuyInChair’s Endgame domains today, they no longer redirect to Once Upon a Deadpool. They now feature a video of Santa Claus (possibly the user himself?) addressing “that naughty boy” Kevin Feige to trade the websites for those two golden tickets to Avengers: Endgame. Whether the folks at Marvel respond to his request, at least Deadpool has given him the thumbs up on his maximum effort.
