Deadpool and Spider-Man have a great (okay, sorta dysfunctional) relationship in the comics, and fans have been clamoring to see it translated on the big screen for a long time. There have been some mixed messages regarding a crossover, even some very interesting fan theories. But so far, the characters' shared cinematic future is something that will remain in the realm of pipe dreams rather than reality.
Fortunately, while we wait to see what happens with that hoped-for crossover, we've got the next best thing. #RyanReynolds has trolled the webslinger on social media, folks, and it was amazing.
Deadpool 2 is currently in production, so Reynolds took to Twitter to post a picture of himself alongside members of the Vancouver Police Department hanging out on set. Notice Reynolds and a few of the cops are pulling off Spidey's iconic hand gesture? Yeah, that's part of a bigger story:
There's something about Deadpool using #PeterParker's hand gesture that just feels right. Anyway, movie productions are often very disruptive –– especially in major cities like Vancouver. Reynolds however, was smart enough to shift the blame to our beloved wall-crawler for the problems that his superhero flick may have caused in the Canadian city.
"With great power, comes great... inconvenience. Huge shout-out to the incredibly hard working #VDP. And I'd like to especially thank the great people of Vancouver for putting up with road closures and traffic delays as we film Spider-Man downtown. #YVR #GreatCops."
You beautifully clever and conniving creature. Not cool, Reynolds. Not cool. Spidey already has enough on his plate with J. Jonah Jameson blaming him for literally everything that's wrong in the world, to have you add to his bad reputation.
Deadpool 2's Awesome Marketing Campaign
That hilarious post –– aside from being yet another piece of evidence that Reynolds really wants to work with Spidey –– was another piece in Deadpool 2's marketing campaign. There may not be giant billboards for Wilson's second cinematic adventure yet, but Ryan Reynolds has been making sure to keep the sequel in our minds by sharing fun first looks and teases from the set through social media.
He announced the casting of Julian Dennison as a mysterious character through this almost inexplicable image:
And of course we can't forget his Cable diss. You see, Ryan Reynolds got completely ripped to play the Merc with a Mouth, but his envy-inducing physique pales in comparison to the size of #JoshBrolin. I mean, the man is built like a wall. In order to feel better about himself, our real-life #WadeWilson tried to lessen his co-star's gains by chalking them up to a simple camera effect:
All these pictures just made my patience to wait for the sequel wane even more. Hopefully we get some more hilarious pictures and disses from Reynolds in the near future as we prepare for Deadpool 2 to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
