AceShowbiz - After "Avengers: Infinity War" scores $250 million domestically and grosses a foreign total of $380 million in its opening weekend, Ryan Reynolds does not wait to congratulate crew and cast of the movie. He delivers a congratulatory message via Twitter.
The "Deadpool 2" actor posts on Twitter a picture of what seems like a rejection letter from "Stark Industries." Apparently, Reynolds' Deadpool once tried to join the Avengers, but he was rejected by company boss Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man. Stark does not even mince words in the letter as he writes, "No. Absolutely not. Go bother Prof. X. No." The letter is closed with the company boss' signature.
Reynolds captions the picture with a congratulatory message that reads, "From a guy who never knows when to quit, I'm glad you guys never did. Congrats #Avengers."

Deadpool frequently pokes fun at the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He drops hints and makes jokes about the fact that actor Josh Brolin plays both Cable in "Deadpool 2" and also Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War", making it almost impossible for Deadpool to appear in the latter. Those remarks may constitute his eagerness to join the Avengers, but that wish has not been fulfilled yet.
As for "Deadpool 2", it will tell a story of the titular character who forms a group called X-Force to protect a young mutant from Cable. X-Force team includes Zazie Beetz's Neena Thurman / Domino, Briana Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Jack Kesy's Black Tom Cassidy, Stefan Kapicic's Colossus, Terry Crews' Bedlam, Lewis Tan's Shatterstar, Bill Skarsgard's Zeitgeist and Rob Delaney's Peter. Leslie Uggams and Karan Soni will reprise their roles as Blind Al and taxi driver Dopinder, respectively.
David Leitch directs the movie based on the script penned by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Reynolds. In addition to starring and writing the script, Reynolds will serve as producer alongside Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
"Deadpool 2" will be released on May 18 in the United States.
