Deadpool is a force right now at the box office. Two weeks in a row, the “Merc with a Mouth” has dominated any and all competition. Deadpool currently ranks 6th all-time in earnings for a Rated-R movie with $235.4 million in the U.S., #1 is The Passion of the Christ with $370.8 million.
Contributing to Deadpool’s box office success, Captain America himself went to see the film and apparently loved it.
As we know, Captain America is recruiting heroes to side in his Civil Warbattle with Iron Man. As a sign of appreciation, Ryan Reynolds gave Evans a hashtag endorsement.
Robert Downey Jr. didn’t take to kindly to the Twitter swing.
Then Reynolds responded in true Deadpool fashion.
Unfortunately, we won’t see Deadpool teaming up and/or facing off with the Avengers anytime soon. Like The X-Men, Deadpool is a Twentieth Century Fox property while The Avengers are under Disney’s control. There’s no way Disney would allow its stars to drop the kind of “language” that theater goers loved from Deadpool.
