First, the Russo Brothers asked fans not to spoil Avengers: Infinity War, then Deadpool 2 made fun of them for it. Now, the Russo Brothers have responded, in perfect Deadpool fashion. Yesterday, Deadpool 2 posted a hilarious "spoiler warning" that was done in the same fashion as the one the Russo Brothers had posted regarding Infinity War. What did the Russos think of that, well, their response required no words, though they did use one. Just give it a look.
It's the sort of response you'd expect from Deadpool, but not so much to him, a massive Infinity Gauntlet-clad middle finger to the Merc with a Mouth.
Ahead of Avengers: Infinity War the Russo's put a letter on social media asking fans who saw the movie early to remain quiet so those that came later would be just as surprised. Deadpool 2 has now asked the same thing, though, of course, they did it in about the most snarky way possible. I thought it would be left at that, but apparently, the Russo Brothers have decided to use their newly refreshed Twitter account to poke some fun back at Ryan Reynolds with this great image.
Of course, Ryan Reynolds couldn't just leave it there. He has, in turn, responded to the Russo Brothers on Twitter, though in this case, he's just accepting the middle finger graciously. He knows that taking such direct aim at such a big movie he was going to get some sort of response, and he agrees this response is completely justified.
This particular battle of the superhero movies is probably over, but next weekend there will be another one when Deadpool 2 opens. Avengers: Infinity War is still putting up big box office numbers right now, but it almost certainly will finally fall from the top of the heap when Deadpool 2 has its opening weekend. I fully expect to get a sarcastic comment from Deadpool if and when that happens. The marketing for Deadpool 2 has been top notch, and how will the movie possibly be able to resist making a joke at Infinity War's expense then? Of course, Infinity War will almost certainly exceed Deadpool 2's total box office take by, say, over $1 billion, so the Russos may be the ones having the last laugh.
