Deadpool 2 hits theaters in a little more than a week, and the Merc With a Mouth is very concerned about spoilers. Either that, or he just couldn’t resist an opportunity to make fun of that silly letter “Thanos” wrote asking fans not to spoil the ending of Avengers: Infinity War.
On Wednesday morning, star Ryan Reynolds tweeted out an image of a letter from Wade Wilson asking fans not to spoil the events of Deadpool 2. It is jam-packed with jokes and, presumably, a big ol’ fake spoiler about the Merc’s untimely demise. Here’s the full text of the letter:
To the greatest fans in the whole universe.
We have embarked on the Deadpool 2: This Is Kind of Your Guys’ Fault World Tour. Almost everyone involved in the film has given Maximum Effort the past two years, maintaining the highest level of super secrets, like how David Blaine catches bullets in his mouth. And the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices in Colonel Sanders’ delicious moustache.
Only a handful of people know the film’s true plot. One of them is not Ryan Reynolds. We’re asking that when you see Deadpool 2, you don’t say a fucking word about the fun shit in the movie. Cause it’d be super lame to spoil the fact that Deadpool dies in this one. Kidding. Not kidding. Kidding?
In the picture, Deadpool has his gloved hand on the letter along, though it’s joined by a baby hand, cat paw, and dog paw.
The entire letter is a spoof of a similar letter the Russo Brothers shared ahead of the Infinity War premiere bearing the hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. The Deadpool franchise is no stranger to firing shots at the superhero competition. One of the earlier trailers made fun of Justice League’s CGI mustache fiasco, and Deadpool 2 includes a joke about how Josh Brolin plays Thanos and Cable.
Presumably, Deadpool 2 won’t be as plot-driven as Infinity War, being a comedy, so you’ll probably still enjoy it just fine if you accidentally stumble across any spoilers. Just know that Deadpool would appreciate it if you didn’t spill the beans yourself.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18.
