Ryan Reynolds has congratulated The Avengers – and therefore Marvel Studios – on their HUGE box office success with a special tweet.

The tweet said:

“From a guy who never knows when to quit, I’m glad you guys never did. Congrats #Avengers”

The tweet was accompanied by a picture of a rejection letter that Deadpool supposedly received from Tony Stark.

The letter, dated April 14th 2012, reads:

“Re: Joining the Avengers


Absolutely not.

Go Bother Prof. X



Tony Stark”

Hopefully Deadpool – and by extension, Ryan Reynolds – didn’t take this rejection too badly.

Deadpool 2 arrives in cinemas in three weeks’ time.
