(LOS ANGELES) -- Ryan Reynolds and his alter-ego, Deadpool, gave a superheroic attaboy to Marvel Studios for the record-breaking debut of The Avengers: Infinity War.
With a picture showing Deadpool's supposed rejection letter from The Avengers -- printed on Stark Industries letterhead, no less -- Reynolds noted, "From a guy who never knows when to quit, I’m glad you guys never did. Congrats #Avengers."
Oh, and the letter regarding 'Pool's eagerness to join Earth's Mightiest Heroes? It reads, "No. Absolutely not. Go bother Professor X," the latter, the leader of the X-Men group.
The message adds, for good measure, another. "No."
Marvel Studios is owned by ABC News parent company Disney.
