Ryan Reynolds has roped in Deadpool to toast the success of Avengers: Infinity War after the superhero epic secured a record-breaking opening weekend.
The Marvel film secured the biggest worldwide opening of all time after debuting to $630 million (£458 million) — nearly $100 million more than the previous record of $541.9 million (£393 million) which was set by The Fate of the Furious in 2017.
But it seems that Deadpool won’t be a part of the team any time soon, after Reynolds shared the masked mercenary’s rejection letter from Avengers boss Tony Stark.
“Re: Joining the Avengers. No. Absolutely not. Go bother Prof X. No”, the fictional letter reads, dated from 2012.
Captioning the letter, Reynolds wrote: “From a guy who never knows when to quit, I’m glad you guys never did. Congrats”.

Although Deadpool won’t be joining the Avengers, he’s got his very own sequel hitting cinemas next month.
The film will see the Merc with the mouth being pitted against Cable, played by Josh Brolin.
Specific plot details are yet to be revealed, but previous Marvel storylines have seen Thanos being infected by a virus that can only be cured by travelling in the future.
He takes on telekinetic and super strength abilities, travelling back to the past in order to prevent ills that would otherwise plague the future.
