Ryan Reynolds Sent A Gift To The Guy Who Redirected The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ URL To Deadpool

Earlier this month, the first trailer for the fourth Avengers movie finally revealed the bleak title, Avengers: Endgame. Some people quickly learned, however, that the websites they might assume would provide promo materials for the movie — AvengersEndgame.com and AvengersEndgameMovie.com — were re-directing visitors to 20th Century Fox’s website for the Deadpool movies, which is currently promoting Once Upon A Deadpool.

Those sites now re-direct to a message from Twitter user @AGuyInChair, who wants to give the two web domains to Marvel in exchange for tickets to the Avengers: Endgame premiere in Los Angeles. He bought both domains on the day Avengers: Infinity War opened, and he explained to The Wrap, “I really am just a dude, who played a hunch, mainly because my wife wants to meet Thor.”

It’s the kind of prank Deadpool himself might approve of, and it now has the approval of Deadpool‘s titular Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds. @AGuyInChair posted a picture of a gift he received from Reynolds on Friday:

And if there’s any doubt about whether or not this really came from Ryan Reynolds, the actor himself replied, clarifying, “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.”
