Ryan Reynolds Congratulates Wonder Woman For Beating Deadpool In Classic Fashion

All aboard the banter bus, we're calling once more at the home of Ryan Reynolds. We know that the guy is pretty savvy when it comes to comments on social media.

After all, you can't spell Twitter without wit - and he knows that better than anyone.

The Deadpool actor, who will be donning the mask again in 2018, responded to the news this weekend that Wonder Woman had officially passed his film at the box office.

Deadpool, part of the Marvel franchise, and one of the most successful of all time, was officially passed by Wonder Woman.

Reynold's film has totalled $363m (£282.6m) so far, but Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the title character, has now raked in $368m (£298.2m) - making it the 34th highest grossing film ever domestically in the US.

Of course, Marvel's The Avengers still stands at the top the chain with over $623m (£484.6m) gross total, with Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Iron Man 3 rounding out the top three.

Now, upon hearing that news, Reynolds could have gone off into a big rant. However, he remained modest and his usual smart-commented self.

Via his Instagram account, Reynolds said: "The Merc May Be Filthier, but her B.O is Stronger. Congrats."

Many were impressed with his humility, with one comment saying: "I love this so much. #respect."

Another added: "Nice to see some fellow super hero love. Thanks Deadpool."

A third said: "Showing greatness by recognising someone else's achievement. That's having class. You go, Ryan."

Ryan's rapidly becoming a favourite across Twitter. He won more people over when helped a teen get over her ex.

Having broken up a couple of days after her prom, one girl was left with some difficult photos of the ex and her together. She, cleverly, superimposed Ryan Reynold's over his face, and put them out over social media.

Reynolds got wind of this and replied: "We should photoshop me over his yearbook picture next."

And that's not forgetting how brilliant his documentation of his baby girl is on Twitter, too. His hilarious take on parenthood is something we could all heed advice from.
