Ryan Reynolds sent the Deadpool fan who hijacked the Avengers: Endgame domain name a nice gift. After Infinity War was released back in April, MCU fans started to guess what the name of Avengers 4 was going to be. A few good fan theories started to pop up, and one fan decided to buy all of those domain names based on the theories and hit the jackpot with Avengers: Endgame and used his site as leverage in an effort to try and get premiere tickets from Marvel Studios. He linked the site to redirect unsuspecting fans to the Once Upon a Deadpool trailer instead.
While the sneaky fan has not been able to get Marvel Studios to give him any attention, Ryan Reynolds stepped up to the plate to thank him by sending him a pretty generous gift that also serves as a promotional tool for himself. The gift is Reynolds' own Aviation Gin, and it's the super fancy Aviation Attaché, which comes in a "unique case from Zero Halliburton." The case alone is pretty awesome and it also includes "a pair of black Master & Dynamic MW60 wireless headphones that were inspired by World War 11 aviator headphones." If that wasn't enough, there's also an Aviation Gin & Tonic carry-on cocktail kit.
Ryan Reynolds didn't come right out and thank the fan for promoting Once Upon a Deadpool, but he did send a sarcastic message. The actor said, "This isn't to say I'm proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you." At the time of the Avengers 4 website incident, many were wondering if Reynolds would respond to the clever prank. In true Reynolds fashion, he delivered the goods for the hijacking and free promotion.
While the sneaky fan was more than happy to get the gift from Ryan Reynolds, he couldn't help himself and started to see if he could trade his gift in for Avengers 4 world premiere tickets, which again, nobody responded to. When he was alerted that the gift that Reynolds sent him was worth nearly $1,000, he changed his mind and decided to keep the fancy case with the actor's booze in it. Reynolds recently appeared on Thursday Night Football to promote the gin for the holidays.
Once Upon a Deadpool is currently in theaters until next Monday, December 24th. The PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 came in at number eleven at this weekend's box office, earning over $2 million, which is pretty good for a what is basically a re-release. That also means some good news for the F*ck Cancer foundation, since $1 from every ticket sold goes to them. As for Avengers: Endgame, that hits theaters in April of next year and the sneaky hijacking website fan may or may not be invited to the premiere.
