Over the years, Ryan Reynolds has had his fans cracking up time and time again. Although sometimes it has been an on-screen performance, other times it has been social media posts for his wife, Blake Lively, his friends, and even his football team, Wrexham. However, with the hype for his upcoming film, Deadpool 3 increasing with every passing day, the actor took to social media to share a surprising nod to Brad Pitt’s brief part in the franchise’s last film.

While the whole thing came as a surprise, Reynolds complimented how the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star performed his role as the Vanisher.

It even ended up being one of the funniest moments in the movie. In it, the 59-year-old played an invisible character who winds up getting added to Deadpool’s band of misfits. While almost the entire team met their ends in gruesome ways after a failed plane jump, that was the moment viewers found out about the actor’s role.

Earlier this year, the world of Hollywood came to a standstill. What started as the SAG-AFTRA strike spiralled into something much bigger and all the glitz and glamour were put on hold. Many films, including Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 were stopped mid-filming. Thankfully, they finally came to an agreement with the studios recently and things seem to be getting back on track.

Now, with the SAG-AFTRA strike officially over, the cinematic universe is gearing up for another installment of Deadpool’s antics. After a slew of delayed release dates, the final one was announced by no other than Ryan Reynolds. It has sent the hype for the film through the roof. However, with everything fans know about the film already, waiting for 8 more months could be next to impossible.
