Ryan Reynolds has often suited up in red and black latex to save the world. However, rumors are making rounds that he recently donned the suit of Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth to evade a legendary roast session with some kids. Despite Deadpool's iconic anti-heroic heroism, Reynolds recently hinted at his true motivations for wearing the notorious suit, not so akin to other Marvel heroes lurking under the stairs.

Reynolds’ drive to create Deadpool stems from his fundamental nature of generosity. However, whether it was well-received by those he tends to give to remains a question.

About two weeks ago, Ryan Reynolds sat down with John Krasinski for an interview on ScreenCrush, hosted by Lyla and Luna as part of their KID GLOVES celebrity interview series. During the conversation, Krasinski shared the inspiration behind his latest movie, IF, attributing it to his children and their vibrant imagination. Lyla and Luna then playfully directed the question to Reynolds, asking him what he had done for his kids. In his characteristic wit, Reynolds replied, "I made Deadpool 1, 2, and 3 for my kids."

While Krasinski described IF as his way of nurturing his children's imaginative world, Lyla and Luna took a humorous turn, referencing Reynolds' series Welcome to Wrexham. They jokingly questioned if it was his unique way of doing something meaningful for his kids by creating a soccer series they could appreciate. Because their humor seemed unoriginal, Reynolds surprised everyone by attributing the pinnacle of his success to his children, delivering an unexpected response.

On Thursday, Ryan Reynolds revealed a playful advertisement teasing the new popcorn bucket theme for the priority-tagged Deadpool & Wolverine. The bucket, shaped like a Wolverine helmet with an open mouth designed for dispensing popcorn, was introduced following Kevin Feige’s promise of a “crude and design” for the bucket. Reynolds captioned the unveiling of the bucket, saying, “Years from now they will look back at 2024 as when the War of the Popcorn Buckets began.”

This move follows the viral success of the AMC popcorn bucket inspired by Dune: Part Two, which gained popularity after a Saturday Night Live skit. While it remains uncertain which theaters will offer these buckets, they are reportedly priced between $25 and $30. Thus, the meticulously designed popcorn bucket supports Reynolds’ assertion that he made Deadpool not just for adult audiences, but kids as well, including his.
