The INSIDER Summary:
- “Wonder Woman” just passed “Deadpool” in the domestic box office.
- “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds congratulated the DC film on its success.
- He shared a funny photo and caption on Instagram.
Deadpool isn’t the humblest of antiheroes, but he can admit defeat.
Actor Ryan Reynolds took to Instagram to congratulate DC’s “Wonder Woman” and actress Gal Gadot for surpassing Marvel’s “Deadpool” in the domestic box office over the weekend. Since opening, “Wonder Woman” has raked in $368 million to “Deadpool’s” $363 million, though “Deadpool” still leads worldwide.
Reynolds, 40, shared a photo of Deadpool’s hands making a heart over a Wonder Woman necklace and provided a typical Deadpool caption.
“The Merc may be filthier, but her B.O. is stronger. Congrats #WonderWoman #BoxOfficeBoss,” he wrote.
Get it? “B.O.” stands for body odor and box office.
His congratulatory message was also shared on the official “Deadpool” Twitter account.
