Deadpool pens spoiler letter in parody of Avengers: Infinity War

Deadpool is like the physical embodiment of when your sibling starts repeating everything you say and when you tell them to stop copying you, they respond in a mocking voice "stop copying me." Case in point: The star of the upcoming Deadpool 2 has released a letter asking fans to refrain from spilling secrets about the movie — pretty much a direct parody of the plea the Russo Brothers wrote for Avengers: Infinity War

"To the greatest fans in the whole universe," reads the letter.

"We have embarked on the 'Deadpool 2: This is Kind of Your Guys' Fault' Tour. Almost everyone in the film has given Maximum Effort the past two years, maintaining the highest level of super secrets like how David Blaine catches bullets in his mouth. And the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices in Colonel Sanders' delicious moustache.

Only a handful of people know the film's true plot. One of them is not Ryan Reynolds. We're asking that when you see Deadpool 2, you don't say a f*cking word about the fun sh** in the movie. Cause it'd be super lame to spoil the fact that Deadpool dies in this one. Kidding. Not kidding. Kidding?

Godspeed."

The letter is signed by "X," a reference to X-Force, and is followed by the extra long hashtag of #WadeWilsonDemandsYourSisterSorryStupidAutoCorrectSilence, which is a jab at #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. 

This isn't the first time in recent weeks that the Deadpool marketing department has poked fun at the Avengers. Following the critical and box office success of Infinity War, Reynolds tweeted out a rejection letter from the group. Aside from being a Marvel property, Deadpool 2 will also feature the man who plays Thanos, Josh Brolin, as the time-traveling mutant known as Cable

The sequel arrives in theaters May 18.
