But the reason why we love Reynolds is that he makes us feel good. And it’s not just that. When he’s doing so, he’s also making us laugh out loud along the way.
3. Kissing For Consolation
Reynolds has proved that he is the king of self-deprecation. When he didn’t get a Golden Globe for his role in Deadpool, this guy did not sulk. No! He consoled himself by kissing another handsome man — Andrew Garfield.
But he’s not just consoling himself. When a girl photoshopped his face on her boyfriend’s face when the latter broke up with her, Reynolds was quick to reply. “We should photoshop me over his yearbook picture next. #DontMessWithGabi”
In his latest social media post, Reynolds decided to address Deadpool’s "defeat" to the glorious Wonder Woman. Much like all his posts, this one was inspired. It’s a caption and a photo that shows the guy is humble but never too far from making another joke.
Reynolds can be consoled by the fact that his film still holds the record for the worldwide gross. Deadpool brought in $783 million. But Gadot shouldn’t feel too bad. Wonder Woman isn’t too far behind with $766 million worldwide.
Now, let’s decipher each word in the caption, shall well? It seems that Quora the defines the term "merc" as referring to the Deadpool superhero who is known for being a “mercenary.” Or, as he calls himself, “merc with a mouth.”
