Deadpool may be obnoxious, foul-mouthed, violent and difficult to look at without his mask, but he’s also willing to acknowledge when he’s been bested.
After Wonder Woman‘s domestic grossed reached $368 million over the weekend, inching past Deadpool‘s impressive $363 million U.S. total, star Ryan Reynolds congratulated the accomplishment, as only the Merc With a Mouth can.
“The Merc May Be Filthier, but Her B.O. is Stronger,” Reynolds wrote in the text accompanying the Instagram photo.
It’s important to note that Deadpool reached that figure after 126 days in North American theaters, while Wonder Woman has been in nationwide release for 38 days. It seems likely the Patty Jenkins film will finish its domestic theatrical run with somewhere north of $400 million,
Wonder Woman is already the top-grossing installment of the DC Extended Universe, domestically, passing 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice about two weeks ago. With a global haul of $745.6 million, however, it seems unlikely it will unseat Batman v Superman ($873.3 million) from it’s throne atop the DCEU’s worldwide chart.
The Warner Bros. franchise has earned more than $3 billion worldwide.
In theaters now, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
The DC Extended Universe continues Nov. 7 with the release of Justice League, starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta and J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
