If Ryan Reynolds thought Joe and Anthony Russo wouldn't notice that he poked fun at their anti-spoiler campaign in his own letter to Deadpool 2 fans, he was sorely mistaken. This morning the Avengers: Infinity War directors poked back, using the middle finger of the Infinity Gauntlet.
The filmmakers responded this morning to the Deadpool parody of their #ThanosDemandsYourSilence letter with a photo of the glowing Infinity Gauntlet flipping the bird, accompanied by one word: "Boom ..." Reynolds responded with, "I deserve that."

The Russo brothers released an open letter in early April requesting that "the greatest fans in the world" refrain from spoiling details of Infinity War as the press tour kicked off ahead of the film's worldwide release. Reynolds & Co. upped the ante on Wednesday with a letter to "the greatest fans in the whole universe" that dropped potential spoilers on its way to the unwieldy hashtag #WadeWilsonDemandsYourSisterSorryStupidAutoCorrectSilence. It just rolls off the fingertips.
Infinity War, which opened around the globe on April 27, reached the $1 billion box-office milestone faster than any other film, and seems destined to reach $2 billion before it ends its theatrical run.
In theaters May 18, director David Leitch’s Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular Deadpool, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapičić as Colossus, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Julian Dennison as Russell and Josh Brolin as Cable.
