Avengers directors flip off Deadpool with Thanos' gauntlet

Deadpool's parody of the Avengers spoiler warning earned him a flippant Twitter response from the Infinity War directors.

Deadpool isn't the only person in the Marvel universe who gets to be entertainingly crass. Anthony and Joe Russo, the brothers who directed Avengers: Infinity War, extended the middle finger to the Merc with a Mouth, but they had an amusingly good reason.

On Wednesday, Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool/Wade Wilson, dropped a spoiler warning on Twitter asking fans to keep their mouths shut about the plot to Deadpool 2, which comes out in mid-May. 

The warning was an over-the-top parody of one released by the Russo Brothers ahead of Infinity War. The directors signed their note with the hashtag #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. Deadpool signed his with #WadeWilsonDemandsYourSisterSorryStupidAutoCorrectSilence. 

That's what earned Reynolds the Twitter reply featuring Avengers villain Thanos' glowing Infinity Gauntlet flipping the bird along with a single word: "Boom..." 

Reynolds took the gesture as well as possible, responding with "I deserve that."
