“Package from @VancityReynolds just arrived! Wow! This thing is beautiful!!! ... And I will trade it immediately for 2 tickets to the #AvengersEndgame premiere! Any takers?,” the person wrote. The photos attached show merchandise from Aviation Gin, a company that Reynolds owns. “Holy crap! There’s stuff inside too! (These have got to be worth two tickets, right?) They’re from Canada! Or a Canadian at the very least!!” AGuyInChair continued in another tweet.
Reynolds replied to the tweets with, “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.”

Shortly after the release of the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, AGuyInChair had squatted on the domain rights and redirected traffic to an official Deadpool website. While Endgame is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, owned by Disney, Deadpool belongs to 20th Century Fox’s X-Men series, also based on Marvel characters but not owned by them.
Endgame is a sequel to this year’s record breaking Avengers: Infinity War. Reynolds recently starred in a special holiday themed spin-off, Once Upon a Deadpool, which is essentially a recut version of Deadpool 2. Box office proceeds from the film will be donated to charity.
