Fans those who have watched the recent Deadpool 2 trailer might have noticed the Ryan Reynolds’ X-Men character holding up a cross to mention the team’s name: X-Force. It looks the same as Gal Gadot’s classic Wonder Woman pose that she uses to bring out the powers of her wrist armor.
Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot was quick enough to call out Ryan Reynolds on social media alleging that the Merc with a Mouth stole her pose. She posted a picture of Deadpool doing the pose with a caption that read, “Dude stole my look!!” along with three emojis and Reynolds’ Twitter account tagged.
Reynolds replied back in true Deadpool style. “Imitation is the sincerest form of larceny,” he tweeted.
Some Deadpool fans came in rescue of their star by pointing out that the pose is also a signature of the Black Panther and Wolverine from the X-Men. Another user posted a picture of Wonder Woman, Deadpool, Black Panther and Wolverine doing the same pose. The user asked the superheroes to come together, do the move, and become the real X-Force. You can check out the tweets below.
Notably, fans are looking forward to the sequels of Wonder Woman and Deadpool as both the film did quite well at the box office. Wonder Woman earned a total of $821.9 million at the box office, while Deadpool walked away with $783.1 million at the end of its run in theaters.
