In a move worthy of the Merc with the Mouth himself, one fan took it upon themselves to become the owner of the domain names for AvengersEndgame.com and AvengersEndgameMovie.com and redirected both links to Deadpool or Ryan Reynolds-related advertisements and videos. Or at least he did for one of them, because if you go to either one of those URLs right now, you’re redirected to a music video of various scenes from films Ryan Reynolds has starred in, all set to the tune of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.” Observe.
In hindsight, that probably would’ve been genius marketing for the first Deadpool film. But back to the plot, this fan revealed that he would turn over the websites in exchange for something that anyone can easily provide: two tickets to Avengers: Endgame– one for himself an one for the Missus. And then Ryan Reynolds entered the story by sending the fan a set of Aviation headphones, as well as a note that read “This isn’t to say I’m proud of what you did. Just that I happen to love you.” Worthy of Deadpool certainly.
Here, have a look at the fan sharing the gift that he received when he shared it on his Twitter page:

Much like the URL, the fan insisted that he would trade the package for two tickets to Avengers: Endgame. It all comes back to tickets to the follow-up to Infinity War. It remains to be seen if the House of Mouse would acquiesce to this proposal or if they would come up with a different URL for Avengers: Endgame. But one thing’s for sure, it’s definitely a troll move that lines up with what the Merc with the Mouth would do.
What do you think of this maneuver? Had you noticed this beforehand when searching for any additional information on Avengers: Endgame? And do you think the fan will succeed in getting two tickets to the premiere of Avengers: Endgame? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters on April 26, 2019.
Here’s What We Learned From The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios unveiled the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and the preview offered fans more insight into the aftermath of Thanos' decimation.
After Avengers: Infinity War concluded with Thanos using the power of the Infinity Stones to erase half of the population in the universe from existence, fans spent the rest of the year speculating on how our heroes could reverse the Mad Titan's decimation and what would have to be sacrificed as a result. Now, the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame offers fans their first look at how the surviving heroes have coped with the loss of their loved ones and may provide insight into how they plan to defeat Thanos.

Tony Stark Is Adrift In Space After His Showdown With Thanos
Following the showdown on Titan, Tony Stark and Nebula were left alone after Thanos eradicated the rest of the heroes who were present. While some assumed that the genius billionaire would find a way to return to Earth, it appears Tony is adrift in space on a vessel with limited supplies and oxygen.
Nebula Is With Tony
While Tony Stark may be lost in space with no chance of being rescued, it appears he will be accompanied by Nebula, the only other survivor of the showdown on Titan. How the two characters are getting along in what could be their final days remains unknown, though Nebula appears to be faring better than her new companion.
Scott Lang Escaped The Quantum Realm
During the first post-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Scott Lang found himself trapped inside the Quantum Realm after his friends were erased by the Thanos snap and some speculated that the Avengers would have to rescue him. However, it appears Scott Lang managed to escape the realm on his own and brought the van containing the way to the alternate dimension with him.
Possible Time Jump
During the final moments of the new trailer, Captain America and Black Widow view a video of Scott Lang asking to be let inside Avengers headquarters. Captain America wonders if the message is old, meaning that some time may have passed since Thanos' decimation and Scott's escape from the Quantum Realm.
Hawkeye Is Definitely Ronin
After months of speculation, the Avengers: Endgame trailer essentially confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns. Furthermore, Captain America line about losing family being said over footage of Clint Barton's appearance suggests that the archer's family perished in the decimation and their deaths prompted him to take on a new identity.
They Know Spider-Man Is MissingDuring the trailer, Bruce Banner can be seen assessing a list of victims of Thanos' decimation and it appears the team knows Spider-Man is among the missing. This may come as a surprise to some considering Spider-Man was with Tony Stark during the events of Infinity War.
Captain America's Winter Soldier Suit is Back
After returning in Avengers: Infinity War with a full beard and disheveled costume, Captain America will return to a more familiar look that includes the suit from The Winter Soldier.
Thanos Is Still Wearing The Burned Gauntlet
After Thanos acquired all six Infinity Stones and used them to accomplish his mission, the gauntlet he used to harness their power was severely damaged. However, it appears the Mad Titan continues to wear the worn gauntlet, perhaps in an effort to ensure no one else can wield the power of the stones and undo his actions.
The Avengers Have A Plan
Though all may seem hopeless, our heroes aren't heading into their next showdown with Thanos without a plan. Hopefully, it will work, because Steve Rogers certainly seems concerned about what they will do if the Avengers fail for a second time.
