With Avengers: Infinity War scoring big at the box office this past weekend, superhero movie colleague Ryan Reynolds from Deadpool has some hearty congratulations for the team - along with a purported crossover nipped in the bud.

Note the date: April 14, 2012. That is a few days after the original Avengers film's world premiere. At the time, Reynolds was still reeling from the disappointment of Green Lantern and working with 20th Century Fox on the Deadpool test footage that, years later, would push 20th Century Fox to greenlight the film.

Back to the point... in Marvel Comics, Deadpool did at one point become a member of the Avengers.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now; Deadpool 2 opens May 18.
