Since its release last weekend, fans and critics alike have been singing the praises of the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. The film even gained the praises of the most straight-laced hero in the entire Marvel Universe, Captain America. Well, at least from Chris Evans, the actor that plays him.

That was pretty awesome, seeing the two stars of the two biggest Marvel movies in 2016 forming a strong bond. However, there was one person who didn’t take kindly to this camaraderie: Robert Downey, Jr.
.@VancityReynolds Et tu, D-pool? Gimme a shout when Rogers boots you out for "cussing"!

I can’t tell if Evans is embracing his vulgar side or backtracking, but what is for certain is that lines have been drawn a few months early. No surprise that it’s Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool in the middle of it all.
Deadpool is in theaters now and Captain America: Civil War opens May 6.
So what do you think? Did Reynolds choose the right side> How do you think Deadpool would react to Civil War? Who would he annoy the most? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
