It's pretty clear by now that if you're a celebrity in need of a good social media reply, you can count on Ryan Reynolds. The 41-year-old actor is known for trolling his wife, Blake Lively, on occasion, and recently traded jokes on Twitter with fellow superhero icon Chris Hemsworth. The result of their conversation? Well, just an idea that could turn the whole Marvel universe upside down.
On Aug. 11, Hemsworth shared a birthday snap to his Instagram and Twitter accounts, posing with wife Elsa Pataky smiling by his side. While the picture looked absolutely perfect, he was quick to dispel any false ideas. "Immediately after this shot was taken my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles," Hemsworth joked in the caption. "I'll now be playing Deadpool if @vancityreynolds pulls the pin."
It didn't take long for Reynolds to chime in with his own witty commentary on Twitter, offering to take on the role of Thor while Hemsworth claimed Deadpool.
Weird. My daughter JUST stabbed me in the right eye. (She’s not a ninja, but she IS a bit of a dick) Point is, We can finally trade roles... (Happy Birthday Bubba!) https://t.co/TsDLuTACaO

This may be all fun and games between the two actors, but can you imagine if they actually traded roles? What would a world with Reynolds's Thor be like? Or Hemsworth's Deadpool? We'll probably never know for sure, but we'd gladly settle for a movie crossover.
