Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds Joke About Swapping Superhero Roles After Birthday ‘Accident’

Birthday boy Hemsworth jokes that his son’s sneak attack gave him burns worthy of Wade Wilson

Chris Hemsworth starring as Deadpool? Ryan Reynolds stepping in as Thor? The two superhero stars exchanged playful words Sunday, joking that recent “sneak attacks” have left them both with scars that would make them perfect for each other’s roles.

Hemsworth, who turned 35 on Saturday, posted a picture of him with his birthday cake, writing that shortly after the photo was taken, “my son viciously attacked me from behind (due to his ninja training) and slammed my face into the flaming candles. I’ll now be playing Deadpool if [Reynolds] pulls the pin.”

Reynolds’ response? “Weird. My daughter JUST stabbed me in the right eye. (She’s not a ninja, but she IS a bit of a d*ck) Point is, We can finally trade roles…”

Hemsworth will return for his seventh — and final? — go-around as Thor in “Avengers 4” next year.
