Ryan Reynolds and Robert Downey Jr. are at it again. The two recently took to social media to start their fantasy football feud, as the pair are set to face off against each other – for charity, of course.
The entire thing started when Downey uploaded a video of himself on his social media. In the video, the “Iron Man” actor decided to use a more friendly approach when talking to his fellow Marvel co-star. He started the video by talking about his charity, but then continue on in a more cheeky manner when he started to talk about the “Deadpool” star.
In the video the 54-year-old said, “Robert Downey Jr. here, part of the AGBO Superhero Fantasy Football League. I’m playing for Sacred Hearts, which is a rehabilitation from substance issues. Crazy about that.”
He then added, “We’re playing Ryan Reynolds this week. And I’m not a smack talker. I’m not gonna say ‘Ryan eat my pigskin’ or any of that stuff. Honestly, I’m praying for ya (awkward laugh). I wish you the best of luck. We’ll see ya on the field my brother. We’re all in this together…”
The “Sherlock” actor then ended the message with a change of demeanour and hissed out the words, “Eat eat” towards the Canadian. Being the sportsman that he is, Reynolds decided to respond with a video of his own.
The Vancouver native posted the response video, with him silently eating cookies with the face of the Marvel icon printed on them. This hilarious response prompted the upcoming “Dolittle” actor to comment in the Instagram post with the word, “#touche’”.
Reynolds joined the competition in September. He is in the good company of other Marvel actors – Tom Holland, Karen Gillan, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Paul Rudd, Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth – who all are representing a different charity organisation. The 43-year-old star is representing Sick Kids Foundation.
He has this to say about the charity at the start of the event, “It’s for an incredible charity, the one I’m playing for is the Sick Kids Foundation of Canada. Just an amazing place. They do so much for kids across Canada, but not only that, they do so much for kids all across the world. Amazing people.”
