Deadpool crashes Stephen Colbert's opening monologue & slams Ryan Reynolds

He's Deadpool. He can say and do just about anything he wants — even take shots at the loveable Ryan Reynolds!

Ryan Reynolds, aka Deadpool, interrupted Stephen Colbert's monologue on Tuesday to talk about his movie.

 

"Please guys, no one stand up. It's CBS. I know how old your audience is," he began after walking out on stage.

 

Deadpool went on to say that he would love to be his guest but Colbert told him Jamie Foxx was booked. With that Deadpool joked, "I see. Well, he's got boyish charm for days. I, for one, loved his work in Back to the Future." (Clearly mistakenly referencing Michael J. Fox.)

 

Deadpool requested that Ryan Reynolds should never be on the show.

You know, in our own way, we late-night hosts are basically superheroes.

Colbert asked the alter ego to leave, but first, he wanted to read the rest of Colberts monologue.

 

"I should go. I should go ahead and read the rest of your monologue," said Deadpool.

 

Colbert told him, "You know, in our own way, we late-night hosts are basically superheroes.” Reynolds fired back, "Because you're all mostly white men?"

 

Reynolds still wanted to read the monologue and tried a few jokes about Donald Trump. Then Colbert used the powers of Thanos from Avengers to make Reynolds leave.

Deadpool is the captain now, @stephenathome
