You may have noticed that superhero movies are making a lot of money at the moment.

Whether it is Marvel's Avengers or DC's Batman and Superman, the comic book adaptations are packing out cinema screens all year round.

One of this year's biggest successes is DC's Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the empowering Amazonian Princess.

It has only been out for just over a month and has already clocked a staggering $368 million at the box office.

You can imagine the bigwigs making the Marvel movies over at Disney and Fox would be pretty startled by this (as DC movies have typically been panned critically) but not Ryan Reynolds, who showed some love to Wonder Woman through the guise of his character Deadpool.

The actor, who plays the fourth-wall breaking, witty mercenary, sent out this heartwarming message after Wonder Woman surpassed his movie's 2016 box office takings, which peaked at $360 million.

However, Reynolds couldn't resist poking a little fun.

The official Deadpool Movie Twitter account also shared the image and fans of both characters couldn't hide their glee.
