Blake Lively Teases Ryan Reynolds on His ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Press Tour: “Boys Gone Wild”

Blake Lively is at it again, playfully teasing her husband Ryan Reynolds during his press tour for the upcoming movie “Deadpool & Wolverine.” The Gossip Girl alum took to her Instagram Story on Saturday to poke fun at Reynolds and his co-star Hugh Jackman, who were seen having a blast with water guns onstage at the 2024 Waterbomb Festival in Seoul, South Korea, just a day prior.

“When he tells you he’s going to work and then you see him on MTV Spring Break,” Lively wrote in her post, which featured a video of Reynolds and Jackman spraying the crowd with water as the audience sprayed them back. The playful banter didn’t stop there. Lively also jokingly suggested a new title for their upcoming movie, directed by Shawn Levy: “Boys Gone Wild: A Deadpool and Wolverine Story.”

The upcoming film, “Deadpool & Wolverine,” set to hit theaters on July 26, sees Wolverine (Jackman) recovering from his injuries when he crosses paths with the loudmouth Deadpool (Reynolds). The two team up to defeat a common enemy, promising fans an action-packed, R-rated superhero adventure.

Earlier this week, Reynolds and Jackman, who have been friends since working together on 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” kicked off their press tour for the film with their first stop in Shanghai, China. Reynolds took to Instagram afterward to praise his fans for their “incredible hospitality and warmth.”

The actor later shared highlights from their tour stop in Seoul, writing, “Promoting a film is supposed to be WORK but Marvel’s paying for us to go on the greatest vacation of our lives. Someone is for sure getting fired over there. Probably [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige.”

Lively and Reynolds, who have been married since 2012 and share four children together, are known for their playful social media exchanges. The couple’s witty banter often makes headlines, and this latest round of teasing is no exception.

Blake Lively, the star of “It Ends with Us,” had some fun on social media, joking about Reynolds’ recent antics with his Deadpool & Wolverine co-star Hugh Jackman after they were seen playing with water guns onstage at the 2024 Waterbomb Festival in Seoul, South Korea, on Friday, July 5.

On her Instagram Stories, Lively reposted a video of Reynolds wielding a yellow water gun and spraying the audience as they sprayed him back. Over the video, she hilariously wrote, “When he tells you he’s going to work and then you see him on MTV Spring Break.” She also posted a GIF next to the video that read, “You are in serious trouble,” and jokingly added that Reynolds and Jackman’s new film should be called “Boys Gone Wild: A Deadpool and Wolverine Story” instead.

The 2024 Waterbomb Festival was the duo’s latest stop on their press tour across Asia to promote their upcoming movie. They previously visited Shanghai on July 3, with Reynolds sharing some photos on Instagram of the trip. The snaps showed the actors with the movie’s director, Shawn Levy, touring the area and visiting a screening. In his caption, Reynolds thanked the fans in Shanghai for hosting them.

“As we make our way to Korea, we want to thank the people of Shanghai for the incredible hospitality and warmth,” he wrote in his caption. “I’ve been lucky to visit China five times — and as of today, the beautiful sights and sounds of Shanghai for a third time. Thank you from the heart of our bottom.”

Jackman, 55, and Reynolds have been close friends ever since they first worked together in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which also marked Reynolds’ first big screen appearance as Deadpool. Reynolds previously spoke to PEOPLE about the secret to their close friendship, saying that he thought the “secret sauce to a long-lasting Hollywood friendship is not too dissimilar to having a partner or a marriage.”

“I am genuinely rooting for you, all the time. I want you to win,” he told Jackman during the interview. “It’s the same way I feel about Blake. As I’m rooting for her, I know she’s rooting for me, and it’s why we’re so connected.”

The playful dynamic between Lively and Reynolds is well-documented. The couple, who got married in 2012, are known for their spot-on social media snark, often aimed at each other. Reynolds has poked fun at his wife for closing her eyes in photos, committing supernatural infidelity, and unfollowing him on Instagram. Lively, for her part, has thrown her husband under the bus for his less-than-stellar motorcycle skills, flexing his muscles while saving a turtle, and wanting pie instead of cake on his birthday.

Their social media exchanges are a testament to their strong relationship and shared sense of humor. Whether it’s Reynolds wishing Billy Ray Cyrus a happy birthday instead of Lively or Lively mistaking Ryan Gosling for her husband, their playful jabs keep fans entertained and showcase their deep bond.

As the press tour for “Deadpool & Wolverine” continues, fans can expect more hilarious moments and behind-the-scenes glimpses from Reynolds and Jackman. And with Lively keeping a close eye on her husband’s antics, there’s no doubt that more playful teasing is on the horizon.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” is set to be a major hit when it arrives in theaters on July 26. With Reynolds and Jackman’s undeniable chemistry and the film’s action-packed storyline, fans are eagerly awaiting its release. And as Lively continues to keep Reynolds on his toes, their playful dynamic remains a highlight for fans and followers alike.
