As if we weren’t already jealous that we didn’t go to San Diego Comic-Con! Ryan Reynolds, Channing Tatum and so many other Marvel heroes got together for a selfie with Stan Lee, and the result was nothing short of epic!
San Diego Comic-Con really brings everyone together! Ryan Reynolds, 38, Channing Tatum, 35 and Miles Teller, 28, aren’t even from the same Marvel franchises, but by the grace of Comic-Con (and a certain person named Stan Lee), they joined forces for a totally iconic selfie. Can you imagine being in a Deadpool-Gambit sandwich? Check out the epic photo!
Comic-Con is truly the only place where you’d see heroes from different walks of the Marvel universe oh so casually hanging out together. At the Marvel conference in Hall H, that place where dreams come true, the actors from the X-Men franchise and the new Fantastic Four were brought up onstage to take an incredible picture together. Some were originally a little reluctant (jokingly!) and had to be pushed to the front, but the end result was totally fantastic.
The biggest problem the group had was finding someone suitable to take the photo! The man to do the job? Marvel founding father Stan Lee, of course! He came to the stage to roaring applause and let his superheroes have it. “I’m going to take this picture and get it over with,” Stan said. “Who’s got a camera, who’s got a camera?”
Well, it turns out Channing did, attached to a selfie stick! It was a huge surprise to the audience when he appeared, and he just jumped right into the photo to join his new Marvel co-stars. He even brought Stan with him! Everyone was clearly thrilled that Channing is going to play X-Men hero Gambit!
