David Beckham and Deadpool Hug It Out in New Trailer

The Marvel antihero apologized to the soccer star for a joke he made in his first film.

They may not break bones like sticks and stones but words, especially insulting ones that are delivered in incredibly popular Marvel films, can hurt.

Despite fame, fortune and a namesake movie, David Beckham is not immune to feeling that pain, which is why Ryan Reynolds, clad in full Deadpool regalia, stopped by to apologize to him in a new video. 

His reason for an apology? In Deadpool, Reynolds said Beckham’s high-pitched speaking voice sounds as if he “mouth-sexed a can of helium.”

To help clear the air before Deadpool 2 comes out next week, Reynolds thought it’d be prudent to say sorry to Beckham but, despite offering everything from cookies to a mariachi band, his apology fell on deaf ears.

At least that was the case until Reynolds popped out a pair of World Cup tickets and said: “I can’t wait to not watch Italy play the Netherlands.” After that, Beckham was willing to hug it out.

Check out the video before Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18.
