Apparently no amount of stardom or cult-like fandom can shield you from the sting of a salty young girl putting you in your place. That’s what Ryan Reynolds found out at the Deadpool 2 panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con on Saturday.
During the Q & A portion, throughout which Reynolds joked around with fans, a 10-year-old girl dressed in a Deadpool sheath and a red and white cap showed her anti-hero that she’d been taking notes from the “merc with the mouth.”
After watching Reynolds play with fan questions, this young sass machine was not about to let it happen to her.
Steeling herself for Reynolds’ sarcasm, the barely tween began her question with a lead up:
My question’s for Ryan but the other cast members can answer as well…
…before Reynolds cut her off with:
Oh, shit. Something’s coming I can see it.
...to which she clapped back with a quick and snarky:
Um … if you’ll let me finish.
and followed her retort with a nervous giggle.

The audience and an obviously stunned panel gasped before bursting into laughter. The good-natured Reynolds, a father of two young sassy girls himself, reacted with a nod and a nervous smile.
And then she asked her question:
If you could be any superhero besides Lady Deadpool, who would you be?
Reynolds replied as if caught off-guard:
Did you say besides Lady Deadpool?
…and then added:
God, I love you.
“God, I love you.” —Ryan Reynolds to a fan!!!

After that, no one much cared about Reynolds’ answer to her question… except this guy:
Can we talk about how he said he wanted to be the Wally west flash. pic.twitter.com/hvK2dyZUWm

It didn’t take long for the young girl’s family to take credit for her sass on Twitter:

One look at the 10-year-old Sky on her mom’s Twitter account and you’ll see that while Sky may be a bit on the younger side for Deadpool fans, she appears to be a true “Stan” of the franchise. That, and the apple doesn’t appear to fall far from the tree:
