The hilarious social media banter first starts after the former Wolverine depicter posts a picture of him posing with ‘The Office’ actor’s wife Emily Blunt.
Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to teasing Hugh Jackman on social media, but when John Krasinski joins in the fun, it actually gets more hilarious than it already is. The “Deadpool” actor and the “A Quiet Place” star teamed up to jokingly call their fellow actor out on social media over the weekend.
It all started after Jackman posted a picture of him posing with Krasinski’s wife Emily Blunt at Variety’s “Actors on Actors” event on Saturday, November 17. “Had the pleasure of chatting with the amazing EMILY BLUNT today,” he tweeted along with the picture. While the photo that he posted seemed normal, it was another picture of the pair that caught her husband’s attention.
In response to the tweet, Krasinski posted a picture of “The Front Runner” actor getting a little bit too close to the blonde beauty, awkwardly leaning his face towards her. “Eeeeeeasy Hugh… not sure this is what @Variety meant with #ActorsonActors,” he hilariously captioned the pic. “Don’t make me think I can hurt you.”

Seizing an opportunity to continue his friendly feud with Jackman, Reynolds quickly jumped in to take Krasinski’s side. “This is a call to action. This man must be stopped,” he replied to “The Office” actor’s tweet.
This is a call to action. This man must be stopped.

While Jackman didn’t response to both tweets, he did mention it at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Monday night, November 19. “You gotta stay on your toes, John,” he joked at the event. “That’s all I’m saying.”
The former Wolverine depicter humorously added that Krasinski and Reynolds went to his house after the epic social media banter. “I’m fine to fight John, but he arrived this morning at my front door with Ryan,” he explained. “I’m like, ‘Come on, guys. One at a time. Not together.’ ” He added, “I’m really creating all these feuds. This mister nice guy image is over.”
