Disney officially owns Fox, and you just know Deadpool would have something to say about that. Ryan Reynolds posted to Twitter to commemorate Disney’s acquisition of the story as of 12:02 AM on Wednesday morning, sharing a pic of him as Deadpool in a Disney bus.

Disney picked up Deadpool, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four’s film and TV rights in the $71.3 billion deal, as well as the Alien, Avatar, Planet of the Apes, Simpsons, and Family Guy franchises. Also included in the deal were enough of an interest in Hulu to bump Disney’s ownership to 60%, 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight, FX, and National Geographic Channel.
