The actor and director added his beloved cross-dressing character Madea's grey wig and carried a handbag as he pretended he was the movie matriarch behind the Deadpool mask in the online video, trying to hide from Tyler Perry, who earlier this week revealed he was killing off the grandmother following one more film.
"MA-DEA-D Pool!! Hiding from Tyler Perry. #NOBODYSFOOL EVERYWHERE THIS FRIDAY," Tyler captioned the video he posted on his Twitter account on Wednesday, October 31.
It caught the real Deadpool's attention and Reynolds responded: "Um... @tylerperry, if you could film six more minutes of this, we'd have Deadpool 3. Or @nobodysfool part 2."
Thrilled to get feedback from the actor, Tyler returned to social media early on Thursday and wrote: "You have no idea what a huge Deadpool fan I am!! You're amazing my friend. All the best to you and your family."

Tyler isn't the only star who has heaped praise on Reynolds in recent weeks - the actor's "Life (2017)" co-star Jake Gyllenhaal wrote a touching Variety essay in honour of the publication's New Power of New York list last month.
"What we all want for our friends in this business is for the world to see what we see, and as actors, that only happens in a perfect storm of timing and the full luck," Jake wrote. "After years of waiting and struggling to fit his unfortunate, pear-shaped physique into the skinny jeans of a conventional romantic lead, Ryan made his own luck with Deadpool."
He added: "For all of the effortlessness that Ryan projects, the man works tirelessly. He writes all night so he can be present for his kids and wife all day... So often - too often - the wildly talented people of our world funnel the lion's share of their energy into their work, but as good a writer and comedian as Ryan is, he is a better friend and father and husband. And that, for me, is the true mark of power."
