The Avengers Campus at Disneyland Paris is finally opening up to the world. There’s also a sneaky Wade Wilson/Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) Easter Egg that every Marvel fan will eat up.

In the video above, Kirsten Acuna shows that Marvel has categorized Deadpool in the Do Not Contact subcategory of its databases and listed Wade Wilson as Dead Pool. In his file, the dates are “Do Not Affiliate” and “No Thanks.”
