Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot playfully called out Deadpool 2’s Ryan Reynolds for stealing her look in the latest Deadpool 2 trailer.

Ryan Reynolds quickly responded.
Imitation is the sincerest form of larceny. https://t.co/vJQcXxbfs9

If you remember from the trailer, Deadpool announces his new team as X-Force, but he is quickly questioned by Domino, “Isn’t that a little derivative?” Deadpool responds, “You’re absolutely right.”
Fans were quick to chime in on just how derivative the X symbol across the chest is.
The symbol has become quite popular for multiple superheroes. Wolverine famously uses it with his claws.

We were also recently treated to the symbol in Black Panther as a sign of greeting in Wakanda.

While Black Panther and Wolverine were popular examples of the arms across the chest, some were quick to point out a 90s villain from an Indian flick also makes the symbol.

Others pointed out Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman made the symbol in the classic 1970s Wonder Woman television show.
Technically speaking she rocked it first. pic.twitter.com/Gdw8Oa9of7
