Now the actor -- who said he thought the towers may have gone down after a "controlled explosion" -- is starring in a film about the tragedy that took thousands of lives. On Tuesday, Atlas Distribution Co. announced it will release "9/11" in theaters on Sept. 8.

The official Twitter account for "Deadpool" on Monday evening shared a photo featuring the titular star's hands forming a heart around a necklace bearing Wonder Woman's logo — a throwback to the irreverent mercenary's original movie poster.
