Ryan Reynolds now has an ownership stake of the Costa Mesa, California-based Mint Mobile.
This is not an April Fool’s joke — Deadpool himself now owns a U.S.-based carrier.
Newest @_MintMobile customer. Also, owner of the company. To keep things above board, I’ll be paying myself $15 a month. #MintOwner pic.twitter.com/hrzd8t8T2H

The three-year-old Mint Mobile is an American carrier and a subsidiary of Ultra Mobile.
“It’s a bit unconventional which is why I like it,” said Reynolds in a press release. “Celebrities generally invest in high-end products like skincare brands or delicious gin companies. Yet Mint is making wireless way more affordable at a time when the average American is paying 65 dollars a month. I’m excited to champion a more practical approach to the most essential technology.”
Mint Mobile offers an assortment of devices with affordable plans. A current Black Friday promotion offers $15 for 12GB of 4G LTE data for three months.
The British Columbian-born Reynolds was recently in Detective Pikachu and Deadpool 2 and will be in the upcoming movie 6 Underground.
