Deadpool Just Launched an Oscar Campaign in the Best, Most Deadpool Way Possible

Can we just give the bad-mouthed merc the big shiny golden trophy he so damn well deserves, and at the very least for his string of stellar performances amidst some pleasantly raunchy marketing campaigns. Speaking of which, let's take a quick trip down memory lane...

The huge success of Deadpool, both financially and critically, came only as a result of years of preparation for Ryan Reynolds. He had been impatiently waiting and preparing since the awful X-Men: Origins to return to the role of Wade Wilson.

So it should come as no surprise that after all that, Reynolds is in no hurry to give up the role.

"I would love to play Deadpool for as long as they would let me play Deadpool," he told Variety. "We have outlines and stories for a number of different films."

Since it was announced that the newest outing for Wolverine Logan would be following in suit of Deadpool and going into R rated territory, Reynolds has been keen on the idea of doing a movie staring both the characters. Hugh Jackman, who has announced that Logan will be his last movie as Wolverine (we'll believe it when we see it), is far more uncertain.

"I'm hesitating," said Jackman, "because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit. But the timing may 
be wrong."

We're slightly more skeptical than Reynolds is regarding how well that movie would work. Wolvierine relies on a very serious atmosphere to effectively make his brooding personality work on screen. A movie in the fourth wall breaking, witty, sardonic tone of Deadpool probably just wouldn't work. It takes more than mashing two R rated superhero movies together to make a good film.

We'd definitely need to see how Logan plays out before any of it would sound like a remotely good idea.



But most of our doubt probably comes from how hard it is to forget the last time these two characters were on screen together...

Would expect nothing less from Reynolds. Here's the 'award letter'!



And can we take it back to that phenomenal 'interview' he staged for GQ as Man of the Year recently as well?



Whatta guy. We love you, Ryan, and sincerely wish you the best on your journey to bring home Deadpool's righteous and well-deserved Oscar.

A week ago we learned that the original director for Deadpool, Tim Miller was abandoning ship, and now we've received confirmed reports that Miller is gearing up to direct the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.



The gameplan at this point is to make a hybrid CG-animated/live-action family film. Patrick Casey and Josh Miller, who were responsible for creating Golan the Insatiable, are penning the script.

Deadline confirms that Tim Miller (directed Deadpool and was going to direct the sequel) has split due to creative differences with Ryan Reynolds. Miller apparently never signed on for the second film, and the parting of ways was reported as being done under amicable circumstances.



Still though, this comes as a bit of a bummer for the fans out there that enjoyed Miller's work on Deadpool. Who will replace him? Who should?
