Well, here’s a novel idea. Some bright spark on the Internet has set up a petition asking to have Deadpool host an episode of Saturday Night Live. Their pitch: have Ryan Reynolds appear on the venerated American variety program in-character as Deadpool, breaking the fourth wall, breakdancing alongside the musical guest, and generally bringing a Deadpoolean vibe to the show.
I’m not going to lie, that actually sounds pretty golly gosh darn fun.
Of course, the Merc With a Mouth would have to be, uh, toned down somewhat for network television, meaning no F-bombs, no lewd humor, and no decapitating Bobby Moynihan. No matter how much he may deserve it.
If this seems like an idea you can get behind, go sign the petition. Will it happen? Well, this is the Internet. Who can say? I can say. It probably won’t happen. Or will it? No.
