Deadpool Wants His Oscar, Or Is It Ryan Reynolds?

The star of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds mocked the Academy Awards yesterday with a tweet that supported a last-minute write-in campaign for the ineligible film.

The Academy Awards are Sunday night, but Reynolds couldn’t hold back any to chance to steal some headlines with a Deadpool quote. Ride the wave as long as you can sir. The film is already the highest grossing X-Men film in the US after two weeks.

About ‘Deadpool’

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most original anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, he hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano, and Brianna Hildebrand.
