Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past week and a half (or are, y’know, one of those morons who took underage kids to see a 15-rated movie and had to leave early due to swearing, sex, violence and swearing), the best superhero movie since Guardians of the Galaxy is now in cinemas.
And idiot parenting decisions aside, reception to Ryan Reynolds starring as the Merc with a Mouth is universally positive. And so, logically, someone has started an online petition to have Deadpool host Saturday Night Live. Because why not?
Deadpool fan and one-time SNL viewer Andrew Stege has started this petition in the US at Change.org, saying:
“I have not watched a full episode of SNL in years because I just haven’t been able to stomach an entire episode, but having Deadpool host, star, and be all over the episode would get the DVR set so I can watch it again and again!”
Despite some rather interesting hosing choices over the years (Donald Trump, anyone?), nobody has ever hosted the entire episode in character. Oh come on, let’s face it: if Reynolds rocked up in full Deadpool regalia, rocking twin swords, chimichangas and more guns than the average army corps, you’d watch it. This could only be a good thing.
