The Merc With The Mouth Responds To ‘SNL’ Petition


A few weeks ago, a fan of Tim Miller’s Deadpool started a petition to have Ryan Reynolds host Saturday Night Live as the Merc with the Mouth. The petition has already gathered more than 71,000 signatures and that number continues to grow day by day, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Reynolds is well aware of its existence.

The actor recently tweeted out a video, revealing that Deadpool came close to hosting an episode back in the 90s, but he did that in the most hilarious way: by making fun of Kanye West’s recent rant that’s been making the rounds. Check out his awesome response right below.


“Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional 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, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”

Deadpool is now playing in theaters.
