“Deadpool” Scribe Rhett Reese Launches Twitter Campaign To Get “Deadpool” Movie Made

The moment that the Deadpool test footage leaked, it instantly went viral. Comic book fans passed it to their friends, their friends past it to their friends, so on and so forth. We haven’t seen much of the character since he appeared unmasked in X-Men: Origins: Wolverine, but we knew that Ryan Reynolds was perfect for the role – at least better suited than he was for the Green Lantern. Having said that, it would be difficult for Fox to invest in a comic book film adaptation where the titular character is constantly mouthing off and has an appetite for violence and chimichangas.

Having said that, those who saw it wanted more than test footage, they wanted an actual movie. Fans have been clamoring for it, even after the test footage was taken down, Blur Studios released a high resolution version of it because of the hugely positive response it was getting on the Internet.

Now Deadpool scribe Rhett Reese wants everyone who wants to see a Deadpool movie to “break the Internet,” by helping him with a Twitter campaign. Hit the jump to see how you can do it. [Read more...]
