Deadpool Really Wants an Oscar, Has Some Things for You to “Considerbate”

Shame on you if you think the Deadpool PR team’s resting on their laurels after a pretty darn successful PR blitz. With the Oscars coming up, the brilliant (possibly deranged-in-the-best-way) minds behind the hilarity are campaigning for an Academy Award in the most absurd way possible: with a “for your considerbation” poster.

Feast your eyes on Deadpool star Ryan Reynold’s tweet above. Honestly, with qualifications like those, I think I might be able to give the merc with a mouth a run for his money when it comes to getting an Oscar. At least, I would if I were white, cis, and male. As it stands, I’d be lucky to be able to go to the bathroom without copping a stare. Then again, I guess the same would go for Deadpool. Can you imagine walking into a bathroom and having to peel off that suit? All the sweat and things just kinda… just kinda pooling, there…

… I’m sorry, what were we talking about?
