Fans of Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth were given a treat last week when some concept footage for the long-rumoured solo movie for Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool arrived online, which had been produced by Tim Miller and his VFX company Blur Studio back when Fox was first giving consideration to the X-Men Origins: Wolverine spin-off.
As we all know, the footage was infinitely better than the utterly forgettable incarnation of Deadpool we got in X-Men Origins, and now screenwriter Rhet Reese – who penned the script for the movie back in 2010 with his writing partner Paul Wernick – is asking for your help to finally bring Deadpool to the screen, with Reese posting the following to Twitter in an effort to lobby Fox into giving the film the green light:
Team Pool needs your official ‘vote’ of support. Let’s break the internet. RETWEET if you would buy a ticket to the DEADPOOL MOVIE.

So, if you want to do your bit, be sure to retweet the above, and hopefully help to convince Fox to give the go ahead to Deadpool…
