Petition Drafted for Deadpool as SNL HostFebruary 18th, 2016
No matter the cast, Saturday Night Live does a great job of getting hosts that are in the current spotlight – although they usually are not comic book characters. Right now everyone loves Deadpool thanks to his recent movie. And so a new petition has surfaced, urging NBC to get Deadpool to host the show. As of this writing the petition has more than 43,000 signatures. You can bet that this number will keep climbing as more people become aware of it.
To be clear, the petition is asking for Deadpool to host the show, not Ryan Reynolds, meaning that he would do the entire show in-costume and in-character. That would be pretty weird and pretty awesome too. I really hope this happens, though they’d probably have to bleep out half the show.
