Recently, CGI test footage for a Deadpool movie set the internet on fire. We speculated that the test reel – produced by director Tim Miller and his company Blur Studio – was leaked to gauge interest in the project. Now it's clear EVERYONE is interested, Miller has some advice on what we can do to bring the Deadpool movie to life.
"I would say—'less anger more love,'" Miller said in an interview with Yahoo! Movies. "Fans saying how much they love Wade Wilson will win hearts and minds."
Meanwhile, Deadpool screenwriter Rhett Reese has gone about collecting signatures on Twitter on the movie's behalf:
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, to recap, the revised recipe for seeing a Deadpool movie brought to life is as follows:
- Down with anger toward Fox.
- Up with love toward Deadpool.
- Retweet like crazy.
Got it. Though, it does present the problem of figuring out how to express affection for a character as irreverent as Deadpool without directing at least some ire Fox's way. Might we suggest a mouthy letter-writing campaign?
