Deadpool wants to Make MTV Great Again.

For most, MTV and its various award shows are but a shadow of its former greatness for roughly the past 20 years. Some would say as far back as the days of Michael Jackson and Nirvana dazzling audiences with their mesmerizing performances in the 90s.

Deadpool, is going to change that. Deadpool can “Make MTV Great Again.” How, you ponder curiously? Well, he’s Deadpool. Enough said. He’s so confident in his vast capabilities (no, not cellular regeneration) that he — in the guise of Ryan Reynolds — posted this recently.


I bet it feels huge in this hand.

Honestly, it can’t be that hard to make MTV great again; don’t tell Deadpool that. Then again, supposedly the network has been trying for years, yet clearly coming up short.

Deadpool, which he probably secretly directed himself with the help of Bob, has eight nominations: Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Best Action Performance, Best Comedic Performance, Best Villain, Best Fight and Best Kiss. That’s eight chances for the Merc with the Mouth to steal the show.

See how he fares tonight when the MTV Movie Awards air at 8 pm EDT.
