Of course Deadpool is trying to hijack the Oscars

Deadpool might be out in cinemas and already enjoying a healthy box office return, but that doesn't mean the anti-hero's PR team (opens in new tab) have gone to sleep.

Question is, will it work? Well, no... because Deadpool isn't even nominated.

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller and Gina Carano, Deadpool is playing in UK and US cinemas now.
