With more than 30 percent of the total votes, Ryan Reynolds’ recently announced “Deadpool” spin-off movie was the favorite among a fairly large number of voters. Splash Page readers came out in force to support the ol’ Merc With A Mouth, and it sounds like they’re not letting the character’s much-debated debut in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” dampen any of their enthusiasm for the character.
“I voted for Deadpool because he is Deadpool duh!” wrote Splash Page reader “feelgooddrag.”
However, the difference between the top vote-getter and the second-place finisher was closer than one might expect, with the sequel to “Wolverine” sinking its claws into 28 percent of the vote. Snikt!
It was a big jump down to the other two films, though, with each tallying a nearly identical number of votes. Josh Schwartz’ “X-Men: First Class” came in third with 21 percent of the vote, while David Goyer’s “X-Men Origins: Magneto” received slightly fewer votes and took home 20 percent of the total.
“Deadpool, shemedpool. I want a Teen-Cyclops movie!” wrote “Toast-Jammer” of where his vote was headed.
Still, some readers felt there should’ve been another option in the poll — specifically, a film devoted to everyone’s favorite kinetically-charged Cajun.
“Gambit. That’s what I wanna see,” wrote reader “LucasScott.”
