Deadpool’s alter ego Ryan Reynolds popped by The Tonight Show and revealed his original pitch for Deadpool 2.

The whole movie was to revolve around Deadpool trying to steal the big red chair from The Voice.

Needless to say, Fox executives weren’t entirely jazzed with the idea, but apparently their eyes lit up when they heard the secondary pitch – involving X-Force. Ooh, synergy!

Of course it could just be a big load of steaming hooey, Reynolds is quite the wacky funster after all.

Anyway, it’s a fun little chat with host Jimmy Fallon if you have a few minutes spare.

Meanwhile, Deadpool 2 hits home on August 22. Grab the Blu-ray or 4K Ultra HD for the stretchier “Super Duper $@%!#& Cut”.
