A few days ago an artist named Michael Vincent Bramley posted on Twitter that he had tweeted the exact plot of the new “Once Upon A Deadpool” at Ryan Reynolds almost a year ago, and included proof of the posting with screenshots.
The posting, which was tweeted at actor Ryan Reynolds at the time, is actually pretty remarkably close to the final product. Bramley suggests Fox could utilize a PG-13 “Deadpool” film as a meta-commentary on PG-13 films, and the framing device could employ Fred Savage in a “Princess Bride” homage.
That led to headlines and Reddit threads saying Fox deserves to give Bramley some credit. Now Bramley has returned to Twitter and put the issue to rest saying: “[Ryan Reynolds] and I had a brief talk and I believe he was as confused as I was. It seems like this may all just have been a big, insane coincidence and I’m happy to leave it at that. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie in December!”.
“Once Upon a Deadpool” hits cinemas on December 12th.
