As if the 2016 presidential race wasn't already crowded enough, here comes Deadpool. "Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds tweeted the mercenary's possible campaign logo with the caption, "Thoughts?" Is this Deadpool's way of launching an exploratory committee?

While it's not clear what party he would join should he decide to run, one can rest assured that Deadpool would really bring the party to whichever party he sides with. And this doesn't really seem like a stretch when you think about 'Pool's real name -- "Wade Wilson." Sounds presidential, doesn't it, in a strictly early 20th century sorta way?

Regardless of whether or not Deadpool runs for office, he'll be campaigning for donations at the movie theater when "Deadpool" opens on February 12.
