Well wouldn’t this be awesome? Leslie Jones wants to be Ryan Reynolds’ sidekick in a superhero flick and we’re totally on board with it.

In fact, Jones revealed that her dream project is Deadpool 2 and now it’s our dream project for her as well.

On Late Night with Seth Meyers’ New Year’s Eve Special, the Ghostbusters actress opened up about her desire to be Reynolds’ co-star in the upcoming Deadpool 2 movie.

“First of all, Ryan Reynolds has got to be one of the finest pieces of specimen,” Jones said on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “On top of that he’s hilarious. And Deadpool, I would love to be just the sidekick just feeding him back the lines.”

Of course, no superhero is complete without their set of awesome super powers and the 49-year-old actress has an interesting idea for hers.

“I just like to be loud,” the Saturday Night Live star revealed. She then added that her powerful scream would be used to make “everybody’s clothes just come off them.”

While this seems like an outrageous power, Jones is a hilarious and outrageous actress so if anyone could make these powers a real thing it would be her.

Fingers crossed Reynolds and the director of Deadpool are listening to Jones’ plea to become his sidekick. His character could use a sassy sidekick, don’t you think?

Deadpool 2 is slated to hit theaters on March 2, 2018.
