Ryan Reynolds Can’t Improv On Deadpool 3 Due To Writers Strike

dead pool star Ryan Reynolds will be on a metaphorical leash while filming Deadpool 3, and the actor is reportedly unable to utilize his penchant for improv due to the ongoing writers’ strike. According to Collider, Deadpool 3 is now filming in the midst of the WGA strike, and with Reynolds credited as a writer on Deadpool 3, you cannot make changes to the dialog. Which means that Deadpool may be a lot less of a jokester when Part 3 rolls around.

Under the rules of the strike, which is being carried out by the WGA in search of better working conditions, directors, producers and other non-screenwriting talent can make “occasional minor adjustments to dialogue or narration made before or during the term”. principal photography.” This does not apply to Reynolds (via THR), as he will be credited as a writer on Deadpool 3which suggests that filming the Marvel sequel will be a major change for the improv-loving star.


How much this will affect Reynolds’ portrayal of The Merc with a Mouth remains to be seen, but it’s certainly very different from how he’s portrayed the character in the past. “So we were in the middle of production, there were no writers, nothing,” Reynolds said of the making of the much-criticized. X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a comic book film also made during the writers’ strike. “Every line I have in the movie I wrote myself because in the script we had it said, ‘Wade Wilson shows up, he talks so fast.’ I was like, ‘What?! What am I supposed to do with it?’”
