The third installment in the Deadpool franchise, Deadpool 3 is set to hit the theatres in November 2024. The upcoming movie has made quite a few headlines over the past weeks and anyone with an Internet connection probably knows why. The announcement of Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine after his death in Logan had fans jumping out of their seats. The focus, however, has since shifted to T.J. Miller, a former Fox co-star of Reynolds who made contentious remarks about the actor who plays Merc with a Mouth.
T.J Miller Says Ryan Reynolds was “Horrifically Mean”

T.J. Miller had previously claimed that his co-star, Ryan Reynolds had been “horrifically mean” to him on the sets of the two Deadpool films, causing tension in their relationship over the past few years.
“As the character, he was like, horrifically mean to me. But to me, as if I’m Weasel. He was like ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you do just enough exposition that it’s funny and then we can leave and get back to the real movie.”
Owing to this, Miller acknowledged that he doesn’t anticipate returning for a part in Deadpool, as he believed Reynolds was being genuine with his words.
“That’s exactly why he said that. Because I am not funnier than he is at all, right? And I haven’t been in more movies than him.”
The man behind Weasel also went ahead to state that after the success of Deadpool, fame might have gotten into the lead actor’s head, at least that’s what it seemed like to Miller. However, now with the Deadpool franchise inching closer and closer to its’ grand MCU debut, T.J. Miller has stepped up to clear the air.
All Good Between the Actors?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor T.J. Miller revealed that he and co-star Ryan Reynolds have resolved their on-set conflict. Miller revealed that after claims were made by him, Reynolds reached out to him and they talked about the situation at hand. He then described his claims as “a misunderstanding,” adding that they have since made up.
“It was very cool for him to say, ‘Hey, you know, I just heard on the show that you were upset about this.’ And I kind of said, ‘You know, I’m not,’ and then we sort of just hashed it out really quickly.”
The Silicon Valley actor admitted that he did not realize what the repercussions of his words were going to be. He also stated that even though he said several nice things about his co-star in the same interview, the positives did not seem to make it to media coverage. Miller added that it only took them a single day to sort out their differences and get their relationship back on track.
“I didn’t think I had said anything that was that negative. I feel bad that it was picked up and that it was misconstrued. But no, it was the next day — he and I talked, and it’s fine.”
Even though fans are speculating that the sudden switch up in Miller’s words could very well be because he wants a spot on the cast list for Deadpool 3, it is still not confirmed whether the actor will or will not be seen beside Ryan Reynolds. With the duo allegedly being on good terms now, T.J. Miller could potentially return as Weasel.
