When the first Deadpool hit the theatres on 12th February 2016, fans saw the crazy gun-wielding, gravity-defying, self-regenerating, fourth-wall-breaking gun for hire, we all forgot about Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern, which is what Reynolds was going for. The portrayal of such a meta was a refreshing take on the world-saving superhero mold, and fans loved it.
And helping Reynolds in this endeavor was a myriad of supporting cast members, who are all returning again to blow the audience away with their performance in the upcoming Deadpool 3.
Well, almost all except one.
Who “Weaseled” Out?
In a recent interview on The Adam Carola Show, T.J Miller, the actor who plays the fan-favorite character Weasel in Deadpool said that he won’t be returning to play the role in the upcoming Deadpool 3, the reason that “Ryan Reynolds hates me” and that he changed once he got ‘super famous.’
“I think after he got super, super famous from the first Deadpool, things kind of changed. … I don’t know, would I work with him again? No. I would not work with him again. But I’ve said that about Michael Bay and now we’re friends and I would work with him again. But I think Michael Bay is different. And Michael Bay worked on a movie with Ryan Reynolds also and so he has a very specific opinion of Ryan Reynolds and that was a good part of our last conversation…”
When the interviewer asked what might be the reason that Ryan Reynolds hates him, he continued by saying,
“He’s like, ‘You know what’s great about you Weasel? You’re not the star. But you just, you know, you do just enough exposition that it’s funny. And then we can leave and get back to the real movie.’ Sure he’s [riffing]. That’s EXACTLY why he said that. Because I’m not funnier than he is at all right?”
What’s in store for Deadpool 3?
Ryan Renolds recently teased the fandom about what they can expect from Deadpool 3, though nothing major about the premise was shared, we did get a huge announcement that Hugh Jackman would be returning to play Wolverine in the upcoming film!
Fans were beyond ecstatic when Hugh Jackman himself confirmed this as he sat down with Reynolds in one of the videos on his Instagram page. Fans are now impatiently waiting when they can see these two mutants together on the big screen.
Deadpool 3 is slated to come out on 6 September 2024.
