Ryan Reynolds is not going to have as much freedom as he thought in Deadpool 3. It seems that censorship has come to Marvel with only one aspect.
Marvel has censored Ryan Reynolds with Deadpool 3 for a very specific reason. A new report from Yahoo has revealed a very worrying update on the production of the third installment of the adventures of the Merc with a Mouth. This has happened during the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike. Apparently, the actor who plays Wade Wilson is not going to be able to improvise.
The actor is known for his comedic chops, including his flair for improvisation. Especially when it comes to his already iconic Marvel anti-hero. However, since the actor is credited as a writer for Deadpool 3, may not improvise or deviate from the script per WGA guidelines and as a WGA member for the duration of the strike. Therefore, the production of the third installment faces censorship that is conditioned by the circumstances.
The writers’ strike causes the censorship of the MCU
However, there is a small legal loophole, a loophole that they can take advantage of in Deadpool 3. Apparently, Ryan Reynolds is a producer of the Marvel Studios film. Technically, according to WGA rules, producers can make “incidental minor adjustments to dialogue or narration before or during the principal photography period.” However, the WGA asked the producers to avoid any practices similar to that of the scriptwriters right now to support the strike.
The Daily Dot newspaper has pointed out the amusing coincidence that Ryan Reynolds’ original role as Wade Wilson in X-Men: Origins – Wolverine was born out of the 2007 writers’ strike. There, the actor basically wrote all of his lines due to the lack of direction in the script. As for the current strike, the Marvel Studios actor will have to live up to all the expectations of his members while making Deadpool 3. Or, conversely, if he breaks them, he’ll be kicked out of the Writers Guild of America.
