Deadpool 3 has begun work despite the Writers Guild Association strike , but the effects of the unrest will be felt no matter what.
Collider reports in fact that the protagonist Ryan Reynolds , due to the writers’ contract with the studio, will not be able to improvise any dialogue while the strike is in progress: the script will in fact have to be filmed as it was delivered before the start of the strike itself , as the WGA does not admit any writing jobs at this time. Improvisation – quite common even in blockbusters, especially if they are comedic in nature – amounts to a modification of the script.
This will greatly limit the work of Reynolds , used to put his sense of humor in the characters he plays, especially when it comes to Deadpool . The Chatty Mercenary has an unpredictable way of reacting to what is happening around him, as we all know.
In short, we’ll see if filming will continue without a hitch, or if the production will decide to interrupt it pending the end of the strike. In recent days, Marvel Studios has already suspended Thunderbolts , Wonder Man and Blade .
The WGA ‘s agitation is essential to guarantee the well-being and protect the rights of Hollywood screenwriters: the aim is to obtain better working environments, shared payment rules, and also regulations that safeguard writers against the use of artificial intelligences by studios.
Deadpool 3 is expected to release in US theaters on November 8, 2024 . We will keep you posted.
