Ryan Reynolds is renowned for his improvisational skills, particularly in his portrayal of Disney’s most profane superhero—attributes that seem to align with the Deadpool persona. Recently, Reynolds took a bold stance against individuals leaking images from the actively filmed set of Deadpool 3, as well as the websites disseminating these photos, as reported by Variety. (For those curious about a recent leak hinting at the appearance of an undisclosed MCU villain challenging Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, feel free to search; we’d rather not incur Ryan Reynolds’ wrath.)
Reynolds expressed his concerns in a comprehensive statement, emphasizing the importance of preserving the surprise element integral to cinematic magic. He highlighted the film’s commitment to real, natural environments and practical effects, urging restraint from websites and social channels in prematurely revealing images. Reynolds acknowledged the excitement driving spoiler-sharing but stressed the film’s intent to bring joy to the audience.
Despite the seemingly polite tone, Reynolds’ penchant for trolling remained intact. On Twitter/X, he declared his participation in the “war” against leaks, drawing a parallel with Deadpool’s origin story, which commenced with leaked test footage. He playfully cautioned against overusing phrases like “Deadpool Leaks” to avoid disrupting search results for genuine enthusiasts seeking leaks, spoilers, or scoops related to the film.
Accompanying this announcement was a substantial thread featuring authentic, spoiler-laden set photos, unveiling a diverse array of characters—from Predator to Mickey Mouse. This revelation hinted at what could become the most extravagant and star-studded film event of the year, pending confirmation of the set photos’ authenticity. In a nod to the savvy SEO tactics employed, Reynolds showcased his understanding of the media landscape, leaving an open invitation for outlets to capitalize on his unique brand whenever he decides to retire the iconic red suit.
