Ryan Reynolds Says Deadpool & Wolverine Officially Finished

Ryan Reynolds has officially announced that “Deadpool & Wolverine” is complete, and fans can expect to see it in theaters on July 26. The announcement came through a hidden QR code in a teaser, which led viewers to a humorous disclaimer read by Reynolds himself.

In the disclaimer, Reynolds sets the tone for the upcoming film, describing it as “paper thin” and filled with senseless violence, jokes at the expense of both himself and Hugh Jackman, and a complete disregard for Marvel’s traditional post-credits scenes. He humorously warns viewers to prepare for a film that will lower their IQ while raising their heart rate, as it takes them to a “vapid Dreamland” where adults in tights act out a “giant cultural cry for help.”

Reynolds’ playful tone leaves fans wondering if the claim about the lack of a post-credits scene is genuine or just another example of Deadpool’s signature fourth-wall-breaking humor. The absence of a post-credits scene would be a significant departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s tradition, which has included such scenes since 2008’s “Iron Man.”

The disclaimer also emphasizes the film’s R rating, a point of pride for Reynolds. In a recent interview with Fandango, he expressed his gratitude to Disney for allowing the film to go as hard as it did. He praised Disney for taking a significant step by embracing the film’s mature content, adding a new dimension to the company’s diverse entertainment offerings.

Reynolds’ journey with Deadpool has been a long and tumultuous one. The character, known for his foul-mouthed, fourth-wall-breaking antics, first appeared in comics in 1991. Fans have been eager for a big-screen adaptation ever since. However, the project faced numerous delays and setbacks, with 20th Century Fox initially hesitant to greenlight an offbeat, R-rated superhero movie that mocked the genre itself.

Reynolds first became involved with Deadpool in 2005, meeting with Marvel’s Avi Arad and working with screenwriter David Goyer. The project went through various stages of development, often disappearing from the radar only to resurface later. Reynolds likened the experience to a tumultuous relationship, filled with emotional ups and downs.

Despite the challenges, Reynolds remained committed to the character. His portrayal of Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” was met with disappointment from fans, who were unhappy with the character’s treatment in the film. Reynolds himself shared their frustration, but he continued to push for a standalone Deadpool movie.

In 2014, test footage of Deadpool leaked online, generating an overwhelmingly positive response from fans. This reaction convinced Fox to greenlight the project, leading to the release of the first “Deadpool” film in 2016. The film’s success paved the way for a sequel, and now, the highly anticipated “Deadpool & Wolverine.”

Reynolds’ dedication to the character and his unique sense of humor have been key to Deadpool’s success. He has always been vocal about the importance of maintaining the character’s R-rated edge, and he credits the film’s success to its hyper-specific tone and strong script.

The limited budget for the first “Deadpool” film forced the team to be creative, resulting in a film that looked like a big-budget superhero movie despite its modest resources. This approach allowed the filmmakers to maintain creative control and deliver a film that stayed true to the character’s irreverent spirit.

As “Deadpool & Wolverine” prepares to hit theaters, fans are eager to see how the film will continue to push boundaries and defy expectations. Reynolds’ announcement has only heightened anticipation, promising a film that will deliver the same blend of ultraviolence, raunchy comedy, and self-awareness that made the first two films so beloved.

With Reynolds and Jackman at the helm, “Deadpool & Wolverine” is set to be a wild ride, filled with the kind of humor and action that fans have come to expect from the franchise. As the release date approaches, fans can look forward to another unforgettable adventure with the Merc with a Mouth and the iconic Wolverine.
