🚫 Deadpool 3 Halt! Lights, Camera, No Action as Hollywood Strike Takes Effect 🎬
🚧 “Deadpool 3” has dropped its weapons and called it quits amidst the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. While Ryan Reynolds’ fast-quipping Merc with a Mouth takes a breather, other productions are either soldiering on or wrapping up their shoots before the strike’s effect becomes more pronounced. Controversially, some say studios are plotting a robotic takeover…with AI. 🤖
✍️ You’ve heard it right folks, Deadpool 3’s production has hit a brick wall thanks to the SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike. Seems like our favorite fast-talking, katana-wielding anti-hero is out of wisecracks for now. Remember, though, he did endure the WGA writers’ strike, albeit with a catch – our beloved Ryan Reynolds couldn’t make up his wisecracks on the spot. Ain’t that like a burger without cheese? 🍔
Our cinematic gladiators including Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine and Jennifer Garner returning as Elektra are also benched for the moment. We’ve recently got a glimpse of Deadpool and Wolverine strolling down the lane, with Wolverine donning the good old X-Men outfit. Seems like that bromantic walk will have to wait. 😔
Other blockbuster sequels like Gladiator 2 and Mortal Kombat 2 are also in the same shaky boat as Deadpool 3. Seems like Hollywood’s going on a break! 😅 But it’s not all doom and gloom. Some productions have found their lifeboats. How? Well, let’s say they are blessed by the British.
You see, House of Dragon season 2 is still flapping its wings, thanks to the majority cast being a part of the UK’s Equity Union. Even Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power season 2 managed to tie a neat little bow on their production before the strike dawned. 🧙♂️
Now here’s where things get juicy. 🍿 At a recent press conference, SAG-AFTRA’s chief negotiator, Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, spoke about an alleged proposal from the studios. An AI proposal, to be precise. Could our beloved heroes and heroines be replaced by codes and algorithms? 🤖
Remember folks, this ain’t advice, just news. It seems like Hollywood’s going through a bit of a cliffhanger episode right now. What’s next? Will our beloved actors return to the screens or will studios take a deep dive into the realms of artificial intelligence?
As we wait for the credits to roll, I gotta ask, how would you feel if Deadpool’s wisecracks were scripted by an AI? Could the robotic humor match the wit and charm of our beloved Merc with a Mouth? 💬🤔
