Vastavam web: Ryan Reynolds has revealed that the studio 20th Century Fox, which has produced “Deadpool 2”, made the writers cut a joke about Disney from the his upcoming antihero film.The Walt Disney Company, which owns studios such as Lucasfilm, Pixar and Marvel, last year reached a deal with Fox to purchase its assets, including its movie and TV divisions. The deal is expected to be completed later this year.
The 41-year-old actor, who co-wrote “Deadpool 2” with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, told Entertainment Weekly that Fox forced him to remove a Disney-related joke from the movie and believes that it was a “wise decision”.Talking about the future of “Deadpool” under the new studio, Reynolds said he is clueless about it.
“I really genuinely don’t know a thing about it. I read that (Disney chairman and CEO) Bob Iger felt that there’s plenty of room in that universe to have a rated-R character like Deadpool. “This is completely conjecture on my part, but I wouldn’t imagine that Disney bought Fox to dismantle it or something like that. I think that Disney bought Fox so it could have that in its arsenal,” Reynolds said.
