Ryan Reynolds: Blake Lively helped write Deadpool 2 and more movies


Reynolds says the “inherent sexism” of Hollywood could prevent her from being recognized for her ideas on her films like “Deadpool.”

Ryan Reynolds is back in the limelight as the star of the upcoming video game sci-fi comedy “Free Guy”, released in theaters Friday, August 13 by director Shawn Levy. Inevitably, as the actor goes on press tours, questions regarding “Deadpool,” the sequel to that film, and the upcoming “Deadpool 3” in development have surfaced. And Reynolds, in an interview with SirusXM (via Insider), said that one of the secrets to his success as a writer (he’s credited on “Deadpool 2”) is his wife, Blake Lively, even though she doesn’t. do not get recognition.

“She’s been so helpful to me in ‘Deadpool’, all kinds of movies that have been big hits,” said Reynolds, who called Lively “a really talented, multi-trait kind of person.”

He added that his best contributions as a writer to projects often come from Lively. “There are a lot of A ++ writings that I wrote that were actually Blake; Blake would jump in, pick up the keyboard and [say] ‘And that?’ And I was like, ‘This is amazing,’ ”Reynolds said.

“She helped me so much in ‘Deadpool’, all kinds of movies that were big hits,” he added. “She still has a lot of bricks in that wall.” As Reynolds explained, “I write about a lot of my films. It has been a survival mechanism for me for a long time. Sometimes I’m credited, sometimes I’m not.

Reynolds added that he often speaks to directors and producers about Lively’s work on the scripts, but the credit goes to him. “Maybe it’s because there is inherent sexism in the business,” Reynolds said. “I’ll say a lot of times, ‘She wrote that, Blake wrote that not me. It was her. And it’s like, later on, they repeat the story again like’ I wrote it ‘.

As for “Deadpool 3,” Reynolds told Collider there’s a good chance the irreverent superhero comedy sequel will start filming next year. “The percentage of luck? I do not know. I couldn’t put a percentage on that. I would say it’s 50/50 maybe? We are developing it very actively and getting it into pretty good shape. What is the month of hell? August? Ah next year? Probably damn good. I would say 70%. Marvel has yet to announce a director or release date for the film.
