It’s been a bit of a confusing time for Deadpool fans. While anticipation has been high for The Untitled Deadpool Sequel, there were some recent rumors on Twitter regarding a supposed underwhelming response to the early test screenings to the film. Despite there being a couple different people stating this (including Robert Meyer Burnett, who I very much trust), the outlet Collider says otherwise.
As reported yesterday in an update to our post, the film was tested in January, and at that screening, it tested around 90 or 91, meaning that audiences are supposedly clicking with the material pretty well. But, regardless of whether or not the film is being well-received or not, they are in the process of reshoots. So what exactly are they shooting, if not ways to improve the supposedly negative reviews?
According to the outlet, they are specifically aiming to add more scenes with Cable and Domino, who reportedly tested very well in screenings.
All in all, it makes sense. As is common knowledge nowadays, reshoots and additional photography are a normal thing in the business, so it’s impossible to go off them alone as to whether or not a film is in trouble. At this point, it’s just a case of he said she said. Collider tends to be pretty reliable, but Burnett is no slouch either (and he does consistently do work for Collider on the video side of things).
What do you make of all this? Do you think Deadpool 2 is in trouble? Sound off down below!
