T.J. Miller, who plays Deadpool, has revealed that he believes star Ryan Reynolds despises him. The Deadpool films were a spin-off of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise, following the infamous “merc with a mouth” Wade Wilson (Reynolds) after he develops the mutant ability to regenerate his body after suffering severe burns. Morena Baccarin as his fiancée Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand and Stefan Kapii as the B-team X-Men Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus, and T.J. Miller as Weasel, a bartender who is Deadpool’s best friend round out the cast. All four actors returned for Deadpool 2 in 2018, along with a new cast of characters led by Josh Brolin as the cybernetically enhanced Cable and Julian Dennison as the young mutant Firefist.
As it has recently been announced that Deadpool 3 is officially in the works, the ensemble cast of the Deadpool films has been the subject of many discussions. Although Deadpool 2 was a huge box office success, the sequel was in the works for quite some time after 20th Century Fox was acquired by Disney, and the MCU needed to figure out how to incorporate a notoriously foul-mouthed hero into their firmly PG-13 franchise. The answer is that Deadpool 3 is the MCU’s first R-rated film, and it will be released on September 6, 2024, as the first film in Phase 6. Reynolds is the only cast member confirmed to return so far, though Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine.
TJ Miller’s Post-Deadpool Controversies Explained
Miller did not mention his own controversial behavior after appearing in both Deadpool films in the quote. The star has been involved in a number of high-profile incidents, beginning with his arrest in 2016 for allegedly assaulting an Uber driver. The following year, he was accused of a sexual assault that occurred while he was in college, followed by allegations that he sent a transphobic email to a film critic.
All of this was exacerbated in 2018 when the comedian was arrested again, this time on suspicion of sending a fake bomb threat to Amtrak, followed by allegations of inappropriate workplace behavior on the set of the sitcom SIlicon Valley.
Miller left Silicon Valley after season 4 and has had fewer roles since then. The Deadpool actor’s most notable project since then has been 2020’s Underwater, which was originally shot in 2017. Given the actor’s own controversies and how they have influenced his return to various projects, it appears unlikely that he would be invited back to the Deadpool universe in the first place, regardless of any potential conflict in his relationship with the lead star.

Awkward moments during the filming of Deadpool created a rift between the actors
The “Silicon Valley” alum then described the alleged uncomfortable scene while filming, calling Reynolds “sort of an insecure dude” and saying “it’s weird that he hates me.”
“On ‘Deadpool,’ we had a really strange moment where he said, ‘Let’s do one more take.’ Then, as the character, he was horribly cruel to me, as if I were Weasel. So he said, ‘You know what I love about you, Weasel? ‘You’re not the star, but you do just enough exposition to make it funny, and then we can leave and get back to the real movie,’ says the director “Miller stated.
Later, he described the alleged encounter as “not a pleasant experience for me,” recalling the confusion of the crew members over how to react.
Miller hinted that he wasn’t asked to return to the franchise, despite making it clear that he had no intention of doing so on his own.
“I would not have done ‘Deadpool 3’ if they had said to me, ‘We want you to do ‘Deadpool 3,’ and we’re going to pay you twice as much,'” he explained.
“I believe [Reynolds] should make a ‘Deadpool 3’ and keep making movies. I just think he doesn’t like me, and I thought he said it strangely. I’m at a point in my life where I don’t need to see ‘Deadpool 3’ anymore “Miller stated.
“It’s like I’m saying I’m not dating Margo Robbie”
Miller’s statement elicited an immediate response from the internet. “Miller is not a trustworthy storyteller or a moral person,” one user said. Ryan was a major star before Deadpool.” “It’s like I’m saying I’m not dating Margo Robbie,” another user joked. Meanwhile, one tweet stated, “Great news for Deadpool 3.” “Completely normal reaction,” said another. Ryan Reynolds has earned my respect even more.” “I liked TJ Miller when I first saw Silicon Valley, but it turns out he’s even more of a loser than the loser he played on the show,” said another. I had no idea it was possible.” “TJ Miller complaining that Ryan Reynolds hates him really makes me like Ryan Reynolds,” one user said.
Who Is Coming Back for Deadpool 3?
While much of the Deadpool 2 cast and crew will not be appearing in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Reynolds will be joined by at least one major character from Fox’s X-Men films: Wolverine. Hugh Jackman recently confirmed that he will reprise his iconic role in Deadpool 3, though details about his involvement are limited. Recently, it was reported that Zazie Beetz, who played the mutant Domino, was also in talks to return.
