This past week, a rumor went around that Deadpool 2 had some pretty poor test screenings. It hadn’t yet publicly been denied by anyone associated with the film – though there was a story that suggested that the recent reshoots were to add more Cable and Domino, and now, that seems to be backed up by a member of the cast.
At MCM Comic Con, we were able to get Negasonic Teenage Warhead actress Brianna Hildebrand‘s comments on that recent rumor – and she denied it:
“No, it was nothing that had gone wrong. I think it’s a common misconception too – that people think that reshoots are to fix things that people didn’t like. A lot of the time, reshoots are to add more of the things that people loved. [Filmmakers] watch their films again and are like “better fix that”. I don’t know how much I can say about that. Usually films hate it when you talk about their reshoots – solely because people think that it’s because the film was bad for the test audience – but it was all good.”
So there you have it. If Deadpool 2 does in fact suck, it’s not because initial test audiences didn’t like it. If anything, it should be better now that they’ve had a chance to add some of the better stuff in. Fans should expect a “different” film than the first one, though, as Josh Brolin recently even said that it will have a more serious element to it. The trailers, however, have given us enough reason to be excited for the upcoming Marvel film.
We’ll know for sure when Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18th, 2018.
