Deadpool 2 is in theatres TODAY - Some Ryan Reynolds photos from DP2 - along with Zazie Beetz and Julian Dennison
With the 2nd installment of the incredibly popular Marvel movie Deadpool coming to theatres today, May 18, 2018, it seemed like maybe it was time for me to start posting some of the photos I took at the set back when it was filming last summer.
These photos see Ryan in & out of his DP suit on set just a day after the production had to shut down after the death of their new stunt driver S.J. (Joi) Harris Needless to say many of us were shocked to see them pick right back up. But, there they were, doing more scenes, along with stunts at the location under the Granville Bridge that has been used by many productions over the years..
On the day I was there, they shot almost exclusively with Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. They did stunts, but those were apparently super early in the morning, to avoid inconveniencing people too much. A bit later, they did scenes with Julian Dennison as Russell, along with a stunt person in a suit that clearly is going to be CGI'ed over for the scene.
Favorite part of the day was the 1 crew member (its always just one.) who was OBSESSED with me & the pap that was there to the point he followed us around photographing us.
So since he was eager to be famous, I gave him his wish today. Congrats generic dude. You made my blog post.
Also at set was Zazie Beetz dressed as Domino. But I never saw the scene she was shooting, as it was clearly later in the day.
Deadpool 2 is in theatres RIGHT NOW!
Deadpool 2 hits theatres May 18, 2018 - Heres some BTS of Josh Brolin & Zazie Beetz as Cable and Domino, oh and Deadpool too.
With the 2nd installment of the incredibly popular Marvel movie Deadpool coming to theatres on May 18, 2018, it seemed like maybe it was time for me to start posting some of the photos I took at the set back when it was filming last summer.
If you remember the end of the first Deadpool movie, you will recall the Merc With A Mouth telling us all that Cable would be coming for the 2nd one... and sure enough, he is. They got none other than Thanos to be Cable. Josh Brolin came on to the project as Cable, and I was lucky enough on 1 day to see him & his stunt double out doing scenes for the movie.
On the day I was there, they had Cable running down the street with his big ass gun. Not a lot of action during the times I was there. But I did get a couple takes of him where he aimed his gun right at where I was. Of course a lot of CGI work has been done after the fact, to make him look more like Cable, and less like Josh Brolin cosplaying as a homeless assassin.... but only a smidge less than what it took to make him look like Thanos.
I also saw upcoming "Atlanta" star Zazie Beetz and her stunt woman (NOT S.J. (Joi) Harris, this was before she came on) filming scenes one day where she simply was driving around. This was before the terrible tragedy that took the life of S.J. Harris, no real stunts of note were being done on this day. Just a lot of driving around attached to the back & front of a film truck.
I had the pleasure of meeting her on two different occasions. First, just before filming started when I stumbled upon her quite literally by accident one day. Another time, part way through filming when she was returning from being out of town. Wondefully sweet both times I met her.
Also on 1 of the days I caught some stunt scenes with Deadpool (not sure if Ryan Reynolds was in the suit for these takes.... i'm inclined to say no since it entailed driving in & around traffic). I will have more Deadlpool photos, including many of Ryan in another blog post soon.
For now, heres a snall teaser to hold you over till the movie gets here later this month.
