According to reports by RadarOnline, the two best friends, Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, are going their separate ways and they barely speak to each other anymore.

“Ryan was something of a mentor to Jake back then. Friends think it was Jake who stepped away to be his own man. It’s sad because they used to be so close.”

During one of his interviews, Reynolds spoke about his friendship with Gyllenhaal and said,

“It’s rare in our industry to meet someone, a contemporary, and there’s no competition. There are just some friends you meet at a certain time in your life.”

During an interview, he was asked if he had ever imagined the actors sharing the same screen as Wolverine and Deadpool. Holland said,

“Yeah, of course, I have. I’m a big fan of both of those guys. I’m sure the film is going to be fantastic. I know they have George Cottle (Jr.) on their side right now as their stunt coordinator and second unit director. You couldn’t ask for a better guy. So I’m very excited about the film. I wish them all the best and I can’t wait to see those two go at it.”

Reynolds will still be able to improvise lines in the upcoming Deadpool 3 film by Marvel Studios, according to co-creator of Deadpool, Robert Liefeld. The ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike has put an end to the rumors that the actor was unable to improvise while filming.

Reynolds could do ADR (Additional Dialogue Replacement) work to change some of his lines once Deadpool 3 was in post-production after the WGA and studio reached a fair agreement to end the strike, according to Liefeld. Reynolds’ first appearance as Wade Wilson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in Deadpool 3.

Deadpool 3 will hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
