20th Century Fox recently did a test screening for Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin’s upcoming Deadpool 2 and the audience reactions don’t appear to be very good for the studio.

Comments on Twitter captured by ScreenGeek, indicate the movie is a “HUGE, Alien 3 blunder with the story.”

Blogger Jeremy Conrad added his own thoughts saying, “Fox screened Deadpool 2 tonight (not Dark Phoenix again) and…yikes! First reaction wasn’t what I expected to hear.” Conrad added the film is also 30 minutes longer than Deadpool, has a weak plot, and Morena Baccarin’s Vanesa character is wasted.

Conrad reports he was threatened for legal action. However, he did not actually attend the screening.

However, he did have an anonymous source giving him the details.

Conrad and Burnett weren’t the only ones to report Deadpool 2 did not fare well in its test screening.

Interestingly enough, Josh Brolin who plays both Thanos in Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War and Cable in Deadpool 2 revealed Deadpool 2 is currently undergoing reshoots. While promoting Avengers: Infinity War to Entertainment Weekly he told them, “I’m up here right now in snowy Vancouver doing reshoots for Deadpool.” That was just three days ago. And they’ve been working on these reshoots since the middle of last month.

Now, the big question is if these rumors about the movie are actually true? It’s possible, but it could also be part of Deadpool 2’s marketing strategy to try and break through the noise Avengers: Infinity War is making. Deadpool isn’t shy when it comes to innovative marketing. They’ve already done a Good Housekeeping stunt. It’s definitely possible this could be just a giant marketing gimmick. However, this could also just be a bunch of made-up rumors started in the Twitter-verse. It wouldn’t be the first time a spontaneous set of lies have taken a life of their own.

But I want to hear from you, what do you think? Is Deadpool 2 in trouble? Tell us in the comments below!

Deadpool 2 comes out on May 18, 2018.
