Superhero Film-Hater Matthew Macfadyen Is Now Doing a Superhero Film

With Succession ending quickly, star Matthew Macfadyen is already lining up his subsequent initiatives. However Deadline’s report that the present’s beloved Tom Whambamthankyouma’am (I don’t watch Succession) will likely be becoming a member of the solid of Deadpool 3 comes with some scrumptious, probably embarrassing irony: Macfadyen crapped all around the superhero film style, some 10 months again.

In a Self-importance Honest profile for the journal’s June 2022 problem, Macfadyen went all Martin Scorsese on the superhero-industrial advanced. “I’ve achieved one large movie like that,” he mentioned, of the blockbuster-y stuff that each one large motion pictures are made from today, “and it was a green-screen factor. It’s ass-paralyzingly boring, simply performing to tennis balls and dots on the display. You’re doing it for the cash.”

Alas, now Macfadyen has to do it for the cash, similar to you and me. “Marvel cash” talks, and that’s the precise sort that Deadpool 3 is working with now: Disney purchased up Deadpool studio twentieth Century Fox a yr after the second got here out. You’d need to pay me not less than $1 million to spend time with Ryan Reynolds (a.okay.a. Deadpool himself), so I hope that Macfadyen will likely be appropriately compensated.

He’ll be becoming a member of fellow members of our capitalistic society Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine!!!) within the flick, at present scheduled for Nov. 8, 2024. It’s unknown what Macfadyen’s position is as of now, nevertheless it’s very probably that there will likely be tennis balls and/or dots concerned. Hopefully Macfadyen has had a while to get these glutes in form.
