How T.J. Miller Embarrassed His Wife By Reading The Deadpool 2 Script

Weasel looking at Wade's face in Deadpool

With last week's Comic-Con behind us, we've gotten plenty of new tidbits of information regarding the various upcoming superhero franchises and popular TV shows. Trailers have debuted, and casts have become a bit more chatty about what to expect from highly anticipated blockbusters. But one upcoming sequel didn't reveal any footage or images: Deadpool 2. But despite this disappointment, the cast and crew of Deadpool's sequel have been getting a bit chatty about the contents of the next installment. T.J. Miller in particular has been open about about how he thinks the film may be even funnier than the original, and he's now revealed that reading the script caused him to embarrass his wife in a public place.

My wife turned around the corner in the hotel lobby bar in Vancouver and she said, 'Oh my god some guy is like cackling, who's making all that noise? That is so rude in the middle of a... Oh that's my husband reading the Deadpool 2 script.' And it's me just crying, laughing, losing my mind. I kept having to put my iPad down on the middle of the table. It's an even more ridiculous kind of narrative that I can't talk about at all.

This fantastic story comes from an interview T.J. Miller did with MTV during San Diego Comic-Con. Despite being an accomplished comedian, it seems that the contents of Deadpool 2's script are gut busting enough to cause Miller to make a scene. But considering how irreverent Miller is everyday, it shouldn't take much for him to garner attention.

While Deadpool was the surprise hit of last year, the anticipation and expectations for the sequel are extremely high. The fandom wants to be similarly surprised and tickled by Wade Wilson's adventures, especially now that his fourth wall breaking antics have become so iconic. Deadpool 2 will also expand the cast by including newcomer X-Men Cable and Domino, which has the potential for making the cast a bit too crowded. Both Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus are returning as well, so there will be at least five mutants causing havoc during the sequel's runtime.

That being said, the cast seems on board for Deadpool 2. T.J. Miller can't stop expressing how funny the film's script is, and Colossus actor Stefan Kapicic has teased that the character will get the attention and screentime that was lacking when he used to appear in the main X-Men franchise. And with Josh Brolin and Zazie Beetz joining the already impressive cast, the element are all there for a fantastic blockbuster.

Deadpool 2 will arrive in theaters on June 1, 2018. In the meantime, check out our 2017 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
