Since you’re violating High Culture rule #3, we’ll start.

Ryan Reynolds is directly responsible for the death of a black woman by knowingly forcing her to perform a stunt she stated she was not comfortable performing.

I can't find any reference to Joi Harris stating she was not comfortable attempting the stunt that ended her life, nor that she was forced, and none saying Reynolds was responsible for hiring her.
I can find plenty saying she wasn't qualified and that another, more experienced, stuntwoman was ready and willing.

In any case, I am really not interested in it. I thought the first Deadpool was really overhyped and trying way too hard to be funny. I don't expect the second one to be much better.

Do you actually have evidence/a citation for this? Because it's a pretty big deal to accuse someone of manslaughter and I've not seen anything suggesting that Reynolds is to blame in the slightest. It certainly sounded like negligence on the part of the studio (and director) though.

Do you have a first post that can conform to the rules?

Ryan is a producer and it’s well established how much he cares for the character.

Producers ignored all concerns that she wasn’t ready and had her do it anyway.

Sure, he’s no John Landis, but he bears responsibility.

In a world where trailers usually include the best jokes in the movie, it's refreshing to find a situation where the best jokes in the trailers aren't even in the movie.

Pretty good film, in my opinion. The post-credit scenes were especially amusing. For those of you wondering how long to wait, there are five scenes in total, but they're mostly back to back. After the sequence, there are no additional scenes post credits, though the music is amusing.

Agree that the trailer doesn't spoil the film.

As for blaming the death of the stuntwoman on Ryan Reynolds, ehhh. It does appear as though those around her saw her as not ready for the stunt. That said, stunts of this nature do have some risk, and it seems reasonable to attribute responsibility to a number of individuals who are not Ryan Reynolds as well. I don't see anything indicating that Ryan was particularly involved in "forcing" her to do this stunt, so that accusation seems a bit trumped up.
