Just FYI, Ryan Reynolds Totally Spoils The Game Of Thrones Ending In Hobbs And Shaw

How very Deadpool of him.

If you still haven’t watched the final episodes of Game of Thrones and have managed to escape all spoilers about the ending, we strongly suggest you steer clear of Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs and Shaw.

Ryan Reynolds appears in the film as CIA agent Locke, who is one of the many Game of Thrones fans who hated the last episodes of the show.

You’re probably thinking it’s quite strange and random for there to be GoT spoilers in a Fast and Furious movie, and we’d have to agree, but it turns out it’s all thanks to Ryan.

Locke repeatedly makes references to GoT in the flick with director David Leitch telling RadioTimes.com the reason behind it.

“That’s Ryan’s twisted brain I think. When I asked him to do the scene in the Pancake House [at the beginning of the film] and to be this character Locke who gives the exposition of the virus, I asked him to help jazz it up.

“Ryan always has a lot of great ideas, and he wanted to riff on Game of Thrones, obviously it’s in the pop zeitgeist and it’s such an iconic show, and he’s like ‘let’s go after Game of Thrones for fun.'”

The spoiler appears at the end of the film in one of the many post-credits scenes. In the scene, Hobbs and Locke are on the phone talking about a powerful virus that’s being created and then Locke spoils how things end for Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.

Locke, apparently, can’t get over the fact that Jon Snow slept with his aunt, then (spoiler alert!) killed her and no one wants to talk about it.

Leitch added, “When we finished editing the movie and we brought him back for the coda, we were looking at things we could sort of dredge up from the original scene and what could be paid off, and that was one of them and he said, ‘Let’s find some Game of Thrones stuff.’ And by that time, the finale had come out, and it just felt like the right joke at the right time.”

Is it weird that we kind of love the fact Reynolds decided to throw the spoiler in? It pretty much proves he’s basically Deadpool in real life.

There's A Huge Mistake In Hobbs And Shaw That We Can't Just Ignore

It's just way too ridiculous...

When watching a Fast & Furious movie you understand that what you’re watching is pretty damn farfetched.

What started with street crews stealing DVD players has somehow morphed into saving the world, but fans love the movies no matter how crazy they get.

But there’s one thing that we can’t ignore.

In the new F&F spinoff, Hobbs & Shaw, we meet the families of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw.

Vanessa Kirby joins the cast as Shaw’s sister Hattie, a total badass who steals every scene she’s in.

But the thing that’s bothering us and many fans of the film, is the fact that Kirby is 31 years old and Statham is 52, making them 21 years apart in age. Now, it’s not crazy to have siblings who are 21 years apart, especially when they’ve got a brother, Owen Shaw, played by Luke Evans who is 40-years-old.

Helen Mirren plays the Shaw matriarch Magdalene “Queenie” and she’s 74, so that all makes sense – she would have been 22 when she had Deckard, 34 when she had Owen and 43 when she had Hattie. It’s all possible.

However, one thing that isn’t possible? The fact that in the movie, Shaw and Hattie are seen in flashbacks as young kids together carrying out cons. How would that be remotely possible if there’s a 21-year age gap?

In the movie, the pair appear to be around 10 years old with barely a few years between them as they perform pranks on the other kids in the neighbourhood.

Yeah, I don’t think it’s possible to suspend my disbelief THAT much.

Many fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter:

Once you see it, it’s pretty difficult to unsee it! Let’s be honest, though, every movie could use a dose of Vanessa Kirby, so we kind of get it.

Marvel Might Be Working On A Way To Introduce Deadpool Into The MCU With Spider-Man 3

Yes, please!

We’ve been wondering for a while how Disney would introduce Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe after acquiring the rights to the character after buying 20th Century Fox.

Now, MCU Cosmic, a site that regularly posts MCU rumours, reports that “a most-reliable source who has delivered 100% for [them] in the past” has told them that Marvel is figuring out how to introduce Deadpool into the MCU. Apparently, there are currently three ideas being floated around about how to do it.

MCU Cosmic reveals the three options include a solo movie, such as Deadpool 3, a Disney+ limited series or an appearance in Spider-Man 3 with Tom Holland.

They report that a Disney+ series might not work because everything on the streaming service appears family friendly and Deadpool is most definitely not family friendly. But it is an option!

The series would also give Marvel plenty of time, longer than any one movie, to get Deadpool integrated in the MCU.

The rumour that they may introduce the character in a third Spider-Man movie is confirmation that Tom does have a three-picture contract with Marvel and that the Marvel-Sony deal will continue as normal.

MCU Cosmic reports this wouldn’t actually be that shocking because Marvel Comics actually published a Spider-Man/Deadpool on-going comic and it was very popular. The two characters reportedly have great chemistry, so that could work very well.

This could be the superhero/buddy cop movie we never knew we needed!
