  Pirates CF Bryan Reynolds expects to return from IL Monday or Tuesday against Cubs While the Pirates find themselves 16 games under .500 after the All-Star break, they may soon get a boost with the return of starting centerfielder Bryan Reynolds. The 27-year-old has been on the injured list since July 11 with a right oblique strain. On Sunday, Reynolds told Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Gazette that he plans to return during the Pirates' upcoming series against the Chicago Cubs, either on Monday or Tuesday. Bryan Reynolds told me he expects to return for the Cubs series. “That’s the goal,” Reynolds said. Side had been bothering him for a few series. Tried to play through it.

We’ve all been waiting and waiting for Deadpool 3 to come to fruition.

After hinting that production and filming would start in the summer of 2022 (the time we’re in now!) last year, it appears that Ryan Reynolds and company are getting down to business and making the third film a long-awaited reality.

Of course, with all that waiting coming to an end, the time for more jokes begins. As a photo of Reynolds working with his personal trainer Dan Saladino was posted with the caption “and so it begins” showing Reynolds aiming to be at his superhero best again, we needed his alter ego to chime in, in the best way possible.

No more waiting; just jokes about shake weighting!

The Deadpool official Twitter account wasted no time poking fun at the man playing the titular character.

The joke plays off of multiple Deadpool and Reynolds jokes, referencing both in-film humor and some social media back from the second movie’s filming.

Recall that in the original Deadpool, when Reynolds’ Wade Wilson is being recruited to the program that ultimately ends with him gaining his superpowers that lead to him becoming Deadpool, he makes a Shake Weight joke.

When the recruiter makes his pitch, saying, “Mr. Wilson, you’ve recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. What if I told you we can cure you and give you abilities most men only dream of?”

To which Wilson replies, “Well, I’d say you sound like an infomercial, but not a good one like Slapchop, more Shake Weighty.”

He didn't owe anyone anything and he seems content with his decision, rarely appearing in public since then. Nobody should ever blame him for walking away. But the Colts are still trying to figure things out in the aftermath (which was so big, The Athletic just produced a podcast series on his career and retirement). It was a moment that changed the franchise's history. The trajectory was clearly pointing up at the time.

Then, during filming of Deadpool 2, when Josh Brolin (who plays Cable) was spotted holding a miniature Deadpool doll, Reynolds, invoking the humor of his character, Tweeted a joke about Shake Weight once again, saying that Brolin likes to call him his “lil’ Shake Weight.”

This all comes on the heels of both Deadpool movies making their way to streaming on Disney Plus, which, along with Logan, are the first R-rated movies to hit the Mouse House’s streaming network.

And right in stride, Reynolds, perfectly bouncing back and forth between being a promotional maestro, himself, and his alter ego Deadpool, also Tweeted out about the movies hitting Disney Plus as the first R-rated movies there.

For those out there who may somehow not be familiar with Shake Weight, and it’s glorious commercial and infomercial campaigns, which lead to jokes around the world (including a hysterical South Park episode), check out this video below and try not to giggle and make jokes.

There’s currently no release date or window for Deadpool 3, and considering that production has only just kicked off, we probably won’t be privy to one for a while.

Actors don't tend to speak openly about their favorite roles, probably for fear of upsetting the creative geniuses they've worked with or messing up any other opportunities they could get. Despite that, a few A-listers have been brave enough to spill the beans and discuss the best characters they've ever played. Some are expected, but others come as a total shock.
