Deadpool fans will not be seeing the character Weasel in the next "Deadpool" film. T.J. Miller has said that he will not be reprising his role in the hit franchise. According to Screen Rant, his future with the franchise had been in doubt since 2017. In 2017, Miller faced accusations of allegedly sexually assaulting a woman [VIDEO] and this year, he was arrested for calling in a fake bomb threat on a train.

Miller was a strong actor for the Deadpool franchise and had great chemistry with Ryan Reynolds.

However, the increasing number of personal issues had made it difficult for the studio and filmmakers to keep around. The studio has already begun working at erasing Weasel's presence from the Deadpool property.

Screenrant previously reported that Miller's role in "Deadpool 2" was severely altered. Miller was expected to have a larger role in the film, but his character stayed on as a minor character and was even turned into somewhat of a bad guy.

T.J. Miller was hoping for some kind of team up

Last year, Miller teased a possible team up for Weasel and Dopinder. By the end of the sequel, it's clear that Dopinder will continue on with the series, and Weasel will be forced to be a memory. The change came as a woman came out and publicly accused Miller of punching and choking her during an encounter in 2001. Miller denied the accusations, but he continued to become tangled up in this scandal, forcing Fox to minimize his work in "Deadpool 2."

"Deadpool 2" was in final editing by the time the news broke. Fox producer Lauren Donner said they would not recast Miller, but instead managed to decrease his character's role via reshoots that lasted three months.

Fox learned from Ridley Scott, that it's never too late to recast a scandal-plagued director. Scott was forced to replace Kevin Spacey in "All The Money In The World," with Christopher Plummer, despite the movie ready for release.

Decision to shorten T.J. Miller's presence in film fell to writer's group

It appears the decision to minimize T.J. Miller's character's presence in the film was a result from writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and Ryan Reynolds talks. The plans for the X-Force film is still in question, but it's clear that T.J. Miller will not be joining the team, especially after calling in a fake bomb threat on a train. Reynolds even confirmed that Miller will not be in the X-Force offshoot.

Fox clearly wants to avoid the negative press, so not keeping Miller is a wise move. It's also hard to prove Weasel was a key part of the film franchise. With Weasel as a minor character, it's easy for Deadpool to explain is removal through a quick line of dialogue.
