The ongoing strike by the Writers Guild of America has already caused significant disruption in the industry. Now, the Screen Actors Guild has also joined the WGA, further intensifying the impact. Hollywood is now beginning to experience the ripple effects of these strikes. Unfortunately, Deadpool 3 is one of the productions that has come to a halt due to the ongoing strike.

Both screenwriters and actors have been engaged in a battle against technology. Screenwriters express concerns that artificial intelligence (AI) could potentially be used to write scripts, diminishing their value and impacting their work opportunities. Similarly, actors fear that AI-generated replicas could undermine their earnings and work prospects. In a recent display of solidarity, the cast of Oppenheimer walked out of its premiere in support of the ongoing strike.
