• The death of a stuntwoman on "Deadpool 2" set was ruled as "accidental"
  • Government agency WorkSafeBC said there was a “series of safety errors” on set
  • "Deadpool" creator shaded Disney for lack of progress being made on the third installment

The death of a stuntwoman while filming “Deadpool 2” was ruled as an accident.

In 2017, a stuntwoman died on the set of “Deadpool 2” in Vancouver. The woman identified as Joi “SJ” Harris lost control of a bike while jumping a curb and crashed into a building. The stunt that went wrong led to Harris’ death, BBC reported.

According to local media, she had successfully practiced the stunt several times before the accident. Harris was filming a scene for Zazie Beets, who played the female character Domino in the movie.

Three years later, the BC Coroners Service ruled Harris’ death as accidental, per Global News. It stated that she died of “blunt force traumatic head injuries after being ejected from the bike.”

Harris was not wearing a helmet at the time which contributed to the severity of the accident that caused her death. The Coroner Service also stated that it won’t be “making further recommendations” regarding the issue.

An investigation by government agency WorkSafeBC was made following Harris’ death. According to a separate report from the BBC, the investigators attributed the fatal motorcycle accident to a “series of safety errors” on set. This included failing to ensure that Harris was wearing a helmet.

The report said that Fox “failed to conduct a risk assessment addressing safety controls, speed of the motorcycle, and equipment limitations.”

The studio also failed to provide “adequate supervision” because Harris was not wearing safety headgear before the stunt.

20th Century Fox “respectfully disagree[d]” with the report’s finding. The studio released a statement explaining how they kept everyone on set safe.

“Safety is our top priority, and while we respectfully disagree with some of the report's findings, Fox thoroughly reviewed its stunt safety protocols immediately following the tragic accident and has revised and implemented enhanced safety procedures and enforcement,” the statement read.

In related news, “Deadpool” creator Rob Liefeld shaded Disney by posting a dead Mickey Mouse art in his Instagram Story last month. Many were convinced that the controversial post reflected his disappointment over the lack of progress being made on “Deadpool 3.”

According to Liefeld, Marvel Studios has no plans to make another “Deadpool” movies. Disney/MCU now owns the rights of the film following its purchase of the 20th Century Fox’s entertainment asset last year.

Ryan Reynolds will be one of the many nominees at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards for his work in “Deadpool.” Official Deadpool Facebook Page
