The 'Deadpool' actor jokingly cautions that he will teach his and Blake Lively's eldest daughter James how to dress up in solidarity with striking actors during the spooky festivities.

AceShowbiz - Ryan Reynolds has reacted to SAG-AFTRA strict Halloween costume guidelines for striking actors. Planning to honor the rules, the Canadian-born hunk has publicly declared that he will not excuse anyone in his household, not even his young kids, for breaking them.

In response to the guidelines issued on Thursday, October 19, the Wade Wilson a.k.a. Deadpool depicter jokingly cautioned that he will teach his eldest daughter with Blake Lively, 8-year-old James, how to dress up in solidarity with striking actors during the spooky festivities. He wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, "I look forward to screaming 'scab' at my 8 year old all night. She's not in the union but she needs to learn."

Ryan Reynolds' Tweet

Ryan Reynolds reacted to SAG-AFTRA Halloween costume guidelines.

According to the guidelines issued by SAG-AFTRA in a website post, striking actors are banned from dressing up as popular characters from struck content and then posting the images on social media. That means fans will not see some well-known stars wearing costumes inspired by such hit movies as "Barbie" and popular TV shows like "Wednesday".

Instead, the union encourages members to "choose costumes inspired by generalized characters and figures - ghost, zombie, spider, etc." However, members can dress up as characters from non-struck content like an animated TV show.

Marvel superheroes, meanwhile, are not allowed despite being based on comic book characters, because they're owned by Disney. The post continued to send a message to the guild's members, "Let's use our collective power to send a loud and clear message to our struck employers that we will not promote their content without a fair contract!"

The SAG-AFTRA strike is nearing its 100th day after talks broke off with studios on Saturday, October 14 without a deal. In a Thursday Instagram post, the union asked striking actors to withstand the fight. "Just as the WGA weathered the storm, so shall we," the statement read. "Let's draw strength from one another and trust that our unity will lead us to the contract we deserve. One day longer. One day stronger. As long as it takes."
