There has been much speculation regarding a third Deadpool film, and Ryan Reynolds has officially confirmed the news.
The franchise’s actor/writer/producer has announced the upcoming film’s release date of September 6, 2024, and disclosed that Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine in the film via a video posted to his social media accounts.
It’s surprising that the actor would even contemplate coming back after hanging up his claws following 2017’s Logan, but he apparently gave it some thought. Perhaps the idea of making a significant contribution to the Marvel Cinematic Universe swayed him.
The video begins with Reynolds saying, “We’re incredibly disappointed to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for, uh, a good long while.” “Regarding this matter, I’ve had to go deep within myself.
The significance of his debut appearance in the MCU demands that it be treated as such. It’s important that we maintain the integrity of the character while also giving them fresh layers of complexity and significance.
The key to becoming a successful Deadpool is making yourself noticeable. It’s been a tremendous test that’s required me to go deep within myself… And…I am completely destitute. It’s totally deserted up here, man. and quite scary. But we did have one plan in mind.”
Marvel Studios has officially confirmed Deadpool 3, however, the film has yet to receive a release date.
Following Comic-Con, some fans began hoping that the third film could be released on the 16th of February, Phase 5. It’s possible that Disney may cancel the release of the “untitled Marvel movie” scheduled for that day.
Changes with the threequel’s writers may be to blame for the lack of an official release date. No one knows if Reese and Wernick are working from scratch or if they are just reworking the old script.
After speculating that production could begin in 2022, Reynolds announced in October 2021 that he would be taking a sabbatical from acting. It’s seeming less probable that the film will be released in theatres by 2023.
Theoretically, Deadpool 3 could come out in February 2024, but if not, we’ll have to wait until one of the empty slots in Phase 6. Depending on how things pan out, we might have to wait until 2025.
ABOUT DEADPOOL 3
The logo for the film then appears, also referring to the return of Wolverine. The film has been slated for release on September 6, 2024, as per the announcement.
Hugh will return as Wolverine after publicly retiring from playing the superhero in the 2017 film Logan. Deadpool 3 will be directed by Shawn Levy, who previously worked with Reynolds on The Adam Project.
Who will play Deadpool in Deadpool 3?
There is only one absolute: Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson in Deadpool 3. Since only Reynolds has announced their participation, it remains to be seen who else will be accompanying him.
His apparent appearance on the Doctor Strange 2 poster led Marvel fans to hope he might make an appearance in the film, but that never happened.
Technically, Reynolds has already made his MCU debut in an advertisement alongside Korg from Thor: Ragnarok, and his name is also mentioned in the attraction Avengers Assemble: Flight Force at the Avengers Campus theme park.
Although not all of the X-Force squad made it through Deadpool 2 alive, we did get to see Josh Brolin’s Cable and Zazie Beetz’s Domino again. However, Beetz is doubtful that she will return, having said in March 2021 that she had heard nothing regarding a job and still having heard nothing as of March 2022.
Beetz seemed to flip her tune and hint at a comeback in August of 2022: “Of course, I can’t say much more than that other than I’m grateful. I really can’t say anything or give any details at this time.”
If we do see the rest of the X-Force team again, it will most likely include Peter (Rob Delaney) and his allies Colossus (Stefan Kapii), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna), and Russell (Julian Dennison).
Fans shouldn’t put too much stock in the comeback of characters like Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) and Zeitgeist (Bill Skarsgard), but comic book heroes frequently outwit death.
According to a Tweet exchange between Reynolds and Leslie Uggams, who plays Blind Al’s roommate, it’s safe to assume that the character will be back.
Even though Morena Baccarin hasn’t confirmed anything just yet, Deadpool’s girlfriend Vanessa is a character who has already cheated death in the franchise (as long as Deadpool 2’s post-credits sequence is canon).
Fans have accused the film of “fridging” Vanessa because she doesn’t have a significant role in the sequel, but she previously defended the decision.
“I can understand that people thought so, and I certainly was unhappy that I didn’t have more to do since I simply loved the character so much,” she remarked.
“But it felt like such an emotionally essential role in the picture, and the entire arc of his character in the film is set in motion because of what happens to my character,” the actor said after seeing the film and reading the script.
Hugh Will Return as Wolverine, Ryan Confirms
Hard to keep my mouth stitched shut about this one,” Ryan tweeted. He was referring to the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which the character was introduced.
After saying, “I’ve really had to search my soul on this one,” he went on to hilariously explain why he thinks Deadpool should be added to the MCU.
When a man enters the screen while he’s joking around with us, Ryan says, “Hey Hugh, want to play Wolverine one more time?” After a pause, Jackman says, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.”
