While the WGA has successfully negotiated their deal, fans eagerly await the studios to reach an agreement with SAG-AFTRA. As the delays persist, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds come together once more with Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy for an indulgent meal.
The ongoing strike by SAG-AFTRA prohibits actors from participating in or promoting any upcoming or currently released projects, including Deadpool 3. This has left fans yearning for a glimpse of the Merc with a Mouth, especially since set photos had just started to surface before the strike began. While the strike continues, fans receive a small consolation as Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and director Shawn Levy reunite while they await the resumption of shooting.
Notably, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds were both seen sporting beards during their dinner meeting with director Shawn Levy. Although it might be an instance of this journalist reading too much into a single image, it could suggest the possibility of a temporal leap within Deadpool 3, hinting at the characters finding themselves marooned in a distant location (maybe even Battleworld for Secret Wars). We eagerly anticipate the studios reaching an agreement with SAG-AFTRA soon, providing fans with answers sooner rather than later.
Who else is attached to the Deadpool threequel?
Shawn Levy has been tapped to helm Deadpool 3, following his collaborations with Ryan Reynolds on Free Guy and The Adam Project. This forthcoming venture under the Marvel Studios banner also signifies a reunion between Levy and Hugh Jackman, who previously collaborated on the film Real Steel.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the talented writers behind the first two entries in the Deadpool series, are currently in the process of crafting the script for Deadpool 3. Additionally, the Molyneux sisters contributed to an earlier version of the project’s screenplay.
The release date for Deadpool 3 is set for November 8, 2024, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future. Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay updated with additional content!
