In the modern era of the entertainment industry, new content is being produced at an alarmingly steadfast rate that has completely redefined entertainment as we know it. With the inception of streaming production studios are more capable of producing and distributing content than ever before, and the result of this is countless hours of content that consumers can enjoy for years to come. One type of content in particular was performed exceptionally well over the past decade as consumers have adapted to the newfound version of Hollywood in superhero projects, with more big-budget action-packed films and series revolving around individuals with extraordinary powers. Now we have the latest update on quite possibly the most highly anticipated superhero project on the horizon with Deadpool 3 inching closer and closer each passing day.
We discussed Deadpool 3 last week when Ryan Reynolds and Shawn Levy, the franchise’s star and director, were interviewed about their latest movie The Adam Project. It was the moment when Reynolds touched upon the future of the Deadpool franchise that fans were most focused on though, seemingly alluding to the third installment but not with any guarantees. Things changed this week however when the actor took to Twitter to use a poster featuring all the characters he has played under Levy’s direction, the third being from the film Free Guy, to announce that Levy would unsurprisingly be making the return to direct Deadpool 3. This gave Levy the green-light to subsequently comment on the project, which he also opted to do on Twitter and quoted Collider’s Steven Weintraub to essentially confirm that, given his busy schedule, Deadpool 3 won’t begin filming until next year. Reynolds’ tweet can be seen above and Levy’s below, and fans will just have to continue to remain patient as further details about the film continue to emerge.
While eager fans won’t necessarily be excited to hear this news, there has to be some comfort in knowing the dynamic duo of Reynolds & Levy will be joining forces once again for the next installment of Deadpool and that both have the project in the back of their minds at the very least. Said fans have been incredibly patient already though, having waited nearly four years now since the release of Deadpool 2 in 2018. It’s more than likely that Reynolds is ready to reward them for their patience once he does get to work on Deadpool 3, and you can check back here to eventually find out when he does.
