It looks like we have some familiar faces returning for Deadpool 3. Even while Shawn Levy is taking over directing duties and the film is set to be produced by Marvel Studios, the franchise is still continuing from its 20th Century Fox roots, as Ryan Reynolds continues to build upon what the previous two Deadpool entries set up. Now, we have the confirmation that we’ll have two familiar faces from the X-Men that were introduced in previous films.
Brianna Hildebrand is back to once again play Negasonic Teenage Warhead, the mutant we first met during her traineeship under Colossus in the first Deadpool film. She’ll be joined by Shioli Kutsuna, who played her girlfriend Yukio, a Japanese mutant. We sadly didn’t spend too much time with Yukio outside of a few scenes so it would be great if this new film will give her a bit more to do.
Reynolds, Levy, Paul Wernick, Rhett Reese, and Zeb Wells all had a hand in writing the script for the third Deadpool film. We’re seeing Marvel Studios return to some old habits of adapting its various projects with the help of a variety of writers to help bring the script together. It’ll be produced by Kevin Feige and while plot details are still tightly kept under wraps, we do know that we have a few franchise veterans returning, such as Rob Delaney, Morena Baccarin, Karan Soni, Leslie Uggams, and Stefan Kapicic.
