After taking some time to get the pieces in place for it, Deadpool 3 now seems to be making steady progress. Hugh Jackman agreed to return to the role of Wolverine, which he believed he’d left behind with 2017’s Logan, and the film was finally put on the Marvel Studios slate with a release date of November 8, 2024. Obviously, that means production on the film must be getting underway at some point in 2023 and in a recent interview, star Ryan Reynolds gave a little clarity to when that should be.
In an interview with Sirius XM’s Stars, Reynolds explained that he, Jackman and director Shawn Levy are “up to our necks in prep” and that the film is still being written, and that he will be wrapped up in production on it for the next two years. The actor then added that shooting on the film, which he called “the easy part”, is expected to take place “just before Summer.”
Reynolds also noted that he only fully revealed the film’s plot to Jackman after he’d agreed to return, adding he can’t wait to “unleash” the movie to audiences. Though there have been no details released about what to expect from the threequel, plenty of theories have made their way around, including one that ponders the idea of the film adapting the Marvel Comics’ miniseries Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe.
