As the only one of Marvel Studios’ projects that hit pause during the strikes to resume production, the untitled Deadpool threequel had all eyes on it when cameras began to roll again in England. That meant–much to star Ryan Reynolds’ dismay–that quite a few incredibly spoilery set photos made their way online in early December. Those newest photos are in addition to some from July that revealed not only Reynolds‘ new costume for the film but also Hugh Jackman‘s incredible Wolverine costume which is the comic-accurate look fans have been pining for over the last 20 years. Now, as production on the film likely draws near to its end, Reynolds has shared the best look yet at the new look the Merc with a Mouth will be sporting in the film.
As part of an Instagram post and story celebrating the past year and ringing in 2024, Reynolds shared a behind-the-scenes look at Deadpool’s look in the new film and it’s one that is certainly much brighter and a little more aligned with the character’s comic book look than the ones from the previous two films.
A side-by-side-by-side comparison of the new suit with those from the 2016 and 2018 films shows not only a much brighter shade of red but also that the character will sport the iconic and comic-accurate belt buckle.
The move to comic-accurate Deadpool and Wolverine costumes for the film is interesting and opens the door to some of the rumored cameos in the film potentially featuring their own classic costumes. The Untitled Deadpool Movie is on track for a July 26th, 2024 theatrical debut.
