Shawn Levy, the director of the upcoming movie "Deadpool 3," has confirmed that production on the film will begin next spring. The movie, which will see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as Wade Wilson, will also feature Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
The film is expected to be a journey across the multiverse and will be released just under two years from now. In a recent interview with Collider, Levy said that the movie will be "digitally CG-heavy" and will therefore require a longer time in post-production.
However, he emphasized that the team's priority is to maintain the raw, gritty style of the previous "Deadpool" movies. "On or about. Yep," Levy told Collider in May. "The truth is the more digitally CG-heavy a movie is, the longer time you need in post.
But obviously it's the first Deadpool movie in the MCU. There's going to be no lack of visual effects. But it's also a North Star priority for Ryan and I to keep Deadpool raw, gritty, grounded in the ways that those movies have been and that all of us love." Fans of the "Deadpool" franchise have been eagerly anticipating the release of "Deadpool 3," which will mark the character's debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The previous two "Deadpool" movies, released in 2016 and 2018, were critically acclaimed and grossed over $1.5 billion at the box office.
It is not yet clear what the plot of "Deadpool 3" will be, but fans can expect to see the character's signature humor and action-packed fight scenes.
The addition of Wolverine to the cast is sure to add an extra layer of excitement to the movie, as the two characters have a long history of rivalry and friendship in the comics. "We are writing, rewriting, developing, prepping 'Deadpool' every day now.
It is such a blast to laugh every day. It is so delicious to hear and write and come up with these scenes where people are just talking foul. And the violence is in your face and hardcore, and it's very much a 'Deadpool' movie.
And it has Logan in it. And it has Wolverine in it. It's too fun," he added. "I'm having so much fun, and I haven't even hit the shooting floor yet. [...] I have to say, developing a 'Deadpool' movie is one of the most fun creative experiences of my life because it's not just that it's rated R.
It's that it's so filled with self-awareness, and that makes in-writing very, very fun in a way that is unique to that franchise." Levy and Reynolds have previously worked together on the hit movies "Free Guy" and "The Adam Project," so fans can expect a dynamic collaboration between the two on "Deadpool 3." With production set to begin next spring, fans can expect more updates and details about the movie to be released in the coming months.
