Since then, Reynolds has been seen as the definitive actor for the Merc with a Mouth and reprized his role in the sequel Deadpool 2.
Following Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox, fans and audiences alike rejoiced at the prospect of finally seeing the characters X-Men and Fantastic Four interact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So far, the biggest Fox-delivered addition to the MCU’s upcoming lineup is: Deadpool 3.

Deadpool 3 is currently slated for a November 2024 release.
Reynolds now giving SiriusXM an update on where? Deadpool 3 is in the script stage and when filming begins. The film has been in development for years, sparking a lot of interest as to when it will go into production. While filming isn’t imminent, Reynolds sounds optimistic about Deadpool 3the timeline. He says:
Yeah, like I don’t take it for granted. I get to work on that film with not one, but two of my best friends in Shawn Levy and Hugh Jackman. And we are, literally, up to our necks in preparation and still writing. I mean, the writing process of ‘Deadpool’ movies doesn’t really stop until they take the movie from us. Literally, like they have to rip the mic out of my hand in the editing room… Production should start, hopefully sometime before the summer. But the shooting is the short, easier part. Then it is the run-up, the preparation, the writing. The shots quickly, then you have the editing process. That’s where the film is really made, the editing room.
Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 script update shouldn’t interest fans
Reynolds has had big plans for Deadpool for years and is known for dropping numerous teases throughout his career. Since the test footage of Reynolds as Deadpool leaked and sparked interest in the film, the actor has not watered down his love for the character, skillfully portraying him in the comics as accurately as possible. Initially, Reynolds was limited to how much he could play with the character, but now it’s clear that he’s very involved in where Deadpool is going. While some may be concerned that Deadpool 3 is still being written, Reynolds’ update is actually a positive sign.
With only a few months to go before filming begins, it’s really not that surprising that the script is still being worked on. This process takes time and Reynolds seems very comfortable about where it’s going right now. The fact that he is so determined to get the story right is actually a very positive sign for the highly anticipated film. Viewers can rest easy knowing that with the reliable team of Reynolds, Feige and Levy, Deadpool 3 will be great when it finally hits theaters.
