Hot off 20th Century Studios’ Free Guy and the release of The Adam Project on Netflix, director Shawn Levy is reteaming with Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool 3.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Levy is in final negotiations to direct the third film in the franchise, and the first to ve developed by Marvel Studios.
Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux, who are most known for their work on Bob’s Burgers, wrote Deadpool 3, which Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige confirmed would be rated R.
Currently, it’s unclear if the film will follow the continuity – or at least have the main character remember the continuity – from the first two films, or if this will be a soft reboot of sorts. Could the upcoming Multiverse arc be used as a way to shoehorn him in? Or was he always there? With a meta character like Deadpool, the possibilities are endless.
With a massive slate of projects already in the works and Marvel’s extremely packed production schedule, it looks like the earliest fans could see the film is sometime in 2023. There’s always a possibility that could change though.
