Deadpool 3 is not only one of the most anticipated movies in the MCU but also in the careers of Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern) and Hugh Jackmann (X-Men). This time, we will see the iconic Marvel character either teaming up with or facing off against Wolverine for the first time.
Shawn Levy took on the directorial duties for Deadpool & Wolverine, working from a script penned by the Molyneux sisters, Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux. This marked a significant change as Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were in charge previously.
The first teaser had a unique premiere during Super Bowl LVII, which featured the NFL final between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs. It was confirmed that the third installment would hit theaters in July of this year, so there are only a few months to wait.
When will Deadpool & Wolverine be released?
The third installment of the movie led by Ryan Reynolds not only has a release date but also confirmed its official title during the Super Bowl 2024, and it’s none other than “Deadpool & Wolverine“.
Yes, the crossover will hit the big screen on Friday, July 27, 2024. So, there are only a few months left to discover the continuation and conclusion of the comedic story that has captivated hundreds of MCU fans.
Although Disney tends to produce more family-friendly movies, it was announced that the new film would maintain its R rating (for ages 17 and up in the United States), allowing the franchise to stay true to the tone and style of the character.
The acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney, the owner of Marvel Studios, allowed X-Men characters, including Deadpool, to integrate into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this installment, fulfilling what fans have been asking for for years.
The main cast will be led by Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, who will once again portray Wolverine. The story will feature several interesting additions: Emma Corrin will play the villain, Rob Delaney as Peter, Leslie Uggams as Blind AI, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Matthew Macfadyen as Paradox and Morena Baccarin as Vanessa.
