Deadpool 3 looks set to be the movie which puts the MCU, and the Multiverse Saga, back on the right track. We've heard it will lead directly into the next Avengers movies, making it an incredibly important chapter in this era of storytelling.
Beyond that, it's also Marvel Studios' first R-Rated movie and the long-awaited Deadpool threequel which will see Hugh Jackman play Wolverine - in a comic-accurate costume - for the first time since he stepped down from the role in 2017's Logan.
Now, it appears work is finally close to resuming on Deadpool 3 in the UK.
It started with Jackman sharing an impressive workout video making it clear that, now the SAG-AFTRA strike is over, he's wasting no time getting back into Wolverine shape for his MCU debut.
Yesterday evening, the actor revealed he'd met with director Shawn Levy for an "important production meeting." While we're guessing the two friends and longtime collaborators were simply catching up, there's a good chance at least a few changes were made to Deadpool 3 after the WGA strike concluded which needed to be discussed.
Now, Jackman has shared yet another update, this time confirming he's back in London and preparing to resume shooting imminently. There have been rumblings in recent days that cameras are going to start rolling again before Thanksgiving, so this bodes well for Marvel Studios' only 2024 movie.
Whether we're getting more set photos remains to be seen, though it's certainly possible after both Reynolds and Jackman were spotted suited up as Deadpool and Wolverine in a location which appeared to be doubling for The Void earlier this year.
Alongside Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, Deadpool franchise vets Karan Soni (Dopinder), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Shioli Kutsuna (Yukio), and Rob Delaney (Peter) are all set to return in this threequel.
Emma Corrin is expected to play Cassandra Nova, while Matthew Macfadyen will likely take on the role of a TVA agent named Paradox. It's also been confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Liev Schreiber, James Marsden, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, singer Taylor Swift (potentially as Dazzler), and even Loki's Owen Wilson expected to appear.
Deadpool 3 is set to be released in theaters on July 26, 2024. As a bonus, here's a little something for the F1 fans among you...
