DEADPOOL 3: Is FREE GUY Director Shawn Levy Teasing Taking The Helm Of The Marvel Studios Threequel?

The script for Deadpool 3 is being worked on, but there's no word on a director. However, Free Guy helmer and Stranger Things producer Shawn Levy has shared some very interesting comments on the movie.

Free Guy has been receiving positive reviews from critics (it currently sits at 87% on Rotten Tomatoes), so Disney will no doubt want to continue working with director Shawn Levy. 

The filmmaker has never worked on a superhero movie, but his credits include Night at the Museum, Real Steel, and Stranger Things. As a result, his name is often suggested for various projects by comic book fans, but could he be the one who helps bring the Merc with the Mouth into the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Talking to Inverse, the director gave an intriguing response about potentially helming Deadpool 3.

"I'm going to mostly skirt that question, which might be an answer," he said. "I'll answer the last part of it, which is: I'm a fan. I'm a fan of Deadpool, like a massive fan. And I'm a fan of the Marvel Universe and the way in which increasingly, individual filmmakers of real note can make and express with their own voice and vision through that franchise behemoth, whether it's what Taika did with Ragnarok, what Eternals is going to be, what James Gunn did with Guardians."

"These are real films that also happen to be Marvel movies," Levy continued. "So, for the right title - because I only raised my hand on stuff where I know what to do with that, and there's a few where I feel I know what to do with that. So we'll see."

Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin are penning the screenplay for Deadpool 3 alongside Ryan Reynolds, and it's hard to believe Marvel Studios doesn't at least have someone in mind to direct by now. Levy would arguably be a good fit, and given how well Free Guy reportedly handles its cameos, he might just be the perfect person to bring Wade Wilson into the MCU.
