Is there a Deadpool 3 release date?

Deadpool 3 will be released on November 8, 2024. It was originally planned for September 6, but it received a short delay as a result of Blade being shifted into the earlier slot.

This means Deadpool 3 will be one of the first movies in Phase Six of the MCU.

Speaking to SiriusXM recently, Ryan Reynolds gave an update on Deadpool 3. “We are, quite literally, up to our necks right now in prep and still writing,” he said.

“I mean the writing process on Deadpool movies doesn’t really end until they take the movie away from us. Literally, like they have to snatch the microphone out of my hand in the edit room.

“Production should start, hopefully sometime just before summer. But the shooting is the short, easier part. Then it’s the lead-up, the prep, the writing. The shooting’s quick, then you have the edit process. That’s where the movie gets really made is the edit room.”

It wouldn’t be a Deadpool film without the titular anti-hero himself. As well as reprising his role as Deadpool for the third film, Ryan Reynolds is also actively working on the script.

In addition to Reynolds, Morena Baccarin is confirmed to be returning from the first two Deadpool movies as Wade Wilson’s wife Vanessa.

But Vanessa isn’t the only returning character from the first two movies, as both Karan Soni and Leslie Uggams have been confirmed to return as Dopinder and Blind Al from the first two Deadpool movies. Stefan Kapicic will also be returning as Colossus, as will Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, according to Deadline.

The outlet separately confirmed that another fan-favorite is returning from Deadpool 2. Rob Delaney is confirmed to be returning as X-Force member Peter.

But here’s the big news: Hugh Jackman is officially returning as Wolverine. By the time the film hits cinemas, it’ll have been seven years since Logan, which many assumed would be his final appearance.

Other potential characters to return are Cable (Josh Brolin), Domino (Zazie Beetz) as well as any of the surviving X-Force members. However, the movie could bring in some new characters – namely some X-Men folks – now that the universes have the potential to be properly connected.

In addition, Marvel insider Daniel Richtman has reported that Mobius (Owen Wilson) will have a “big role” in Deadpool 3, which would make sense as this movie is likely about traveling across the multiverse. However, it could also be a big signal for Cable’s appearance, as he has long been an enemy of the TVA.

One notable confirmed addition to the ensemble is The Crown’s Emma Corrin, who has just been cast in an undisclosed role.

Despite several rumors, though, Deadline reporter Justin Kroll has stated that the mystery role Corrin is playing will not be the villain Danger, aka the sentient manifestation of the X-Men’s Danger Room.

On March 28, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Succession actor Matthew Macfadyen has also joined the cast of Deadpool 3. It is currently unknown what role he might be playing.

Deadpool 3 plot: What will the film be about?

According to Reynolds, the sequel could see the character and plot take a completely new direction. The actor has teased that the threequel is “looking to go in a completely different direction”, adding “often they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late.”

With time-travel a central part of Deadpool 2, the third film could lean into this element even more and could even use it as a way to effortlessly introduce the character to the greater MCU.
