Is ‘Deadpool 3’ remaining a top priority for Marvel Studios to maintain the release date?

Hey there, Marvel fans! As we eagerly await the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike, there’s been plenty of concern about whether our beloved films and series will face delays. But fear not! It seems like we may still get to enjoy the much-anticipated release of Deadpool 3, as Marvel Studios has made it a “top priority” to stick to its original release date.

Once the strike finally comes to an end, all the studios will be racing to resume filming, aiming to avoid those costly delays. And while each company has its own set of priorities, Marvel Studios is putting Deadpool 3 at the top of its list. And why not? After all, who wouldn’t want to see Ryan Reynolds make his grand debut in the MCU alongside the iconic Hugh Jackman as Wolverine?

It’s hardly surprising that Marvel Studios has chosen to prioritize Deadpool 3 over other projects like Thunderbolts. May is a primo slot for any movie release, and losing it would undoubtedly have an impact on the box office success of what promises to be one of the biggest MCU films in recent years. Plus, let’s not forget about the hefty paychecks for both Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, as well as the delays caused by the strikes. Ensuring a favorable release date might just be one of the few ways Marvel Studios can recoup their costs.

Who Else is Involved in the Deadpool Threequel?

Now, let’s talk about the talented folks working behind the scenes on Deadpool 3. Leading the charge as director is none other than Shawn Levy, known for his collaboration with Ryan Reynolds on films like Free Guy and The Adam Project. And here’s an exciting reunion for you: Levy is teaming up with Hugh Jackman once again, having previously worked together on the awesome Real Steel.

When it comes to the script, we’ve got an accomplished duo at the helm. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the brilliant minds behind the first two Deadpool installments, are hard at work developing the script for Deadpool 3. And let’s not forget the contributions of the Molyneux sisters, who have also put their touch on a previous draft of the project.

So mark your calendars, folks! Deadpool 3 is currently slated to hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
