Deadpool 3 has a release date, and there’s something even more exciting in the works for Marvel fans.
In late September 2022, Ryan Reynolds made the unexpected announcement that Hugh Jackman would reprise his role as Wolverine in the threequel. It will not only be Wolverine’s MCU debut, but also Jackman’s return after his ostensibly final appearance in Logan.
Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin of Bob’s Burgers were originally announced as the writers for the threequel. However, it appears that the third film will be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the first two films.
Shawn Levy will direct, reuniting with Reynolds for their third film together after Free Guy and The Adam Project.
So when is Deadpool 3 coming out?
As previously stated, Deadpool 3 will be released in theatres on September 6, 2024.
In MCU terms, this means that the threequel is either the final instalment of Phase 5 or the first instalment of Phase 6. The latter is more likely, as Marvel did set an Autumn 2024 release date in Phase 6 for an untitled film or television show.
Even though we now have a release date, we don’t know when the film will begin production, but we’d guess it’ll be in 2023 to ensure a September 2024 release. However, there is always the possibility of delays.
