The next adventure of the mercenary with a mouth will have the baton of a familiar face; at least, known to the actor behind the mask. shawn levywho has just directed the famous Ryan Reynolds in two consecutive films, is in negotiations to also take the reins of Dead Pool 3. Before, filmmaker and actor collaborated to raise the successful comedy FreeGuy and science fiction movie the adam projectwhich this week arrived at the Netflix catalog.
The signing of Shawn Levy for Dead Pool 3 was made known by The Hollywood Reporter. If made official, Levy would be the third director to pour his vision into the irreverent film saga. the first tape dead pool (2016) boasted Tim Miller in the directing chair. For its sequel, Dead Pool 2 (2018), David Leitch entered as a relief. And let’s remember that in those days, the brand was owned by 20th Century Fox, before being acquired by Disney and finally becoming 20th Century Studios.
Now, everything indicates that the third installment will be commanded by Marvel Studios. The president of the company, Kevin Feige, confirmed in January 2021 that Deadpool will be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, without losing the adult classification that characterized the previous films, according to the executive.
On Dead Pool 3, Ryan Reynolds will obviously be back in the role of the violent but endearing antihero. On the other hand, it remains to be seen if we will indeed see the mercenary again until his third film is released. The doubt is valid because, in a daring move, perhaps the House of Ideas decides to put Deadpool before – as a cameo – in some other MCU title. Which of the two options will Marvel choose?
“I think both situations are pretty much guaranteed,” Reynolds responded about it, in a 2021 interview (via). “I think you’re always going to ‘zig’ when everyone expects you to, when it comes to that character. As long as Disney is open to doing something pretty divergent or having some wildly divergent uses of Deadpool, then it’s time to have some fun. I think everything is great.”
simon kinbergproducer of the tapes dead pool previous ones, will occupy that same position in the closing of the trilogy. As writers of the project, the credits go to Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux (Bob’s Burgers).
for now, Dead Pool 3 does not presume a tentative release date. Outside of Ryan Reynolds, there is no other talent secured within the cast yet.
The entry Shawn Levy (Free Guy) is on his way to direct Deadpool 3 was published first in Cinema PREMIERE.
