DEADPOOL 3 Director Briefly Teases the Upcoming Threequel

director Shawn Levy was recently on the Happy Sad Confused Podcast and breifly teased a few things about the upcoming movie.

"What blew my mind is how easy some of those cameos have been. People love Deadpool. People love Ryan [Reynolds]. Thankfully, people also seem to like my work. They know that Ryan and I are in a groove of creative brotherhood that is unique and seems to be working.

"So, yeah, I love that there's been a proliferation of casting rumors around my movie because there's so many that it's impossible to know what's real and what's made-up. So, all I'll say is that starting with Ryan and Hug, some that the world knows about: Matthew McFadyen, Emma Corrin, really just going to work is a delight."

Regarding emotional moments in the movie...

"I'm gonna say this: f**kload more than you think. I'm so wary, but one thing Ryan and I were very really united in was wanting to make Deadpool 3 very much consistent and continuous with the franchise DNA, but to see where we could evolve in this third movie.

"Once we knew it was a Wolverine/Deadpool movie, my god! What a gift to any storyteller. Because not only do you have two icon actors playing their most iconic roles, but you have two characters whose dynamic is already famously fraught. And anytime you're dealing with characters who start from a place of deep dislike and conflict and difference from each other... the mouth [Deadpool], and the like surly laconic man of few words [Wolverine], what a great formula for storytelling. And ultimately the movie does have much more character, depth, and heart than I think anyone is expecting."

With the actor's strike still ongoing there is no word yet on if DEADPOOL 3 will have a release delay, although there's already rumors it could get pushed back into the middle of summer 2024.
