Despite the ongoing Hollywood writers’ strike, Deadpool 3 has begun shóóting. Marvel has given a revised release date for the movie, so it appears that it will hit theaters earlier than we initially anticipated. If the idea of Deadpool being in the MCU wasn’t intriguing enough, we also know that Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine in the third film.
Naturally, Reynolds and Jackman have enjoyed making fun of one another over the official title of the threequel. Morena Baccarin, who plays Vanessa, and Stefan Kapii, who plays Colossus, are the newest cast members to be confirmed to return.
The two, however, are by no means the only intriguing cast additions for the threequel, as we explain below. Initially, it was revealed that Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, writers for Bob’s Burgers, had been tapped to pen the screenplay.
However, it now appears that the writers of the first two movies, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, are also writing the third movie. Here is everything you need to know about Deadpool and Wolverine’s MCU debuts…
When Will Deadpool 3 Be Released?
Deadpool 3 now has a new release date of May 3, 2024, following various alterations. Deadpool 3 was first slated to open in theaters on September 6, 2024, however, that date was later pushed back to November 8 and then abruptly moved up six months.
Speaking to SiriusXM recently, Ryan Reynolds gave an update on Deadpool 3. He said:
“We are, quite literally, up to our necks right now in prep and still writing, 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.”
That sets the movie in Phase 5 of the MCU, just before Captain America 4’s (now-retitled Captain America: Brave New World) summer release. It appears that Shawn Levy, who is directing Reynolds in his third picture with him following Free Guy and The Adam Project, was correct when he said in December 2022 that production would begin “on or about” May 2023.
Colossus actor Stefan Kapii, who is returning to the character, announced on May 2023 via Instagram Stories (via ComicBook) that filming has already begun. However, it remains to see if the writers’ strike will have some effect in the next few weeks.
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:
“looking to go in a completely different direction, often they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late.”
Given that time travel played a major role in Deadpool 2, the third movie can capitalize on it even more. It might even use it to subtly introduce the character to the larger MCU.
It’s likely that Deadpool will focus on the characters’ meta-transition from 20th Century Fox to the MCU based on the character cameos from X-Men and the set scenes. Deadpool and Wolverine will probably engage in combat at some time as well.

Many fans think the film will be a loose copy of the ‘Deadpool Kἰlls the Marvel Universe’ plot, with Owen Wilson’s Mobius and the TVA pursuing the antihero through several realities as he causes all sorts of vἰolent mayhem.

Is Deadpool now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
It is true that Deadpool will make his MCU debut in Deadpool 3. Deadpool was initially introduced as a member of the stand-alone X-Men films, but recent remarks from Marvel CEO Kevin Feige indicate that he will join the MCU in his third feature.
Recasting the part of Deadpool would be asking for trouble because the character is still quite popular, whereas the other X-Men characters are anticipated to undergo a total reset in the wake of Dark Phoenix’s failure.
Additionally, because the character enjoys meta-humor so much, it would be simple for him to brush off any continuity mistakes with an amusing quip directed directly at the camera.
