After years of superhero movies being associated with the family market, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool brought the genre to the R-rated crowd. The outrageous fourth-wall-breaking mutant movie proved to be a huge hit with fans, critics and the box office, leading to spawning a sequel and becoming the only element of the Fox Universe to carry over to the MCU.
With the writers promising a “fish out of water” story as Wade Wilson makes the jump to the MCU, anticipation is high for Deadpool 3, especially with the creatives behind the previous films on board. The film will be directed by recent Reynolds collaborator Shawn Levy, who recently directed the actor in both Free Guy and Adam Project.
As progress continues apace on Deadpool 3 with Part 3 drawing ever closer to filming, many were expecting an official announcement from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. But even as the mcu boss took the stage to reveal phase 4, 5 and 6, deadpool 3 was absent, but the release date may have been secretly revealed.
deadpool 3 release date revealed yet?
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 was absent from Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con presentation, despite having recently signed a director, art director, and writers. Even though Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige offered no news on the Merc with the Mouth, he may have secretly announced the release date.
Prior to the panel, Marvel Studios had release dates marked for untitled films to hit theaters on November 3, 2023, as well as February 16, May 3, July 26, and November 8, 2024. .most of these spaces were full of sword, captain america: new world order, lightning bolts and the fantastic four.
February 16, 2024 was left suspiciously empty on the phase 5 roster, leading many to speculate that deadpool 3 will fill the vacant date. Of all the projects Marvel Studios has been reported to have in development, Deadpool 3 is the only one that has publicly revealed a team and is starting to prepare for filming.
Previous reports have also suggested that Marvel Studios may be secretly planning a World War Hulk movie, with plans to film this year for a late 2023 or early 2024 release. If these reports are accurate, the hit Gamma-infused box office could also claim the February 2024 date, though there is currently no public indication of any progress on the project, unlike Deadpool 3.
Beyond 2024, according to the box office report, disney has also scheduled release dates for unannounced films on February 14 and July 25, 2025, placing them as phase 6 films on either side of avengers: the kang dynasty. additional dates are also scheduled for 2026 on February 13, May 1 and July 24, which should put them in phase 7.
when will deadpool 3 be announced?
In the lead up to comic-con, mcu fans set expectations back and forth multiple times, from just phase 4 reveals to a phase 5 roster. ultimately, kevin feige ended up going above and beyond. even from the latter when he revealed the slates for phases 4, 5 and 6, now better known as the saga of the multiverse.
Despite surprising fans with a lot of content, many were disappointed by the lack of news about mutants. em. Marvel recently introduced Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan as the MCU’s first mutant, leading many to believe that news of the MCU’s X-Men reboot, supposedly titled The Mutants, could be on the way.
As Marvel Studios has yet to announce the Mutants, that reveal always felt like a long shot. But most assumed Deadpool 3 would deliver some news, with Reynolds becoming more vocal about the project, Levy on board to direct, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning to write the script and pre-production underway.
However, Disney may simply be itching to save some reveals for its d23 presentation in September. With filming expected to begin in the first half of 2023, a formal announcement before the end of the year seems inevitable. maybe reynolds will take the stage at d23 to officially confirm deadpool’s return to theaters in february 2024 along with some surprise reveals.
deadpool 3 has yet to officially confirm a release date, but the first two installments in the trilogy are streaming now on disney+.
