“I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn’t happen very often. See ya July 26th,” he added.

Deadpool 3 was one of a handful of feature productions to resume promptly late fall along with Warner Bros’ Beetlejuice 2, Paramount’s Gladiator 2, Sony’s Venom 3 and Warner’s Juror No. 2. Deadpool 3 was roughly 50% in the can before the actors strike began in mid-July 2023. The threequel to the $1.57 billion Deadpool franchise was set to kick off summer 2024 over the tried-and-true first weekend of May, a spot on the calendar held by Marvel for several years. However, as the actors strike continued, Deadpool 3 was forced off that date and placed on July 26.

Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy teased Deadpool 3 to us at TIFF back in September, saying, “We wanted something that felt, grounded, real…You put Hugh Jackman in his most iconic character alongside Ryan Reynolds in his most iconic character; it’s more of a descendant of Midnight Run, and 48 Hours, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles more than it’s a descendant of Airplane.

Jackman also jumped in with his g’byes, writing on social, “What a ride!!! I’ve loved every minute of making this movie. Well not the training and diet but the other 93.2%. To the best cast and crew, thank you! You are all aces. To two of my best mates @VancityReynolds and @ShawnLevyDirect I literally couldn’t have done this without you. Literally! July 26th can’t come soon enough. Time to shave.”
