The topic “Deadpool 3 Update Casts Doubt on Release Date Plan” has two versions, a written version below, and a video version below the written version.
However, the writers’ strike seems to be coming to an end as the WGA and the AMPTP have reached an agreement that satisfies both sides. The only remaining step is to ratify the new contract.
Nevertheless, the impact of the five-month-long work stoppage is still being felt, and the Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA) must also come to an agreement with the studios before actors can return to work. As a result, many film and TV projects remain in a state of uncertainty.
Deadpool 3’s Release Date In Flux
There’s some disappointing news for fans of Marvel’s Deadpool franchise. According to a report by Deadline, it seems unlikely that the highly-anticipated third installment of the series will meet its scheduled release date of May 3, 2024.
The reason for this uncertainty is due to the ongoing strike by SAG-AFTRA, which is still unresolved despite the Writers Guild situation being resolved. Additionally, there’s still some footage left to shoot for Deadpool 3, which is about halfway through filming as per director Shawn Levy.
A source even suggested that the 2024 film release schedule is unreliable, indicating that several movies planned for next year may end up getting postponed from their original release dates.
The Merc With a Mouth in May?
Could Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman make a comeback as Wade Wilson and Wolverine in Deadpool 3, which is set to premiere in theaters?
Although the film was not listed on Disney’s upcoming schedule, the list was not comprehensive, leaving room for the possibility that the studio may be planning to release the movie on May 3.
However, since a significant portion of the movie still needs to be filmed and post-production work requires many visual effects shots, it is highly likely that Deadpool 3 may not be ready by May and may be postponed until later in 2024.
Nonetheless, the cast and crew are enthusiastic about the project and will begin filming as soon as possible.
As of now, Deadpool 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2024.
