After years in development limbo, Deadpool 3 finally wrapped filming this week marking a major milestone towards the Merc with a Mouth’s highly anticipated MCU debut. Naturally, star Ryan Reynolds bid farewell to production in signature wisecracking style while teasing the threequel will deliver everything fans hope for and more when it lands in theaters November 2024.
Milestone Moment as MCU’s First R-Rated Entry
Earning over $1.5 billion globally, 20th Century Fox’s original Deadpool films pushed boundaries with vulgar wit and graphically gleeful hyper-violence unseen in previous comic book blockbusters. Now under Disney’s banner after acquiring Fox, suspense swirled regarding whether the studio would dare introduce such a subversive potty-mouthed antihero into their family-friendly hit machine.
But thanks to Reynolds’ passionate persistence, Deadpool 3 secured an official green light in late 2020 boasting not only an MTV-sized budget but also an R rating and his trusted creative collaborators returning to steer this seminal series-capper.

Plot Hints and Potential Surprises
While story details remain tightly under wraps, the threequel’s official logo reveal last year teased Deadpool’s first team-up alongside time-jumping mutant Cable played by Josh Brolin. Whether their alliance deals with Kang the Conqueror’s arrival, alternate timeline shenanigans, or perhaps X-Force redemption after the infamous Vanisher splat is anyone’s guess currently.
Yet with filming locations spanning London, Malibu, and Vancouver plus intriguing working titles like “Good Omens” and “Absurd City” – the creative roadmap likely twists and turns in many wild directions before reaching the finish line. Not to mention A-list cameos galore surely awaiting in Fox’s treasure trove of characters and concept art collections.
Hilarious Sign-Off Hints This Threequel Aims To Please
Ever the showman, Reynolds marked the momentous milestone by posting a photo collapsed and exhausted still in costume. But his hysterical caption promises that while taxing, this threequel endeavor seeks solely to produce maximum smiles amongst audiences.
As he put it, “We gave this everything we had. Every single take was a home run. Every single day on set was filled with laughter. And now that’s a wrap on Deadpool 3. I feel incredibly lucky that I get to bounce between two production families that I love so much.
Reynolds then quips work continues perfecting the film through 2025 before unveiling this long-awaited passion project tied in neat bows and unicorn glitter to dazzle fans come November 2024.
If his unwavering commitment to Deadpool’s integrity proves any indication – this uproarious MCU arrival looks primed to deliver outrageous R-rated action in spades alongside heartfelt homages finally uniting Marvel’s mutants under one roof. Audiences need only wait and see what madness awaits when his crimson cash-grab returns at last to grace the silver screen once more.
