Following the huge critical and commercial success recorded by Deadpool and Deadpool 2, fans and followers of the film series have been clamoring for the release of Deadpool 3. We have been doing some digging ourselves to ascertain if there will be a sequel or not and its possible release date. Read on to learn about our findings.
Is Deadpool 3 Confirmed?
The producers of the franchise revealed in November 2016 during the making of Deadpool 2 that there are plans for a sequel titled Deadpool 3. There have also been some reports that David Leitch, director of Deadpool 2, would not be returning as director for the upcoming film. We expect a comment from Fox concerning that very soon.
The merger between Disney and 20th Century Fox left most of Deadpool fans and followers in doubt over the making of a new Deadpool film. Many indicated that the merger could signal the end of the award-winning franchise. Bob Iger, Disney Head, reassured fans and investors that the company intends to continue with the Deadpool franchise.
Deadpool 3 has been under development since the release of the second film and from all indications, the anticipated blockbuster is nearing completion. The members of the cast for the much-awaited film have not yet been revealed except for Ryan Reynolds who portrays the lead character. It remains very much unclear if Zazie Beetz or Morena Baccarin will be featuring in the upcoming sequel.
The budget for Deadpool 3 is believed to supersede that of its predecessors as the new film promises many improvements and modifications. A quick teaser – popular American actor Dwayne Johnson may likely make an appearance in the superhero action film.
When Do We Get To See Deadpool 3 At The Cinema?
There has been no official release date given by the producers of Deadpool 3 so far. Our guess is that considering the time frame in which the previous films were released, the filmmakers are in no rush to come out with the next installment.
Lots of speculations have risen, owing to the silence surrounding the release of Deadpool 3. We have seen lots of possible release dates on the internet, as well as social media but those cannot be fully trusted. One cannot expect to see the full film without the trailer first coming out. So far, no Deadpool 3 trailers have been released except for some teasers released on social media and YouTube.
However, we expect that Fox will release the official Deadpool 3 trailer, either before the end of 2019 or by January 2020. The release of the full film globally might follow afterward but notwithstanding, it will definitely hit the cinemas by the year 2020.
