Deadpool 3 is a done deal now and there’s no stopping the upcoming clash of James and Wade in an R-rated setting. But a new update from Ryan Reynolds may have put a dent in the epicness of this matchup as he seems to be a bit iffy on the stunt work that he’d have to pull off to make it happen. In fact, the 46-Year-Old actor is even more worried about his fourth child with Blake Lively.
Well, the fear is real! Reynolds has been starring in action movies year after year. Even in the last 5-6 years, we’ve seen him in films like The Hitman’s Bodyguard, 6 Underground, Red Notice, The Adam Project, and several others besides the Deadpool franchise. So, starring in these many action movies has got to take a toll on any person no matter what. Although, you need not worry about the stunt work in Deadpool 3 because it has every chance of being as awesome as before.

Why Deadpool 3 Could Still Have Great Action
The benefit of playing this character is that more often than not, Reynolds has to stay in a fully masked suit. And that means he could easily have stunt doubles do most of the hard stuff for him. He previously admitted that his stunt work was reduced moving from Deadpool to Deadpool 2. So even though he will be involved in a few stunts, being in the suit for long periods of time would allow him an escape from rigorous stunt work. And with the professionals handling the action, we can be certain of better fight sequences.
Check out his latest interview at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:
Deadpool was never really a problem. The main was always about Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine, as the actor has been pretty vocal about the stunt work and the hours he had to put in the gym to remain in peak physical condition. Even at the age of 54, he has gone back to put in the hard yards. But now, the good thing for him is that he will mostly have to be in his comic-accurate suit this time around. Even though he’d be determined, we should still expect the stunt doubles to take over for him in half of his sequences too. All in all, Deadpool 3 is in safe hands.
When Deadpool 3 Begins Production
In a separate interview on The Jess Cagle Show, Reynolds also gave a promising update for the filming of Deadpool 3 as he said:
“Production should start, hopefully some time just before summer. But the shooting is the short, easier part. Then it’s the lead-up, the prep, the writing. The shootings quick, then you have the edit process. That’s where the movie gets really made is the edit room.”
This Summer 2023 production window is totally spot on as director Shawn Levy and co will have more than a year for the post-production stage. Deadpool 3 is set to arrive on November 8, 2024.
