Ryan Reynolds is known for marketing his films and projects and has done the same in the case of Deadpool films. The Deadpool star appears to do the same with the threequel in the film series. He has been actively promoting the film and even took the responsibility to announce Hugh Jackman’s comeback with the threequel. So when his co-star took over the opportunity to announce the possible title of Deadpool 3, the Free Guy star did not seem too happy about it.
While fans did consider the title announced by the Wolverine actor legit, Reynolds recently shared a new video on his Twitter, dismissing Jackman’s suggested title for Deadpool 3.
Ryan Reynolds Dismisses Hugh Jackman’s Deadpool 3 Title
Earlier, Hugh Jackman shared a video talking about Ryan Reynolds’ new film Spirited. While sharing his thoughts about Spirited, he addressed Deadpool 3 as Wolverine and Deadpool. “Having to spend a year with him [Reynolds] shooting Wolverine and Deadpool,” Jackman said.
It led many to assume that the title of Deadpool 3 could be Wolverine and Deadpool. However, the Spirited actor does not seem to agree with his co-star, as shared a new video debunking the title.
Ryan Reynolds recently shared a video on Twitter claiming that Wolverine and Deadpool is not the title he’s going with for the threequel. He started the video by addressing Jackman’s recent movie, The Son. He said, “Hugh’s performance as a son struggling with his relationship with his dad, his father, is literally, one of the best of his entire career.”

As he finishes his wishes for the Chappie star and the screen goes black, Reynolds says, “Wolverine & Deadpool… Who’s he kidding? Not on your life, Chappie.” Hugh Jackman responded to the video with a tweet saying, “when [Ryan Reynolds] goes high, I go higher.”
Although Ryan Reynolds did not share what the title of Deadpool 3 should be, he seems confident that it’s not what Hugh Jackman expects.
When Will Deadpool 3 Start Filming?
Deadpool 3 has been under development for the last few years. The lead star of the film, Ryan Reynolds, confirmed the news in December 2019. The excitement for the sequel grew even more after the Criminal star announced Hugh Jackman’s involvement in the film.
The announcement also revealed the initial release date for the film, September 6, 2024. However, the studio changed the schedule for a few films, including Deadpool 3. Although the studio has extended its release date, fans are still curious about when the shooting of the film will begin.
The director of Deadpool 3, Shawn Levy, shared during one of his interviews that they have started working on the script of the film. He said, “We are writing, rewriting, developing, prepping ‘Deadpool’ every day now. It is such a blast to laugh every day.”
He also shared that the “more digitally CG-heavy a movie is, the longer time you need in post.” Although he did not clearly say when the filming would officially start, he claimed that Deadpool’s MCU entry would not lack in “visual effects.” He also claimed that the threequel would be “raw, gritty, grounded” just like the previous films of the series.
Deadpool 3 is set to release on 8 November 2024.
