Deadpool 3 Director Expresses Uncertainty About 2024 Release Date

Deadpool 3 Release Date

Deadpool 3, the highly anticipated Marvel Studios film, might face another delay in its release date, according to director Shawn Levy. In a recent interview, Levy provided an update on the movie’s progress and hinted at the challenges ahead. Let’s dive into the details.

Shawn Levy revealed to TheWrap that he has completed the editing of half of Deadpool 3. However, he expressed uncertainty regarding the film’s release date, casting doubts on whether it can stick to its initial May 2024 target. Levy cited the SAG-AFTRA strike and the significant pause in production as potential reasons for the delay. “I wish I knew. I don’t even know if we officially have [a release date]. I know we were going to be May 3,” Levy said. “Certainly, the actors’ strike and the long pause in production have put that release date in true risk. We’ve shot half the movie. I’ve edited half the movie. We’re dying to get back to work and get this movie out next year.”

During the same interview, Shawn Levy was asked about the popular rumor regarding Taylor Swift potentially playing Dazzler in Deadpool 3. Levy neither confirmed nor denied the speculation, teasing that fans will have to “wait and see.” This rumor gained traction when Swift was seen with Levy, Hugh Jackman, and Ryan Reynolds at an NFL match between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets. “They sure are loud,” Levy commented about eager fans. “I’m going across the board. ‘No comment’ because that’s a double whammy. That’s Taylor-related. And it’s MCU-related. I’m no dummy. You’re going to have to wait and see.”

It’s worth noting that Taylor Swift’s potential involvement in Deadpool 3 isn’t entirely surprising, as the “Anti-Hero” singer has a longstanding friendship with Ryan Reynolds due to her close relationship with his wife, Blake Lively. If Swift indeed takes on the role of Dazzler, it won’t be the first live-action portrayal of the character, as Halston Sage played a version of Dazzler in 2019’s Dark Phoenix. In the comics, Dazzler is known for her unique ability to convert sound into dazzling light and energy beams, and she also pursues a career in music.

In addition to Swift, several other prominent names have been rumored to join Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 3, including Daniel Radcliffe, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, Ian McKellen, Liev Schreiber, and Dafne Keen. When asked about these casting rumors in a previous interview, Levy remained coy but hinted that some of them might indeed be true, keeping fans in suspense. “I’d rather not weigh in on that, but I’ll say this. The rumors of actors, singers, sports stars who are all apparently in Deadpool 3 are fabulous,” he said. “If all I read was the internet, I would have the greatest cast ever assembled in the history of cinema, so I’ll simply say that some of those rumors are true, and some of them aren’t.”

As of now, Deadpool 3 is still scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2024, but the uncertainty surrounding the release date has fans eagerly awaiting further updates and announcements. Stay tuned for more exciting developments in the world of Deadpool and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
