Fans have long-awaited this dynamic duo on the big screen, and Levy teased that their on-screen chemistry is living up to expectations.

“I love the proliferation of casting rumors on the internet, because I never have to say what’s real and what’s fantasy, so I’m just going to go with the very cliche ‘no comment’ on all things casting [with] Deadpool 3,” Levy mused durign The Jess Cagle Show. “I will say, we’re lucky on this one. There’s certainly — is this an answer? A lot of the internet rumors are completely false, but some of them aren’t.”

Levy also discussed the temporary halt in production due to industry strikes, expressing the crew’s eagerness to resume work once a fair deal is reached. This pause in filming hasn’t diminished the excitement for what promises to be an exciting addition to the Marvel universe.

“Well, like the rest of our industry, or at least large swaths of it, we are paused. We were halfway through filming Deadpool, co-starring Wolverine. It was a joy every day, and that chemistry is, I have to say, spoiler alert, it is as relentlessly awesome as we had all hoped it would be,” Levy explained. “But we are halfway through filming, we shut down, our crew and the rest of us are awaiting a fair and equitable deal that ends these strikes and puts our industry and certainly inclusive of our movie back at work.”
