Deadpool 3 gets big filming update post-strikeJoe Lederer - 20th Century Studios

Deadpool 3 has received an exciting update following the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike.

The third movie in Ryan Reynolds' superhero series started filming shortly before the actors joined the writers in Hollywood on the picket lines. The strike meant that production had to be paused, but now it can continue.

And it looks like Deadpool 3 is wasting no time is getting back into production, as Variety states that cameras will start rolling again before Thanksgiving, which falls on Thursday, November 23, this year.

Deadpool 3 was scheduled for an early May release before the four-month production pause. Judging from Reynolds' tweet posted today (November 9) following the strike end news, it looks like it's not been delayed too much and is on track for a "summer 2024" release.

He's also seemingly confirmed the character Dogpool will be in the film, writing: "Did Dogpool save the day? Not a chance in gremlin hell. But she IS currently causing the Disney plushy merch department nightmares."

This Deadpool is the first movie in the series to be made following The Walt Disney Company's purchase of 20th Century Fox, and the first to be made by Marvel Studios.

It's still going to feature elements from Fox's X-Men movies, most notably Hugh Jackman is bringing Wolverine out of retirement to front this movie with his long term banter buddy Reynolds.

It's also been reported that Jennifer Garner is reprising the role of Elektra from the ill-fated 2000s movies Daredevil and Elektra.

How Deadpool and his Fox universe buddies will fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unknown at this time, but it will probably be silly, self-aware and thankfully, still R-rated.

"I wasn't going to mess with the DNA of that franchise," producer Shawn Levy said. "Our movie is raw, audacious, very much R-rated, and we went to great lengths to not shoot it on sound stages with digital environments. We wanted something that felt grounded, real."
