  • ‘Deadpool 3’ is officially wrapped shooting.
  • Ryan Reynolds marked the moment with a social media post.
  • The movie lands in theaters on July 26th.

Ryan Reynolds is not shy about document everything he’s working on (or promoting) via social media. So of course he would mark the occasion of ‘Deadpool 3’ wrapping filming.

Reynolds hit Instagram on Wednesday to thank director Shawn Levy, the cast and crew (while taking a typical pot shot at co-star and friend Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the movie) and posting a picture of, well Deadpool’s crotch. Which is fairly standard for the Merc with a Mouth.

Here’s the post…

What’s the story of ‘Deadpool 3’?

The ‘Deadpool’ team have yet to release formal details of the third movie’s plot, but we do know it’ll see Jackman’s Wolverine meeting up with Reynolds’ Wade Wilson –– and that things will not necessarily go well, since the pair tend to fight when they interact in the comics.

We’re promised plenty of the usual meta madness inherent to Deadpool’s adventures. This time around, expect nods at the X-Men’s (and Wade’s) previous home at 20th Century Fox (before Disney’s purchase of it nabbed them the rights to the characters), and plenty of cameos from other people, including Jennifer Garner as Elektra.

Several of the cast from the first two ‘Deadpool’ movies are returning for this one, with Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni and Rob Delaney all aboard, joined by new recruits Emma Corrin and Matthew McFadyen (whose characters are still a mystery, though Corrin is reportedly a villain).

What happened with ‘Deadpool 3’s production?

Following the exciting announcement that Jackman would reprise his Wolverine role for the movie, ‘Deadpool 3’ kicked off shooting in May, only for production to shut down in July when the actors’ strike began.

With Levy calling the shots, the film returned to production in November once the strikes were over. Filming had been roughly halfway finished when the shutdown occurred, so there was still a fair amount of work to be done.

‘Deadpool 3’ is the one big hope for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2024 (at least on the big screen), as it’s the only full Marvel movie –– the Sony Spider-Man-associated titles such as ‘Madame Web’ and ‘Kraven the Hunter’ don’t really count –– to arrive this year.

When will ‘Deadpool 3’ be in theaters?

With Levy working quickly to complete post-production on the new footage (he started editing and effects work during the strikes), ‘Deadpool 3’ is targeting a July 26th release date.
