Hated Free Guy and The Adam Project? You’ll probably want to dial down your expectations for Wade Wilson’s next live-action outing then, as The Hollywood Reporter has sent word that Shawn Levy is teaming up with Ryan Reynolds once again for Deadpool 3. Levy will be the third director to tackle the franchise following Tim Miller and David Leitch, the latter of whom was reportedly keen on returning for another installment but got tired of waiting to hear back from Disney and moved on to other projects (e.g., Bullet Train with Brad Pitt). It’s unclear when Deadpool 3 might be released or what it’ll be about, but fans can probably expect the same level of wackiness and vulgarity that graced the previous films.

  • Frequent Reynolds collaborators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the scripts for the first two films, and are now working Deadpool 3.
  • This will be the first Deadpool film following Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, which released the first two films.

  1. Because of this post, I went and watched Free Guy last night.

    It was definitely a Ryan Reynolds movie. Toned down a bit, but that was to be expected for the target audience. I don't think any director will reign him in too far. The worst part about the movie was Taika Waititi - who was just too over the top and exaggerated

    Watched Adam Project with the wife over the weekend. It was entertaining.

    I agree. I'm a big fan on him but his part didn't seem quite right or natural fitting. Other than that, yeah it was the usual stuff, but we liked it.

    We did as well and thought the same. Nothing overly special but did have a few moments that were deeper than expected. I thought the kid did well.
