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.
