Deadpool 3: The Latest Release Date, Cast And Characters

All work at Hollywood stopped between July 14 and November 9, 2023, due to the strike called by the American Actor’s Union over a labor dispute with the Alliance Motion Picture and Television Producers. The massive disruption affected the films scheduled for release in 2023 and pushed back the much-awaited release of Deadpool 3. MCU fans had been waiting eagerly to see Ryan Reynolds in action again after five years since the release of Deadpool 2 in 2018 but were left disappointed as the sequel is now set for release on July 26, 2024, instead of May 3, 2024. The new movie will host several characters drawn from Deadpool and X-Men, as it appears from numerous leaked photos that have kept the rumor mills running.

Deadpool 3 – The Biggest Marvel Movie of 2024

The postponement of the release of Deadpool 3 puts it in an unusual position as it will be the only MCU movie of the year and even the biggest one from the MCU. A series of changes to the release schedule has left fans in a tizzy as they remain skeptical. September 6, 2024, was the first official release date, which suddenly shifted to November 8, 2024. And before fans could come to terms, the announcement came about the May 2024 release. The advancement of the release date delighted fans, but little did they know that more surprise was in store for them with the announcement of another change of date. So Deadpool 3 release date is now July 26, 2024.

The Strike Pushed Back the Release

The movie was in the making since May 2023. The shooting continued until the strike by writers and actors began on July 14, 2023, which shut down Hollywood. Just before the strike, the director of the movie, Shawn Levy, was happy that they were halfway through. With a lengthy layoff of about 6 months, the work of the film resumed in November 2023, and hoping that there will be no further stoppage. The production house feels that they should be able to meet the new deadline of July 24, 2024 release.

The Cast and Characters

Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson or Deadpool will lead the cast of Deadpool 3. It will have Hugh Jackman, making his MCU debut as Wolverine, by his side. Reynolds debuted for MCU much earlier when he appeared in an advertisement for Korg, a character in Thor: Ragnarok, besides getting a name drop in Avengers Assemble: Flight Force. In Ryan Reynolds Deadpool 3, Emma Corrin, who will play the lead villain in the movie, is an interesting new entrant to the Marvel universe. Matthew Macfadyen, the Succession star, is another MCU debutant, but his role remains unknown.

Some of the new heroes of the X-Force team seen in Deadpool 2 will make a comeback in the new movie. We could see Josh Brolin, who essayed the role of Cable. Although it’s for sure that Stefan Kapicic will be back as Colosuss, it’s not clear whether his other X-Force mates like Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Peter (Rob Delaney) and Russell (Julian Dennison) would give him company.

Although the chances of seeing Zeitgeist (Bill Skarsgård) and Shatterstar (Lewis Tan) seem bleak since cheating death is common among superheroes, we must keep our fingers crossed. However, Deadpool’s girlfriend Vanessa, played by Morena Baccarin, will return as the actor confirmed in April 2023. In the same way, Leslie Uggams, who played Reynolds’s roommate Blind Al, would be by his pal’s side again. The third part of Deadpool will also see the return of Dopinder, played by Karan Soni in the 2018 movie.


The biggest surprise that awaits fans is the much-rumored appearance of Taylor Swift, tipped for playing Dazzler. But until now, there has yet to be a hint from the director Levy, who prefers to remain tight-lipped.

As the wait for the release of Deadpool 3 is too stressful for the fans of the franchise, they can expect to see the trailer release in the first month of 2024, hoping that there is no further change in the release date.
