When Disney announced the massive purchase of Fox, MCU fans realized that all the Marvel properties Fox held would return home. The X-Men, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), and Fantastic Four would finally be available to fight with and alongside the Avengers in the MCU. At the time, Disney confirmed that Deadpool will stay unchanged, implying that a Deadpool 3 film was already in the works.
But Marvel needed three years to confirm the Deadpool 3 release date. Well, it was Ryan Reynolds who dropped the giant bomb in a fashion that only the beloved Deadpool actor could pull off.
We’ll cover all the information available about the movie below, including the theatrical release, the Disney Plus release date, the trailers, and details about the cast. You’ll also find an extensive collection of Deadpool 3 rumors at the end of this post.
You’ll want to avoid our “Leaks and rumors” section below if you hate spoilers. Another warning will follow before the spoilers section.
Deadpool 3 release date
Ryan Reynolds took to social media in late September 2022 to reveal the Deadpool 3 release date. The actor dropped an even bigger reveal during the clip, telling fans that Hugh Jackman will return to his Wolverine role for the Deadpool sequel.
Since then, Disney has slightly delayed the Deadpool 3 release. The first schedule change had Deadpool 3 release on November 8th, 2024. In mid-June 2023, Marvel brought Deadpool 3 forward. The film was supposed to hit theaters on May 3rd, 2024. Then, the actors’ strike happened, stopping production for several months.
Following Disney’s quarterly earnings report for Q3 FY2023 (June 2023), there’s a real worry that the Deadpool 3 release date might be delayed on account of the ongoing strikes in the industry. The studio’s latest movie release calendar (August 9th, 2023) doesn’t list the Deadpool sequel’s current premiere date, which is May 3rd, 2024.
Deadpool 3 Disney Plus release date
Deadpool 3 will not be available on Disney Plus on the same day as its theatrical release, of course. Disney has a strict policy in place for MCU movies. They’ll get an exclusive theatrical release of at least 45 days before being available for streaming.
Therefore, the Deadpool 3 Disney Plus premiere would happen on or after June 17th, 2024, under Bob Chapek’s rules. But since Bob Iger got back, Disney changed the release schedules. MCU movies appear to take longer to hit the streaming service.
Also, Deadpool 3 should be a massive hit at the box office. Disney will want to give it as much time as possible in theaters, before moving to digital releases and then to streaming.
Deadpool 3 cast
Marvel has yet to announce the full Deadpool 3 cast, so we only know a few names that Reynolds confirmed. We expect plenty of surprises from this movie, which should be a multiverse story. That’s the only way for Marvel to bring Fox’s Deadpool to the MCU.
Here are the characters we know we’ll get in Deadpool 3:
- Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds)
- Wolverine (Hugh Jackman)
- Blind Al (Leslie Uggams)
- Cassandra Nova (Emma Corrin)
- TBD (Matthew Macfadyen)
- Vanessa (Morena Baccarin)
- Colossus (Stefan Kapicic)
- Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand)
- Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna)
Deadpool 3 trailers
The first Deadpool 3 teaser trailer should hit the internet sometime early in 2024, assuming the theatrical release date isn’t changed again. We’ll have to get closer to the film’s premiere to see it. Until then, you can rewatch Reynolds’ brilliant Deadpool 3 reveal below:
