Most of us are excited for the release of Deadpool 3 - even if what we eventually get won't be called Deadpool 3.

The first two movies in the franchise are in the top five most successful R-rated features in history and received positive reviews from critics, with particular praise sent the way of Ryan Reynolds for his portrayal of the merc with a mouth.

In 2022, Reynolds made the huge announcement that Deadpool 3 would see the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine despite the actor's apparent retirement from the role following 2017's Logan.

Allegedly, the only way Jackman would have been persuaded to return was the prospect of Wolverine and Deadpool teaming up following the disaster that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Director Shawn Levy has revealed that there isn't a settled title yet, though.

"There’s no title yet. I sometimes refer to it as 'Deadpool versus Wolverine' or 'Deadpool and Wolverine' or 'Deadpool 3 With Wolvie'—we’ve got a few titles we’ve been bandying about, but boy, it’s a tough one," he told Wired.

Wade Wilson is a special government agent who, after being subjected to a treatment that gives him superhuman healing powers, takes on an alter ego in the form of 'Deadpool'. Armed with his newfound skills and a twisted sense of humor, he hunts down the man who has ruined nearly his entire life.

With the next Deadpool movie set to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some fans have expressed concern that Disney might try and dilute some of the R-rated material that has become synonymous with the character.

But, Levy says they are staying true to the two previous movies.

"Not only have Kevin Feige and Marvel and Disney supported this extremely Deadpool-ian, audacious, R-rated tone, they’ve also supported our super meta, self-referential self-awareness," he revealed.

"Some of the jokes are dirty, some of them are cultural observations, but that’s what we love about Deadpool, that he knows he’s in a movie, even though the stakes are real. Our movie is very loyal to that DNA too, with tremendous Marvel and Disney support, in making fun of and being self-aware about everything, including themselves."
