Deadpool 3 will commence filming in London in May.
The first two films, starring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool, are in the top 3 highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time and the original Deadpool is credited with proving that movies with this rating can indeed become monster hits.
Social media recently went crazy when Reynolds announced that Hugh Jackman would be making a shock return as Wolverine for Deadpool 3, and Levy's words suggest we are going to get some R-rated zingers between Logan and Wade Wilson.
“We are writing, rewriting, developing, prepping Deadpool every day now," the director told Collider.
"It is such a blast to laugh every day. It is so delicious to hear and write and come up with these scenes where people are just talking foul and the violence is in your face and hardcore, and it’s very much a Deadpool movie.
"And it has Logan in it. And it has Wolverine in it. It’s too fun.”
Collider reports that filming could get under way as early as May of 2023.
Some fans suggested that Deadpool could potentially become more family-friendly as the new movie will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Reynolds announces Jackman's return
Jackman has played Wolverine for over two decades, starting with X-Men and finishing with Logan, which was released in 2017.
The character's arc and ultimate death in Logan led many to speculate that his time playing the mutant was over. Jackman himself even expressed apprehension about returning.
But, his return was confirmed via a hilarious video posted to Reynolds' social media pages.
