Ryan Reynolds reveals Deadpool 3 director

March 11th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Well, the speculation can be ended now as we finally know who will be directing Ryan Reynolds’ debut in the MCU as Deadpool.

Taking to Twitter, Reynolds posted the image above, writing ‘The third film in my Shawn Levy trilogy will be a tad more stabby’, meaning that, following Free Guy and The Adam Project, he and Levy will be teaming up to give the MCU a much-needed shot of Wade Wilson.

Levy is no stranger to big movies with Night at the Museum, Reel Steel and Stranger Things (yes, I know it’s tv) all under his belt, so he is certainly a good choice for Deadpool 3 and he a Reynolds already have a fun history together, which should make it more fun.

We’re hearing on the grapevine that the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will see Deadpool, along with Zazie Beetz’s Domino and Josh Brolin’s Cable all set to return too, which is great news if it turns out to be true.

What do you think of Levy as director of Deadpool in the MCU? Yes, no, or something more complicated? Let me know all your thoughts, guys,

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
