After receiving the prestigious Order of British Columbia, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds addressed recent Taylor Swift MCU rumors for the highly-anticipated third installment. Speaking with Vancouver Sun, Reynolds didn’t confirm nor deny Swift’s involvement in Deadpool 3, but expressed how thrilled he is at the level of attention that his first MCU movie has been getting.
“Yeah, I’ve heard that one,” said Reynolds laughing. “I love it (the gossip). I think it is a sign of how eager people are to get a peek behind the curtain in this world. Every single one of these secrets and spoilers will be revealed on July 26.”
Following the end of the Hollywood strikes, production on Deadpool 3 has finally resumed in London, which Reynolds admitted wasn’t his first choice for filming. He shared that he “fought like hell” to convince Marvel Studios to shoot the R-rated superhero threequel in Canada.
He added, “They have their infrastructure, and you just have to sort of fall in line. To a certain degree I understand that, but I miss home.”
Who’s in Deadpool 3?
Deadpool 3 reunites lead star Ryan Reynolds with Free Guy and The Adam Project filmmaker Shawn Levy, who has signed on to helm the long-awaited project. Hugh Jackson and Jennifer Garner are finally coming out of their superhero retirement to reprise their respective iconic Marvel roles as Wolverine and Elektra in Deadpool 3.
The third installment will also feature the return of Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Rob Delaney as Peter, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio. In addition, the movie will also welcome the addition of Marvel newcomers Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen.
The film is written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Zeb Wells from a previous draft by the Molyneux sisters (Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin). It is produced by Reynolds, Levy, and Kevin Feige, who previously assured fans that Deadpool 3 will officially be Marvel Studios’ first R-rated movie.
