Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 Wraps Filming, As Indicated By Hilarious Social Media Post
The Marvel Studios Deadpool 3, which features Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine, is set to premiere on July 26.
Ryan Reynolds marked the completion of filming for Deadpool 3 in a manner that perfectly captures the essence of the character. He shared a photo, humorously depicting his genitals, albeit covered by a costume that unmistakably represents Deadpool’s distinctive attire.
Deadpool 3 Ryan Reynolds Celebrates Filming Complete
“The suit hides the blood. Also sweat… But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it’s mostly tears,” Reynolds posted to his social media. “A giant and forever thanks to the cast and crew of our film who battled wind, rain, strikes and … all under the stalwart leadership of I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn’t happen very often. See ya July 26th.” Along with the statement is the following image.
Putting aside the playful tone, it’s uncommon for actors to publicly highlight the completion of a project. Ryan Reynolds’ evident excitement is understandable, considering the unique circumstances surrounding Deadpool 3. Over five years have passed since the release of Deadpool 2, and during that time, the film rights to the character were transferred as 20th Century Fox, the studio in control, became a part of Disney.
Fans had longed for the return of Deadpool, and the idea of an R-rated Deadpool movie under Disney’s umbrella initially seemed improbable. Nevertheless, various writers contributed to shaping the narrative over the ensuing years. The film ultimately pushed its way into production following a protracted development process. Ryan Reynolds, heavily involved as Deadpool 3 producer, writer, and star of the franchise, even succeeded in bringing back Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, despite the character’s demise in Logan.

Hugh Jackman also commented on the end of filming. The actor posted a video on his Instagram account shaving his characteristic beard. He also commented on the caption: What a ride! I’ve loved every minute of making this movie. Well … not the 4a training or the steamed fish and veg 4 x a day for 6 months but the other 93.2%. A collective thank you to the entire cast and crew. You are all aces! If you’re reading this and think I mean you, I do. To two of my best mates @vancityreynolds and @slevydirect I literally couldn’t have done this without you. LITERALLY! July 26th can’t come soon enough. Time to shave.
