UPDATE: According to an official Disney press page, Captain America: Brave New World has been brought forward in release date to May 3rd, 2024.
Due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike and studios being greedy and not wanting to pay their fair share, Deadpool 3 is another casualty. Deadline is reporting that Deadpool 3 won’t be making it’s current release date of May 3rd, 2024. Even if the strike ends in the next few weeks, it wouldn’t be enough time to finish all the filming and other production aspects in time for that release date. Deadpool 3 is the first in a likely long line of releases that’ll be shuffled around as studios scramble to try to get schedules down. Other studios have moved films in 2023 around, but the schedule is going to get bare pretty quickly.
Captain America: Brave New World might end up moving from its July 26th, 2024 date to the May 3rd, 2024 date now. That film is in better shape than Deadpool 3, as it’s already finished production. Deadpool 3 is left without a release date for now. It could move to that July date, or further back in November 2024. Thunderbolts is currently in that November slot, but that could also move now.
There’s plenty of rumors about the plot of Deadpool 3, including one that it might include Fantastic Four characters.
It further cements that movies cannot be made without actors, and for the actors to come back to work, the studios need to give their fair share. Studio greed is the only reason why we’re not getting Deadpool 3 when it was supposed to come out. So if you want to see all the amazing new Marvel films, or any other film coming out, give the actors what they want.
Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood have stepped forward to try to present a proposal to augment some of the costs of a SAG-AFTRA proposal. Their proposal would ensure that the lowest paid members of the union would get paid first and fairly.
Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. It’s directed by Shawn Levy.
