20th Century Fox

While admitting that the third 'Deadpool' movie is 'the hardest' thing he has ever worked on, the director says 'it's also been the most creatively gratifying' at the same time.

AceShowbiz - "Deadpool" fans, brace yourselves! "Deadpool & Wolverine", premiering on July 26, is set to redefine Marvel's universe in ways no one anticipated. Ryan Reynolds' beloved anti-hero makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut, dragging along Hugh Jackman's Wolverine for a wild multiverse ride.

Despite the open nature of the multiverse and Deadpool's audacious tone, questions regarding a follow-up are already swirling. Director Shawn Levy, reuniting with Reynolds for a third time after "Free Guy" and "The Adam Project", has yet to confirm a fourth installment. In a candid conversation, Levy told Deadline, "I'm waiting for the questions when I have to lie and pretend I don't know the answer, but this one I can sincerely say I don't know."

Levy's enthusiasm for this project is palpable. "But I can, in the same breath, say, 'Man, this thing has been the hardest, most all-consuming thing I've ever done. But it's also been the most creatively gratifying,' " he continued. Working with close friends Reynolds and Jackman has made the journey particularly memorable for Levy. "And to do it with my best friend Ryan, my other buddy Hugh... it was just a blast," he confessed.

Jackman's involvement brings a fresh dynamic to the iconic series. Initially hesitant, Jackman came on board, transforming both the story and potential of the movie. "When it became 'Deadpool & Wolverine', it became a whole different story, and the majesty of the movie, the fun of the movie, the story potential of the movie changed completely," Levy noted.

The film also boasts a powerhouse cast, including Matthew Macfadyen as Paradox, and Emma Corrin as Cassandra Nova. Returning characters feature "Deadpool" alums like Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle and Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, alongside some unexpected faces such as Aaron Stanford's Pyro and Jennifer Garner's rumored return as Elektra Natchios.

Produced by industry giants like Kevin Feige, Ryan Reynolds, Shawn Levy and others, "Deadpool & Wolverine" promises to be a cinematic event laden with creativity and star power.

Levy's career is bustling with high-profile ventures. From the Emmy-buzzed "All The Light We Cannot See" on Netflix to his dream project, a "Star Wars movie" and even the final season of "Stranger Things", Levy is a man in demand. But for now, all eyes are on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its latest endeavor. After all, with Deadpool and Wolverine teaming up to alter the MCU's history, who wouldn't be excited?

Don't miss the theatrical release of "Deadpool & Wolverine" exclusively on July 26. This is one Marvel movie you won't want to slip through the cracks.
