Deadpool 3s Absence From Disneys Release Schedule Is Raising Eyebrows

In July of 2023, shortly after SAG-AFTRA joined the WGA on the picket lines against studios — and more on that in a bit — it was announced that “Deadpool 3” was halting production, disappointing fans everywhere. Not only are Jackman and Garner set to reprise their roles from the “X-Men” franchise and “Daredevil,” respectively, but on-set photos that were taken before the strikes went into effect showed a potential throwdown between Jackman’s Wolverine and Reynolds’ masked vigilante.
