However, two months after the SAG-AFTRA strike caused a halt in the production of many movies, it looks like the strike may be nearing its end after the WGA strike has finally reached an agreement with the studios. While that may be good news itself, Ryan Reynolds fans may have another thing to look forward to.

After Deadpool 3 was halted mid-production and removed from Disney’s release schedule, fans were unsure of when to expect the hilarious comedy in theatres. Now, months after the end of the WGA strike, they finally have an update that will surely lighten their moods.

Deadpool 3 is one of the highly anticipated projects of this year. And the strike halting its production was nothing less of a nightmare for fans. However, the WGA union reaching an agreement has brought in a new update for the movie. Recently, Variety reported that after SAG-AFTRA reaches an agreement, the production of Deadpool 3 will be prioritized and fast-tracked back into production. The news indeed is an update to look out for as the film was halted mid-way in production back in July.

In fact, fans were not the only ones who have been waiting for an update. Recently the director, Shawn Levy, even shared a picture of him and his leading men, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. However, it was the caption that may have caused this entire situation to unfold, as it hinted at the fact that the trio wanted to get back to shooting, and it looks like that may have happened sooner than expected.
