Deadpool 3 is one of the most anticipated projects that Marvel Studios will bring to the big screen in the near future. The upcoming film will bring Ryan Reynolds‘ Wade Wilson and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in one frame. In fact, the shooting of this flick was underway and fans got some glimpses of the duo from the sets. However, it all came to a halt when actors joined writers on the picket lines, delaying things for about four months.

Just hours back, the SAF-AFTRA union shared the relieving news with fans about their agreement, bringing in cheers from everywhere. And with that, the Deadpool 3 team can start production this week.

The Canadian superstar has stood strong with the actor’s guild in the past months, despite taking a jab at their Halloween celebration guidelines, and it seems his and the entire fraternity’s contribution has finally paid off.
