After a lot of production delays, Deadpool 3 finally got a release date of May 3rd, 2024. Many casting rumors and sneak peeks from the sets started to make fans believe that the movie was around the corner. However, the ongoing uprisings of SAG-AFTRA members might put a damper on fans’ expectations. Recently, a source confirmed to Deadline that the movie’s release would be moving further away from its previous scheduled date.

As per the source, the movie would not resume its production until 2024, which could lead the MCU to push the release of the upcoming movie to July. The Ryan Reynolds starrer flick would fill the slot of another anticipated Marvel movie, Captain America: Brave New World, which had a release scheduled for 26th July. However, since the Captain America movie’s production is in better shape than Deadpool 3, MCU might release it in May.
