Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has revealed he is getting back into superhero shape for the Marvel antihero’s upcoming arrival in the MCU.
Following Disney’s acquisition of Fox’s movie studios, the film rights for Marvel characters such as the X-Men and the Fantastic Four have been returned to Marvel Studios. Deadpool’s association with the former group means Deadpool 3 will be taking place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ryan Reynolds recently appeared in images shared by trainer Don Saladino, revealing the Deadpool actor was hitting the gym for the upcoming sequel, possibly suggesting filming on Deadpool 3 starts soon.
Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort
In a recent Instagram post, Don Saladino can be seen accompanying Ryan Reynolds for a training session with the caption “and so it begins…” hinting that the actor is shaping up for Deadpool 3.
To dispel any doubts, Saladino included two emojis – a red dot and a pair of crossed swords, referencing Deadpool’s iconic red suit and dual katanas. While no details are given on what fans can expect from Deadpool 3, Reynolds wouldn’t be training unless the start of production was imminent.

Since the move to Marvel Studios, writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been working with Ryan Reynolds on the story and script for Deadpool 3. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently said Marvel are hoping to elevate Deadpool 3 in the way they have with threequels in other MCU franchises.
Here is the synopsis for the previous film, Deadpool 2:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Directed by David Leitch from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.
Deadpool 2 is available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the upcoming sequel from Marvel Studios, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content.
