“Deadpool” younger cast members have closed deals to come back for Shawn Levy’s third Installment, Brianna Hildebrand and Shioli Kutsuna are both returned.
Hildebrand reprises her role from the first two films as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, the mutant cohort of Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth, with the ability to generate nuclear explosions. Kutsuna plays Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s girlfriend Yukio, a Japanese mutant ninja introduced in “Deadpool 2.”
Other “Deadpool“ veterans returning for the film include Karan Soni, Leslie Uggams, Morena Baccarin, Stefan Kapicic and Rob Delaney, who respectively portray Deadpool’s cab driver sidekick Dopinder, his roommate Blind Al, his fiancée Vanessa (who was killed and then revived in the sequel), the metallic mutant Colossus and human X-Force member Peter. Newcomers to the franchise will include Hugh Jackman (who reprises his role as Wolverine), as well as Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen.
Plot details for “Deadpool 3“ are under wraps, though past installments have followed the misadventures of Wade Wilson (Reynolds), the foul-mouthed mercenary who transforms into the immortal superhero known as Deadpool following a disfiguring science experiment.
Reynolds, Levy, Paul Wernick, Rhett Reese and Zeb Wells have scripted “Deadpool 3.” Reynolds will also produce alongside Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
“Deadpool” stood out from the pack in early 2016, Ryan Reynolds’ passion project earned a whopping $765 million worldwide from a $58 million budget. Its sequel would earn $782 million on a $110 million budget.
Kutsuna appeared in Netflix’s “Murder Mystery“ and will next be seen in the second season of Invasion on Apple TV+..
The film is slated for release on November 8, 2024.
