The next film installment in the Deadpool franchise is gearing up for production. As such, stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are prepping for their roles. The two have begun working out for Deadpool 3 and Ryan Reynolds shared some new training photos.
As you can see below, from Instagram, Ryan Reynolds is looking quite jacked as he prepares for Deadpool 3. Although the actor will most likely be suited up for a majority of the film – it’s clear that he’ll still have some ripped muscle beneath his supersuit.
Here’s what he wrote in the caption for the Deadpool 3 training photos:
“I’m not training for Deadpool. I’m training to spend several months with Hugh Jackman – who’s not nearly as nice as everyone thinks.”

Of course, this is just part of the friendly rivalry that Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have been engaging in since their collaboration for Deadpool 3 was announced. The two have done a terrific job at poking fun at one another and getting sarcastic jabs in nearly every interview. It’s no doubt a warmup for fans after they see the much more intense rivalry of having Jackman and Reynolds as Wolverine and Deadpool, respectively.
Hopefully we’ll have more details regarding the production of the film soon. Now that their training is further along – it shouldn’t be much longer before the film starts shopping. By then there should be more exciting cast and plot details available for fans of the franchise. Until then, however, it’s nice to see Ryan Reynolds getting ready for his fan-favorite role.
Shawn Levy is set to direct Deadpool 3 from a screenplay written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux previously worked on the film’s screenplay.
Deadpool 3 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 8, 2024. Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional updates on the highly-anticipated blockbuster as we have them.
