Marvel star Ryan Reynolds sent a message to movie fans, urging them to stop sharing sneak peek photos nabbed during the filming of “Deadpool 3.”

The 47-year-old actor posted his thoughts about it in an Instagram story published Wednesday. 

“Surprises are part of the magic of theatrical movies. It’s important for us to shoot the new ‘Deadpool’ film in real, natural environments, using practical effects as opposed to making the movie indoors and digitally. Telephoto lenses continue to spoil surprises and create a difficult situation for everyone,” Reynolds wrote, per Deadline.

“Here’s hoping some of the websites and social channels hold back showing images before they’re ready,” the celebrity continued. “The film is built for audience joy — and our highest hope is to preserve as much of that magic as possible for the finished film and the big screen. Part of the reason people post spoilers is because they’re excited. I realize these aren’t real world issues and it’s firmly in the ‘good problems’ bucket. I love making this movie.”

“Deadpool 3” is a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, which will be distributed by Walt Disney Studios. It will be the 34th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and serves as a sequel to “Deadpool” (2016) and “Deadpool 2” (2018). Both previous films featured Reynolds as the lead character.


The original “Deadpool” earned $782.6 million and was one of the highest-grossing films of 2016. It also became the highest-grossing R-rated film at the time. The sequel, released two years later, was also a critical and financial success. 

The story is based upon an unconventional anti-hero, a former Special Forces operative turned mercenary named Wade Wilson. He acquires healing powers after an experiment gone wrong and adopts the alter ego Deadpool.

Marvel is banking on a hit after several flops, including “The Marvels” earlier this year. Disney CEO Bob Iger recently said that the studio has made “too many” sequels in the past. “I don’t want to apologize for making sequels,” he said. “We have to have a reason to make it beyond commerce.”

“Deadpool 3” is slated to be released in the United States on July 26, 2024, as part of Phase Five of the MCU.
