    Just when fans thought the Merc with a Mouth couldn't shock them anymore, enter the age of unexpected leaks! And at the center of this cinematic tempest? Director Shawn Levy and his vision for "Deadpool 3."

    When Leaks Steal the Limelight

    Hold onto your chimichangas, because the buzz around 'Deadpool 3' has reached fever pitch. Fans were on cloud nine when they heard Hugh Jackman, the adamantium-clawed legend, would reprise his Wolverine role alongside the audacious Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds. However, the realm of leaks gave fans a premature glimpse and had Shawn Levy speaking out.

    As reported by FandomWire, in a twist that Hollywood couldn't even script, the internet played its mischievous part, exposing some behind-the-scenes action. Levy, ever the sport, remarked at the Toronto International Film Festival, "We went to great lengths to not shoot it on sound stages with digital environments. The internet has proven that by (leaking) pictures of our shoot. Thank you internet! We wanted something that felt grounded, real.”

    But before fans could even catch their breath, Hollywood strikes threw a spanner in the works. 'Deadpool 3,' unfortunately, hangs in the balance alongside other projects like 'Thunderbolts' and 'Blade,' awaiting their moments under the spotlight.

    For those that love their action sprinkled with irreverence, the 'Deadpool' series is a cinematic treat. And with the third installment under Levy's direction - a man known for his success with Ryan Reynolds in 'Free Guy' and 'The Adam Project' - expectations are sky-high.

    While fans will miss Zazie Beetz's Domino and Josh Brolin's Cable, the return of Jackman's Wolverine is arguably the movie's crowning jewel. Despite production being hit by strikes, Levy, in conversation with Deadline, pulled the curtain back just a tad, revealing the film's essence. "Our movie is raw, audacious, very much R-rated,”** he shared, adding a dash of excitement about the undeniable chemistry on set, stating, "that chemistry is, I have to say, spoiler alert, as relentlessly awesome as we had all hoped it would be."

    The anticipation is palpable. While we're kept in the dark about specific plot twists, one thing's for sure - with Reynolds, Jackman, and Levy at the forefront, 'Deadpool 3' promises to be an unforgettable ride.

    Ladies and gents, mark your calendars! 'Deadpool 3,' the Merc's next adventure, is slated for a May 2024 release.
