Ryan Reynolds only wanted to make Deadpool 3 if he could bring back an old colleague



Deadpool has seemed like Ryan Reynolds’ passion project since the first part. After all, he brought fan favorite Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman, on board for the third part. But Reynolds had one condition for Deadpool 3 and that was his preferred director.

Which director is it about? In an interview with Deadline, Shawn Levy, the director of Deadpool & Wolverinethat Ryan Reynolds would only do the latest film if he could get Levy to direct.

On the set of The Adam Projecta film the two made together, Reynolds is said to have asked him if he wanted to direct Deadpool 3, because he would only make the film with Levy as director.

I remember him saying: I know, I know, you’ll say no and I just said, I will not say no, I will definitely say yes. And that was before I knew we were getting the greatest gift for a Deadpool movie, Hugh Jackman.
