Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy teases that the movie will have a different title. Between Deadpool making his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, and Hugh Jackman reprising the role of Wolverine from the X-Men movies as he faces off against the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool 3 has become one of the most highly anticipated projects not only for Marvel, but for the entire entertainment industry in 2024. The first trailer is expected to be released during Super Bowl LVIII.

While speaking with Screen Rant on the red carpet for the Directors Guild of America Awards, Levy was asked about the title for Deadpool 3. The director playfully teases that a different title could be revealed soon, but noted that he has to be careful with what he shares at the risk of “my own murder” at the hands of Reynolds. Read Levy’s response below:

Not yet. You see, it’s the first pause in this interview, because that’s how careful I need to be. Not yet, but maybe it will soon. Was that coy enough? I feel like I was going for like disingenuous coy. But I truly love my collaboration and friendship with Ryan Reynolds, and if I tell you anything, that friendship will end in murder. [Laughs] I don’t want my own murder, especially by a nice Canadian like Ryan Reynolds.
