The latest chapter in the Deadpool franchise wasn’t shot when the Multiverse Saga slate was unveiled by Marvel Studios at San Diego Comic-Con last month, so fans weren’t sure when production would begin.

The first Deadpool made over $782 million when it was released in 2016 and the 2018 sequel Deadpool 2 grossed an equally astonishing $785 million.

The storyline focused on the wisecracking rental rifle Wade Wilson, who becomes disfigured after receiving superpowers.

Excited: Deadpool fans posted their excitement about the photos, writing, “Oh lord.  This means trouble (smile emoji)❤️' and 'Deadpool oh god it happens (flame emoji)'
