Shawn Levy Didn’t Want To Give Deadpool 3 The Marvel Green Screen Treatment – /Film

For all the wonders The Volume is capable of, we’ve already seen the limits of the technology in shows like “The Mandalorian” and the MCU film “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” Films like “Thor: Love and Thunder” have similarly exposed the problems with trying to realize massive locations using the restricted physical space of studio sets with green screen backdrops. Levy acknowledged as much in an interview with Total Film Magazine, waving off the film’s set photo leaks as a regrettable but necessary cost to avoid turning “Deadpool 3” into, potentially, another green screen mess:

“It bums me out that photos have leaked online. But this is the price we pay for committing to real locations. I made a decision very early in prep that even though Deadpool is now in the MCU, I didn’t want another Marvel movie shot on a green screen stage with digital set extensions.”

To be sure, anyone who’s ever shot a film or TV series on location can relate to the lack of control that comes with that, whether it’s photo leaks, uncontrollable weather, or if you’re shooting a “Dune” sequel in the desert, “sand-trauma.” But when it came to Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With a Mouth and Jackman’s claw-slashing mutant, Levy felt they deserved the red carpet treatment (so to speak):

“And Deadpool and Wolverine are iconic Marvel characters; more specifically, iconic Marvel-of-the-Fox-era characters. We’re not going to pretend: ‘Oh, we snap our fingers, and suddenly that Fox legacy doesn’t exist, and it shaped a lot of what we now know as the MCU.’ Fox also shaped Ryan’s career, Hugh’s career and my career. So there’s a lot of history there, and there’s a lot of Marvel history at Fox. And certainly that’s a part of our storytelling.”
