Director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Free Guy, Real Steel) has confirmed that he is reuniting with composer Rob Simonsen (Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Foxcatcher, The Whale, The Way Back, (500) Days of Summer, Nerve) on the upcoming superhero movie Deadpool 3. The film stars Ryan Reynolds in the title role, alongside Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, as well as Jennifer Garner as Elektra. Levy & Reynolds also wrote the screenplay with Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese (Zombieland) and Zeb Wells (SuperMansion). They are also producing the Marvel Studios production with Kevin Feige (Avengers: Endgame, Black Panther). Tom Holkenborg (Junkie XL) has composed the music for Tim Miller’s original Deadpool movie, while Tyler Bates has composed the score for David Leitch’s Deadpool 2. Simonsen has previously scored Levy’s last feature, The Adam Project and also worked on the Levy-produced fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things. Deadpool 3 is scheduled to be released in theaters nationwide on May 3, 2024 by 20th Century Studios.

    Curious of the musical style, will it be rock or more orchestral like the composer’s usual outings
