Deadpool 3 filmmaker Shawn Levy kept his mouth sealed when it came to anything related to franchise in order to avoid death at the hands of Ryan Reynolds.

Deadline reported on Saturday that Levy, 55, arrived on the red carpet of the 76th Directors Guild of America awards at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, where he was asked about the prequel.

The Canadian film director dodged the question and didn't utter a peep about the Marvel Studios’ threequel out of fear of death, saying, "I so cherish my friendship with Ryan Reynolds, and it would be so sad if it ended in murder."

"And if I answered you with anything Deadpool-related, it would end with my untimely death, and that would be so sad," he quipped.

Nevertheless, this is not the first time the cast has been asked questions regarding the highly anticipated instalment, and they refused to say anything about the movie that will hit theatres on July 26, 2024.

However, the interaction with the publication didn’t go to waste, as Levy did reveal his next venture with the Deadpool star.

The two are reteaming on the movie Boy Band, slated to shoot at Paramount under the comedic actor’s new re-upped first-look feature deal.

While the plot is still under wraps, it is stated that Levy would direct in his fourth collaboration with Reynolds off a script written by the 47-year-old star and Jesse Andrews.

Regarding their collaborative experiences, Levy shed light, saying, "We love working together, we feel like we get each other, we make each other better."

"Boy Band is one of the few movies we’re talking about for our future collaborations," he added.
