Filming for Deadpool 3 has resumed, following the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike.

The third movie in the Ryan Reynolds led superhero series had previously shut down production in line with strike guidelines.

However, The Wrap reported that Disney co-chairman Alan Bergman has now confirmed that filming has restarted on the project during a Disney Town Hall session.

Alongside Reynolds reprising his role as the titular assassin Wade Wilson, the third film will also see the actor joined by Hugh Jackman for a surprise outing as Wolverine — with a first look image of the pair in character being released earlier this year.
