The first teaser trailer for Deadpool 3, now officially titled Deadpool and Wolverine, has arrived to save Marvel (Deadpool’s words, not mine) and take shots at Disney. The story will pick up after the events of Deadpool 2 and brings the loud-mouthed mercenary back into the action after discovering that there’s an entire cinematic universe of superheroes to meet – including the long-awaited return of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.
The first trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine is heavy on glorious R-rated violence and meta-humour which is perfectly on-brand for the character. However, this time he’s been let loose on the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the multiverse, clashing swords (or claws) with Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds will return to play the merc with a mouth alongside other returning cast members including Morena Baccarin as Vanessa and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
New cast members include Jennifer Garner as Elektra, Lewis Tan as Shatterstar with Emma Corrin (The Crown, A Murder at the End of the World) and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession, Death at a Funeral) in unknown roles. Patrick Stewart is also mentioned in the cast listing though it’s unclear if he’ll be reprising his role as Professor X or playing a completely different part.
The good news is that Deadpool and Wolverine will not be softened in the slightest after moving to Disney. It will be the first R-rated movie in the MCU and retain its gory violence, language and self-awareness that made the previous movies so entertaining to watch. It’s also the only MCU movie currently scheduled to release this year as Marvel Studios shuffles around its future plans.
Deadpool and Wolverine (known back then as Deadpool 3) was one of the big Hollywood movies that was forced to halt production following last year’s writers and actors strikes. It resumed filming in November 2023 and wrapped up production shortly after.
Deadpool and Wolverine arrives in cinemas on 26 July 2024. Check out the new trailer below:
