Fans of the ‘Deadpool’ movie franchise were treated to the first trailer of the third installment, titled “Deadpool & Wolverine” during Super Bowl 58.
Anticipated to debut during the Super Bowl Sunday night, the trailer is the first time fans are seeing Wade Wilson a.k.a Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Previously, 20th Century Fox created the Deadpool films, but when Disney acquired the studio in 2019, the rights to the character transferred over to marvel Studios. “Deadpool & Wolverine” will be the first R-rated film in the MCU. The film will hit theaters July 26.
Watch the trailer below.
The trailers sees Wade Wilson being recruited by the Time Variance Authority (TVA), a group introduced in the MCU in 2021 through the Disney+ series, “Loki.” Wade is met with a TVA agent, played by newcomer to the MCU, Matthew Macfadyen. He is shown a number of clips of several Marvel heroes, including Chris Evans’ Captain America and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor.
Though his face isn’t shown during the trailer, we do get a few quick glimpses of Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine, wearing his comics-accurate yellow and blue suit. Notably, this is the first time Jackman’s Wolverine will wear this suit, as his previous iteration of the X-Men character under 20th Century Fox wore a darker uniform. The pair will seemingly work together to complete the mission the TVA recruited Wade to do. As he does the first two installments of the series, Deadpool breaks the fourth wall throughout the trailer, often looking directly at the camera and referencing Disney.
