First “Deadpool 3” Image Finds Ryan Reynolds’ Merc With the Mouth Re-Teaming With Dogpool

Deadpool 3 is on every Marvel fan’s must-see list next year for several reasons, but number one among them is the fact that Ryan Reynolds’ chatty, foul-mouthed superhero is finally teaming up with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. (Yes, yes, Wolverine died in James Logan’s 2017 banger Logan, but there are plenty of reasons why Jackman is able to reprise the role.) While the Deadpool/Wolverine team-up is the main course in Deadpool 3, it’s not the only duo worth getting excited for. We’ve got our first image from the film, and it reveals another dream pairing—Deadpool and Dogpool.

The image comes straight from Dogpool’s Instagram account, and it reveals the two old souls together again, both looking spry and ready for action. Dogpool is licking Wade Wilson’s face—a face only Dogpool and Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) could love—with a caption that comes straight from the franchise’s reliable insult factory.

Deadpool 3 is back in production thanks to the resolution of the strikes, so you can expect more images and reveals in the coming weeks courtesy of Dogpool, Reynolds, and Jackman. The third film in the franchise—the first since Disney acquired 21st Century Fox—is directed by longtime Reynolds’ collaborator Shawn Levy, who co-wrote the film with Reynolds alongside Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Zeb Wells. Despite the fact that Deadpool 3 is officially a Marvel Studios film, Levy and Kevin Feige have both gone on record saying it will remain as hardcore as ever.

Reynolds and Jackman star, with a slew of franchise alums returning, including Baccarin as Wade’s paramour Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Rob Delaney as Peter. Newcomers to the Deadpool world are Jennifer Garner, reprising her role as Elektra, and Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen in undisclosed roles.

Deadpool 3 is due in theaters on July 26, 2024.
