“Deadpool & Wolverine” Official Trailer Unleashes Mutant Mayhem on Marvel

The official Deadpool & Wolverine trailer has arrived, and it opens by riffing on a classic moment in Logan (Hugh Jackman) lore. When we first met Logan in 2000’s X-Men movie, he was cage fighting in a bar, a feral, ferocious mutant with nothing and nobody to lose. When he wanted to have a few (dozen) drinks afterward, he was told that “his kind” (mutants” weren’t allowed to drink there. Now, 24 years later, we find Logan once again in a bar, once again being told his kind isn’t welcome; what’s different this time around is, for starters, the language—an F-bomb makes it clear that Deadpool & Wolverine, as promised, another R-rated installment in the franchise. The second difference is this time, Logan actually does have a friend in the world, sort of, and his name is Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), who says, “Hi Peanut, I’m going to need you to come with me right now.” And just like that, Deadpool & Wolverine remixes a legendary moment in Logan’s life for laughs. Perfection.

It turns out, Wade Wilson has popped up in Wolverine’s world because he needs the surly mutant’s help in saving his own. The trailer is absolutely chock-a-block with adult languages, adult situations, and childish humor—precisely how we want and love our Deadpool films—only now it boasts Jackman’s beloved, be-clawed mutant in the long-awaited frenemy pairing with Reynolds’ Merc with the Mouth.

The trailer also reveals, for the first time, Emma Corrin’s villain, Cassandra Nova, who can be seen matching Wolverine’s fury with abundant powers she seems almost bored to use on him. She’ll be a potent enemy.

Joining Jackman, Reynolds, and Corrin is Matthew MacFayden as the Time Variance Authority’s Mr. Paradox, and returning stars like Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Rob Delaney as Peter, and Morena Baccarin as Vanessa. The trailer is a blast and indicates why Marvel Studios felt pretty great about having only Deadpool & Wolverine on their 2024 slate—this movie is going to be huge.

Check out the trailer below. Deadpool & Wolverine slashes its way into theaters on July 26.
