While his wife celebrated in Las Vegas, Reynolds – who plays protagonist Wade Wilson in the film – joked the trailer’s debut on social media, asking his Instagram followers: “Has everyone seen the Deadpool trailer? Also, has anyone seen my wife?”
We already knew that the film would mark the return of Jackman’s Wolverine, also known by the non-mutant name of James Logan Howlett.
The actor had played the character in a number of X-Men films and reprised it in Logan.
Reynolds and Jackman, who are close friends in real life, had announced the news with a jokey video in which Reynolds admitted he was struggling to come up with creative ideas for the latest movie before Jackman was seen walking past behind him.
Reynolds then revealed: “But we did have one idea. Hey Hugh, you wanna play Wolverine one more time?” to which Jackman replied: “Yeah, sure, Ryan”.
Cast members from the previous Deadpool films — including Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Brianna Hildebrand — will return. Meanwhile, Succession’s Matthew Macfadyen and The Crown’s Emma Corrin also joined the cast.
Deadpool & Wolverine will be the first time the movie will be made under Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) umbrella, as a part of Phase Five of the company’s superhero journey.
The two previous films were made by 21st Century Fox, which was acquired by Disney in March 2019.
Marvel lead producer Kevin Feige has assured fans that the film will remain R-rated and won’t be a “Disney-fied Deadpool”.
Originally, the film was meant to be released in cinemas across the globe on May 3, 2024.
