The first trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine was released during the Super Bowl last night and that’s now been followed by an official gallery of stills from the Marvel Studios movie.
Those primarily highlight key moments from the red-band sneak peek but we’re hearing a green-band version – with more new footage – could be around the corner. For now, though, this preview offers plenty of exciting hints about what’s to come.
At the start of the trailer, we see a host of familiar faces from the first two Deadpool movies, including Blind Al, Shatterstar, Vanessa, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Colossus. It’s then that the TVA arrives, and seeing as there were once rumours he was in talks for a role, we can’t help but wonder whether Matthew Macfadyen’s character was once meant to be Owen Wilson’s Mobius.
Earth-616 is highlighted on the TVA’s screens, with all signs pointing to Wade Wilson being inserted into Avengers: Age of Ultron’s snowy opening sequence.
The villainous Cassandra Nova is shown from behind, as is Patch, the moniker Wolverine adopted when he donned an eyepatch and hid out in Madripoor. That doesn’t look like Hugh Jackman, though, and some believe it could be Daniel Radcliffe’s rumoured cameo as a Logan Variant!
We don’t yet know why the Merc with the Mouth appears to be battling the TVA, but yes, that is indeed Alioth who snatches up one of the agents. Aaron Stanford, meanwhile, reprises his role as Pyro from the original X-Men movies.
As for the threequel’s title, Deadpool & Wolverine, it seems the original idea was to go with “Deadpool & Friend” before revealing the movie’s true name down the line. The joke was spoiled in advance thanks to trademark listings, a shame, but we’d say it’s much smarter to stick Wolvie’s name in there from the start!
Check out these new stills below.
