Deadpool & Wolverine (movie trailer).

Ready your chimichangas and sharpen those claws! Deadpool & Wolverine is set to blast onto screens on July 26, 2024, and it’s shaping up to be the most riotous rendezvous in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) yet. Directed by Shawn Levy and starring the indefatigable duo of Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, this film promises a chaotic cocktail of humor, action, and just a smidgen of existential crisis.

Our beloved Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, is rudely plucked from his “quiet” life by the Time Variance Authority (TVA), and trust us, they weren’t ready for him. Teaming up, or rather, clashing with Wolverine, the duo are on a mission that could rewrite the history of the MCU. And knowing Deadpool, ‘rewrite’ could very well involve crayons, explosives, or explosive crayons.

Reynolds, who not only stars but also co-writes, portrays Deadpool in his quintessential style—part sass, part sauce, and completely unhinged. This time, he brings even more zest to the character, adding a ‘samurai-based’ variant, because why not? With swords and snark, Deadpool is not just dropped, but rather cannonballed into the “very sane world” of the MCU. Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is busy being everyone’s favorite grumpy Canadian with a heart of gold and a skeleton of adamantium. Jackman, who bulked up by munching through a staggering 8,000 calories a day, describes Logan and Deadpool’s dynamic as “opposites with a quarreling dynamic,” which translates to cinematic gold. His role also includes the character’s alter ego, Patch, proving Jackman might actually be capable of being in two places at once.

The ensemble cast includes Emma Corrin as the ominously powerful Cassandra Nova and Morena Baccarin returning as Vanessa, ensuring that the emotional stakes are as high as the action scenes. Not to mention, the line-up includes a motley crew from Deadpool’s past adventures, including the understated heroics of Peter (Rob Delaney) and the always entertaining Blind Al (Leslie Uggams).

Behind the scenes, the journey to this film was as dramatic as its plot. After the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney, the fate of Deadpool in the MCU hung by a thread. Enter Marvel Studios, who not only saved the day but also promised to retain the R-rating that makes Deadpool, well, Deadpool.

Filming stretched across picturesque locations in England, and despite a brief halt due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike, resumed to wrap up with a flair worthy of its lead character. With all the on-set antics likely fueled by Reynolds and Jackman’s off-screen bromance, one hopes the blooper reel is as long as the movie itself.

As “Deadpool & Wolverine” prepares to slice through box office records and potentially the fabric of cinematic reality, one thing is certain: this film isn’t just a crossover; it’s a whirlwind of meta-humor, heartfelt moments, and enough Deadpool antics to keep the TVA busy for decades. Buckle up, folks—it’s going to be a bumpy, hilarious ride!
