Deadpool and Wolverine Trailer Reminds Us Why It’s R-Rated

Keep your friends close but keep your frenemies closer-er, because you never know when you might need each other to save the universe…or universes.

Marvel’s favorite unlikely team is back in the second trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine, the third installment in the Deadpool series and the first set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ahead of the trailer, Ryan Reynolds shared the post-credits scene from Deadpool 2 (2018), which showed Deadpool traveling through time to “clean up the timelines” — which alluded to the events in Deadpool and Wolverine and included a key moment when Deadpool said to Wolverine: “Eventually, you’re going to hang up the claws, and it’s going to make a lot of people very sad. But one day, your old pal Wade is going to ask you to get back in the saddle again. And when he does, say yes.”

As seen in the trailer below, Deadpool finds Wolverine in a bar sulking away when the bartender tells Wolverine he’s not welcomed here, he’s not welcomed anywhere. “Now get the fuck out of my bar.” Before he’s able to secure one more drink, Deadpool shows us and demands he leaves with him, Wolverine unable to fight him because of “limp dick of the claws,” they leave together where we learn that Wolverine is in deep pain and Deadpool is about to lose everyone he’s ever loved…including Vanessa who made an appearance in the previous trailer.

To be clear, this is not the Wolverine who died at the end of Logan, the TVA makes it very clear by referring to Wolverine as ‘THIS Wolverine’. He also shares “this Wolverine let down the entire world,” which explains why the bartender in the beginning of the trailer stated his disappointment in him and why he seemed to have a death wish when Deadpool pulled a gun on him.

To the tune of Madonna’s ‘Like a Prayer,’ Deadpool declares, “I’m about to lose everything that I’ve ever cared about,” Deadpool tells Wolverine, to which Wolverine responds, “Not my fucking problem.” Is that what you said when your world went to shit?” Deadpool retorts, provoking Wolverine to strike his crotch with those claws before Deadpool shoots him several times in the torso.

The threequel stars Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and brings back Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, who fans last saw die in 2017’s sendoff movie “Logan.” The movie will introduce the iconic claw-bearing mutant and Merc With a Mouth to the MCU.

“Deadpool and Wolverine” comes nearly six years after the release of “Deadpool 2,” during which time we’ve seen the wrap of Fox’s “X-Men” film series and Disney’s complete acquisition of 20th Century Fox (which held the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four — the latter now also getting its first MCU feature film.)
