Last Updated on: June 4th, 2024

Deadpool 3“Deadpool & Wolverine”(Deadpool 3) is shaping up to be a groundbreaking addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as it’s touted to be the franchise’s first R-rated film. The movie is directed by Shawn Levy, known for his work on “Free Guy” and “The Adam Project,” and sees the return of Ryan Reynolds in his iconic role as the wisecracking mercenary. Adding to the excitement, Hugh Jackman is coming out of his Wolverine retirement to co-star in the film, which suggests a dynamic buddy-cop type of pairing between the two beloved characters from the Marvel universe.

The writers of the first two Deadpool films, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, are back to pen the script for this third installment. The narrative is teased as a “fish-out-of-water” story that drops Deadpool into a more grounded world, introducing multiversal and time travel elements, which aligns with the MCU’s broader themes. Fans can anticipate the involvement of characters from across the MCU, including those from “Loki” such as Mobius and Miss Minutes, and possible cameos from other heroes as Deadpool navigates this new universe.

The movie promises to maintain the irreverent tone and R-rated content that fans have come to love, with director Shawn Levy confirming that the violence will be “in your face and hardcore.” This is particularly significant as it involves Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, a character known for his own brutal fighting style. The film’s plot is expected to have significant implications for the MCU’s Multiverse storyline, potentially being a catalyst for Phase 5 and Phase 6.

As for the release, “Deadpool & Wolverine” is scheduled to hit theaters on September 6, 2024. Although there’s no confirmed release date for the trailer, given the MCU’s varied schedule for trailer releases, it could likely drop towards the end of summer, closer to its theatrical debut. Additionally, the film’s runtime is currently unknown but is expected to be around the two-hour mark, similar to its predecessors.
