The Marvel Cinematic Universe, in its final stages (we’re currently halfway through the fifth), sometimes feels less like an entertainment franchise and more like a sociological experiment conducted by Harvard University to see how many times a fictional world can fold in on itself, like a multi-billion dollar cootie catcher. By extension, Deadpool is grabbing some crazy MCU cooties in the new hyper-self-referential trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine as he is recruited textually and metatextually into Disney’s superhero empire. As performers of Loki‘s Time Variance Authority crashes Wade Wilson’s (Ryan Reynolds) birthday party, he looks at their time and says, “Pig is nothing new to me, my friend.” But it’s for Disney,” in a classic fourth wall break. It’s a dead Pool a movie first and an MCU movie, uh, Also first, and these two simultaneous and contradictory truths will lead to glistening, ankle-like friction.
Deadpool’s propensity for reality-hopping metahumor is a perfect fit for the situation he finds himself in here, as TVA agent Paradox (Matthew MacFadyen) broadcasts footage from past Marvel films, including The Avengers, to update Deadpool. “Your little cinematic universe is about to change forever,” he says. “I am the Messiah. I am… Wonder Jesus. Following the box office underperformance of Wonders And Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the mixed dividends of their Disney+ original series and the whole Kang enigma, Deadpool might just be as good a Lord and Savior as any.
The previous two dead Pool the films were released under 20th Century Fox before Disney fully acquired the studio in 2019, so they existed alongside the main line X-Men films as Marvel adaptations in a separate Marvel-based cinematic universe. There, the character was allowed to be rude and irreverent and commit harsh acts.A. violence, giving the films a shaggier, more edgy tone than the films in the MCU machine. Deadpool and Wolverine will be Disney and the MCU’s first R-rated film, starring Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine (who moved to R-rated and realistic violence in the 2017s). Logan) is also ported to the new CU. He’s only teased in this teaser; we see the back of his head in a meeting room and his distinctive shadow looming over Deadpool as he rests in the desert. We don’t know much about what their team-up will look like, but I pray to Marvel Jesus that a musical number will be involved. Deadpool and Wolverine comes out July 26.
