Deadpool & Wolverine: Marvel Movie Gets New TV Spot

Deadpool pokes Wolverine and their road trip gets rolling.

Deadpool & Wolverine has a brand-new TV spot this week to tease the massive summer blockbuster. A lot of the footage is from earlier trailers. But, there are two new bits, one featuring Logan poking Dedadpool when they first meet in that bar from an earlier clip. And, the other is during their drive through The Void where Wolverine is telling Wade a signal, or maybe to stop annoying him in the car. Either way, the promotional hype train for Deadpool & Wolverine has been full-steam ahead since that first trailer at the Super Bowl. Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have been breathlessly teasing different aspects in the movie on social media. (The latest teases concern a hat with a strange Avengers logo spraypainted over with an Anarchy symbol…)

The summer box office has been heating up as of late. There are some massive wins in the last few weekends. Inside Out 2 just crossed $1 billion, A Quiet Place: Day One is off to a franchise-best start, and Bad Boys: Ride or Die drastically over-performed expectations. After a period of incessant hand-wringing, the box office looks like a pretty normal summer after 2020. But, the true moment of calm might come after Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters. Right now, observers and analysts have the MCU's only 2024 movie pegged for $200 million on opening weekend. Some fans have skepticism about that number, but only time will tell.

Deadpool & Wolverine's biggest appeal is uniting Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. But, a lot of fans are also looking forward to some swan songs for their favorite X-Men series characters. On The Official Marvel Podcast, MCU architect Kevin Feige teased the elements of Deadpool movies that fans love still being there. "We're very proud of it. The entire thing is just as gory and just as foul-mouthed and just as R-Rated as you would expect, but it is also extremely endearing and emotional," Feige mused. "I think people are going to leave excited to go and watch it again."

"We had nothing to do with the first two extremely successful Deadpool movies. Marvel Studios had nothing to do with those," Feige would add. "So, in a way, we were playing on Ryan's turf. We were playing on somebody else's sandbox. The other way is that they were coming into our sandbox. We wanted to make it unique with the blending of those styles.

The Marvel president continued, "It was really, really nice the way Shawn Levy, our director, and Ryan were able to come in and embrace the best of what Ryan had pioneered with Deadpool and what Hugh had pioneered on those early X-Men films and bringing them in a very irreverent way, which people are already starting to piece together based on the trailers and the presence of the Time Variance Authority into our sandbox."
