Deadpool and Wolverine whip out the big guns in latest trailer


Deadpool & Wolverine has seemed fairly lighthearted in most of the teasers Marvel has dropped so far, but the movie’s latest trailer has a promising edge to it.

Rather than focusing on Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), Deadpool & Wolverine’s new trailer is actually more about a Wolverine variant (Hugh Jackman) who somehow failed his universe’s team of X-Men before the whole thing was obliterated. It’s still wildly unclear how Wolverine and Deadpool manage to end up fighting in the ruins of the 20th Century Fox lot or which reality the movie’s Wolverine comes from.

But the trailer makes it seem like it all has something to do with Cassandra Nova (Emma Corrin), a powerful mutant with a complicated relationship to Charles Xavier and a penchant for using her powers to make people do unspeakable things. It’s actually kind of nice to see that Deadpool & Wolverine won’t just be dick jokes and F-bombs as its heroes race across the multiverse to destroy a woman whose thoughts can kill. And it’s even nicer to see that when Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters on July 26th, Logan’s gonna have his guns out while rocking that ridiculous costume.
