From CEO of Waystar to Paradox in the TVA. During Sunday’s Super Bowl, Marvel and Disney debuted the first trailer for “Deadpool 3” – officially known as “Deadpool & Wolverine” – which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Emmy Award-winning “Succession” star Matthew Macfadyen. In the new film, the erstwhile Tom Wambsgans plays a senior official in the Time Variance Authority, identified as Paradox by the trailer subtitles, who helps explain to Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth how he finally fits into the official Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.

Due out July 26, “Deadpool & Wolverine” is the first Deadpool film released by Disney since the corporation purchased 21st Century Fox in 2019. That means the R-rated superhero is finally able to interact with the MCU heroes fans know and love, hence the appearance of the TVA which was heavily featured in “Loki.” “Deadpool & Wolverine” also brings Jackman back to the Marvel world as Wolverine, the first time he’s played the character since “Logan” in 2017. 

More from GoldDerby

“Deadpool & Wolverine” is the only MCU film due out in 2024, after Marvel sputtered somewhat in 2023 with “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and “The Marvels” widely underperforming with audiences and critics (“Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3,” the studio’s third of three releases in 2023, was a commercial and critical success.) Expect the fact that “Deadpool & Wolverine” is positioned somewhat as a studio savior to play a role in the film, particularly since Deadpool is so meta. In the trailer, he calls himself “Marvel Jesus.” This being the first R-rated Marvel film, the trailer also includes some risque jokes and bloody violence. Rawr. 

“Deadpool & Wolverine” is due out July 26.
