"I've always wanted to ride with you, Log. Deadpool... and Wolverine."

Deadpool & Wolverine is an upcoming superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same names. The film is a sequel to the 20th Century Fox films Deadpool and Deadpool 2. It is the thirty-fourth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the ninth installment of Phase Five. The film is set to be released on July 26, 2024.[2]

The film is directed by Shawn Levy and stars Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, Hugh Jackman as James Howlett/Logan/Wolverine, Emma Corrin as Cassandra Nova, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle, Rob Delaney as Peter W., Leslie Uggams as Althea/Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, and Matthew Macfadyen as Paradox.


Marvel Studios presents their most significant mistake to date—"Deadpool & Wolverine." A listless Wade Wilson toils away in civilian life. His days as the morally flexible mercenary, Deadpool, behind him. When his homeworld faces an existential threat, Wade must reluctantly suit-up again with an even more reluctantlier… reluctanter? Reluctantest? He must convince a reluctant Wolverine to— Fuck. Synopses are so fucking stupid.[4]
