This massive success has reportedly got Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige thinking. He’s so impressed with the film that he’s considering shaking things up and adding Deadpool and Wolverine to Avengers 5, instead of saving them for the later Avengers: Secret Wars like initially planned. 

Deadpool & Wolverine May Return Before Avengers: Secret Wars

The buzz around the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine movie is reaching new heights, fueled by an exciting trailer and fans’ eager anticipation.

According to insider Daniel Richtman, President Kevin Feige was highly impressed by what he saw in Deadpool and Wolverine. As a result, there are discussions about incorporating these iconic characters into the upcoming Avengers installment. Originally, the plan was to introduce Deadpool and Wolverine in the Secret Wars movie, but Feige seems inclined to fast-track their entry into Avengers 5.

The trailer throws us into a multiverse mess. The Time Variance Authority, those TVA guys from Loki, are after Deadpool, calling him “special” and offering him a chance to be a “hero among heroes.” The trailer however doesn’t give us a whole lot of Wolverine action. 

It’s worth noting that Deadpool & Wolverine marks a significant shift for the Deadpool franchise, being the first film to be officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) after the previous films were produced by 20th Century Fox. Moreover, it will be the first R-rated film in MCU history. 


Deadpool 3 Becomes the Most Watched MCU Trailer

The trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming film, Deadpool & Wolverine, has made a historic impact by amassing a remarkable 365 million views within the first 24 hours of its release, according to the statistics shared by The Hollywood Reporter. This staggering figure has propelled it to the status of the most-watched movie trailer in history, surpassing the previously held record by Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.

This broad inclusion of viewership metrics underscores the widespread excitement and anticipation surrounding the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer.

With this much hype and millions of fans buzzing with questions, it looks like Ryan Reynolds might just dethrone Tom Holland at the box office, too. Get ready for some serious box office crushing and an R-rated explosion of action and humor when Deadpool & Wolverine finally slices its way onto the big screen!
