Rumour has it the first trailer for Deadpool 3 will be released during this year’s Super Bowl. If that’s true, it means we have just a few weeks to go before seeing the Merc with the Mouth and Wolverine share the screen.
In the meantime, an early sneak peek has found its way online courtesy of promo art from the highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie!
As you can see below, Deadpool and Wolverine are put front and centre; each of them are striking comic-accurate poses, though it’s a first proper look at Wolverine’s mask we’re sure most of you will appreciate. A mock-up leaked not too long ago, but we see now that Deadpool 3 will give Logan a mask which has been lifted straight from the pages of the comics.
That includes the white eyes from the source material and we cannot wait to see how it looks in live-action. How much screen time it receives will be another matter, particularly as Marvel Studios won’t want to keep Hugh Jackman’s face covered up for long. Even a couple of fight scenes with this thing will be incredible, though!
“Like the rest of the world, I’ve waited two decades to see Wolverine in a whole movie with Deadpool,” director Shawn Levy said last year, “and I don’t know if this is our last shot at Wolverine on screen, so I was going to make goddamned sure we get the old yellow and blue just once, and that we get it right.”
He’d later explain that 3’s create team went through, “multiple, multiple, multiple iterations and fittings” to get the costume right, adding, “It also helps that I’m making this movie within the MCU, so I have access to an army of the nerdiest nerds available to a Marvel project.”
