‘Deadpool And Wolverine’ Sets Up A New ‘Avengers’ Movie With A Cool Easter Egg

A super secret war!

Deadpool and Wolverine Deadpool 3 Wade Wilson Ryan Reynolds MCU

The Deadpool and Wolverine trailer rocked the world when it debuted during last night’s Super Bowl LVIII between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. However, it seems Wade Wilson’s first dip into the Marvel Cinematic Universe also hid a shocking Easter egg of the upcoming Avengers movie Secret Wars.

Fans could not have been happier with the Deadpool and Wolverine trailer, delivering everything they wanted and more. While the footage had some obvious ties to the broader MCU, one Easter egg slipped by the eyes of many fans. Specifically, the final shot of the trailer held a tattered issue of Secret Wars #5, written by Jonathan Hickman and drawn by Esad Ribic.

It’s no secret that Secret Wars is coming to the MCU, so this doesn’t confirm anything fans didn’t already know. However, the Easter egg does suggest that Deadpool and Wolverine will have some ties to the event, or at the very least acknowledge it in a meta way. Though given how crazy this trailer already was, it wouldn’t be shocking to see the film directly lead into the event!

Who else is attached to the Deadpool threequel?

Shawn Levy is directing Deadpool 3 after working with Ryan Reynolds on Free Guy and The Adam Project. The upcoming Marvel Studios project also marks a reunion between Levy and Hugh Jackman as the two worked together on Real Steel.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are developing the Deadpool 3 script after penning the first two installments in the series. The Molyneux sisters worked on a previous draft of the project.

Deadpool 3 is currently expected to be released on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
