Next is Deadpool & Wolverine, the third movie in the Deadpool series. Furthermore, this will be the introduction of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Logan (Hugh Jackman) to the MCU proper. Soon, Feige was joined by the movie’s director, Shawn Levy, who introduced an extended preview. This gave the audience a first look at the live-action MCU Wolverine.

Deadpool’s co-creator, Rob Liefeld, was in attendance. In a post to social media, he stated, “The reaction for Deadpool & Wolverine was thru the roof; as I navigated the floor of Caesar’s Palace the rest of the day, exhibitors repeatedly told me how excited they were and how they expect it to do so well.” In addition, Deadpool & Wolverine‘s tie-in popcorn bucket was once again teased. But while we all remember the infamous Dune 2 popcorn bucket, this bucket is being touted as intentionally lewd. Deadpool & Wolverine arrives on July 26, 2024.

However, Feige has stated that Marvel “won’t talk more about” the asterisk until the movie is released (May 2, 2025). Which Marvel update from CinemaCon 2024 has you most excited?
