The new poster alludes to one of the draws of “Deadpool & Wolverine.” After nine movies of Wolverine in leather jackets, white undershirts, or nothing at all, Jackman is finally going to be wearing Wolverine’s classic yellow-and-blue costume from the comics, first designed by the legendary artist John Romita Sr.

The first trailer for “Deadpool & Wolverine”  confirmed this is yet another Marvel multiverse movie. The Time Variance Authority (TVA) from “Loki” abducts Wade and dumps him in what is implied to be the Void, where “variants” from destroyed timelines are left to rot. It’s further hinted the Void is where Wade meets Wolverine, so this may not technically be the Wolverine from previous movies. (Hey, the “X-Men” movie timeline was already a mess.)

Jackman’s old co-star Patrick Stewart returned as Professor X in “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” but there’s been no word about him coming back for “Deadpool & Wolverine.” Charles Xavier’s shadow will still lean over the movie, though, because one of the confirmed villains is his evil twin sister, Cassandra Nova. Something tells me the movie may simplify her bonkers comic backstory into her being just an evil (and female) variant of Xavier.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” director Shawn Levy has never made a superhero movie before, but he’s worked with both Reynolds (“Free Guy”) and Jackman (“Real Steel”) outside of these roles. One hopes that experience will help him milk the most out of this highly anticipated pairing.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” is scheduled to release in theaters on July 26, 2024.
