Three years before the film’s official release, the latest Deadpool & Wolverine trailer teases a significant Easter egg for an eventual Avengers film. Featuring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, one of the greatest comic book teams ever is at last making their big-screen debuts as intended. But, one of the upcoming Avengers movies might have significant effects on the future due to the multiversal antics at play.
Wade Wilson’s birthday is featured in the opening scene of the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, along with Vanessa and the members of X-Force that Deadpool used time travel to save after Deadpool 2. As a result, Wilson appears to be facing the consequences now that the TVA has arrived. They quickly apprehend the Merc with the Mouth and plan to turn him into a hero in the larger MCU. The Deadpool and Wolverine trailer does, however, conclude with a significant spoiler for Avengers: Secret Wars, which opens in 2027.
Deadpool & Wolverine Trailer Easter Egg References Secret Wars
Just as Wolverine’s shadow looms ahead, before Hugh Jackman’s Logan reaches out to pick up Wade, a torn comic book cover catches the eye, resting on the ground beside Deadpool’s lifeless body. Surprisingly, the cover belongs to a 2015 issue of Secret Wars, a widely anticipated Marvel Comics crossover that is speculated to serve as the basis for the upcoming 2027 film Avengers: Secret Wars. This revelation adds an extra layer of excitement, as it suggests that the sixth Avengers movie will revolutionize the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, potentially even resetting the established universe since the release of Iron Man in 2008.
This early reference to Secret Wars is both astonishing and thrilling, particularly due to its meta nature. It strongly hints that the desolate realm wherein Deadpool finds himself could be none other than the Void at the End of Time, aligning with the possibility of the TVA’s involvement in Deadpool & Wolverine. Wherever this particular issue originated from, it likely originates from a reality that has been wiped from existence itself.
How Deadpool & Wolverine Could Set Up Avengers: Secret Wars
It appears that Deadpool, self-proclaimed “Marvel Jesus,” confidently asserts that he will rescue the MCU. This assertion hints at the possibility that the multiversal aspects in play might lay the groundwork for the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars. Deadpool and Wolverine could potentially be the catalysts for a major clash between different realities, similar to the events depicted in the comic book version of Secret Wars. Regardless of whether or not Deadpool & Wolverine contribute to setting up Avengers: Secret Wars, this new Easter egg holds significant excitement.
