Does DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE's New Trailer Feature A Nod To 2002's SPIDER-MAN? Does DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE's New Trailer Feature A Nod To 2002's SPIDER-MAN?

Since the new Deadpool & Wolverine trailer was released on Monday, fans have been combing through the footage with a fine-tooth comb (you can read our breakdown here).

When there's so much excitement surrounding the threequel, that's understandable, as this is probably the most anticipated Marvel movie since Spider-Man: No Way Home

We've already spotted some noteworthy cameos, but many fans are convinced the teaser features a nod to 2002's Spider-Man. No, the wall-crawler isn't swinging through the background of a shot set in The Void; instead, it's believed the clash between the Merc with the Mouth and Logan is meant to pay homage to Peter Parker and Flash Thompson's clash over two decades ago.

On the one hand, it feels like a stretch. On the other, we can see where they're coming from! 

As one Redditor put it, "Them calling back to that shows they're paying attention to everything, every minuscule detail from previous studios and films." Another chimed in to suggest the scene could go something like this: "Deadpool: 'I don't wanna fight you, Logan.' Wolverine: 'I wouldn't wanna fight me, neither.'"

Either way, Deadpool & Wolverine is clearly pulling from the wider Marvel Multiverse. While we're not expecting Spidey to make a physical appearance in this threequel, there have been rumblings that Hugh Jackman has pushed for a scene with Tobey Maguire in Avengers: Secret Wars.

Before they were outed (likely spoiling the surprise), Marvel Studios had trademarked "Deadpool & Friend" and "Deadpool & Friends," and the latter could prove to be very telling before the movie rolls around this July.

Check out the comparison below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section. 

Shawn Levy directs Deadpool & Wolverine, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. The movie is written by Ryan Reynolds & Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells & Shawn Levy.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively and, as we mentioned above, even singer Taylor Swift among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Reynolds, Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26.

Usually I find this kind of stuff a real stretch, but given what film it is and how 4th wall breaking the character is, I could actually see this being intentional and even referenced like the article says (e.g. ‘I don’t wanna fight you’)
TheNewYorker - 4/24/2024, 4:07 PM
@CerealKiller1 - clearly intentional, and cool.
SATW42 - 4/24/2024, 2:15 PM
It's 100% intentional. It's literally the exact same choreography.
Spike101 - 4/24/2024, 2:18 PM
I’d say nothing in this movie is unintentional. It’s fully of references from start to finish.
MotherGooseUPus - 4/24/2024, 2:18 PM
Desperately grasping at straws on this one
ReverseFlasher - 4/24/2024, 2:28 PM
@MotherGooseUPus - I was doubtful upon reading but the synchronization of those clips is pretty convincing.
MotherGooseUPus - 4/24/2024, 3:07 PM
@ReverseFlasher - they could have edited the fight scene in trailer to sync up just like in spiderman, but in the movie it could be different... it's been done before. i'm just saying, this seems desperate to correlate every movie for sony/fox into this one movie, thats all
CerealKiller1 - 4/24/2024, 3:17 PM
@MotherGooseUPus - Wait…your idea is that they purposefully edited the trailer to line up with it? But not the movie? Huh? Why would they do one and not the other, makes absolutely no sense
MotherGooseUPus - 4/24/2024, 6:11 PM
@CerealKiller1 - so that sites like this and twitter twats will post about it to get likes and shares and buzz etc.... i could be completely wrong, but i could also careless. i jus want this movie to be great
TheVisionary25 - 4/24/2024, 2:23 PM
Seems like a stretch since it just looks like basic & standard fight choreography to me…

However I could see maybe someone on the stunt team being a fan and putting those movements into the film as an Easter egg of sorts.

We’ll see if intentional or not but its a fun observation regardless!!.

Clearly it was intentional but to post the headline like that 😄 what a joke.
HammerLegFoot - 4/24/2024, 2:30 PM
@VISIONaryNPa1 - To that X-Men article?
VISIONaryNPa1 - 4/24/2024, 4:22 PM
@HammerLegFoot - no.. this article. A joke
DudeGuy - 4/24/2024, 2:31 PM
We’ll be finding Easter eggs and references for years with this movie

''Them calling back to that shows they're paying attention to everything''

Okay, let's not start giving them too much credit now. If it does indeed end with "Deadpool: 'I don't wanna fight you, Logan.' Wolverine: 'I wouldn't wanna fight me, neither.'" though, then I'll give them the credit
DeadClunge - 4/24/2024, 2:41 PM
Would have been funny if they had what look like a Sony pictures sign half way in the dirt behind him instead of the fox one just for a split second.

Any rumors to Halle Berry actually coming back?

@QuietStorm - There were rumours awhile ago when I think Halle posted a photo with a storm like haircut, but it’s been so long o could be mistaken
QuietStorm - 4/24/2024, 5:21 PM
@CerealKiller1 - You know what, I remember that same thing. She posted a short cut you're right.
Fares - 4/24/2024, 3:53 PM
Unless this sequence of moves is a thing among fight choreographers when they feel too lazy to think outside the box, yeah I'd say it could be a reference.
TheVisionary25 - 4/24/2024, 3:59 PM
@Fares - it’s a pretty routine sequence in fight training and choreography I feel I have seen in BTS videos so I think it might not be intentional
dragon316 - 4/24/2024, 5:37 PM
Saw this same conversation in video 17:04 one day ago
LSHF - 4/24/2024, 6:28 PM
I think Sam directed the Spider-Man fight scene that way because he knew one day there would be a similar scene between Deadpool and Wolverine.
