Estimated Release Date for Deadpool 3 Trailer: When It’s Most Likely to Arrive

253

With Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool and Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine, production on Deadpool 3 is finally finished. But when will the first official trailer be unveiled?

Deadpool 3 was already one of the most eagerly awaited MCU films, but because Captain America: Brave New World and Thunderbolts were delayed, Deadpool 3 has been even more anticipated. Now, it is the only 2024 film produced by Marvel Studios.

When Is the First Trailer for Deadpool 3 Coming Out?

Marvel Studios needs Deadpool 3 to be a box office hit and a hit with fans after waves of criticism and other underwhelming Phase 5 projects. As it stands, the film appears to have all the necessary components to pull that off:

The follow-up to two well-received, profitable, and popular films
The highly anticipated first R-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe film
The X-Men’s screen debut, excluding cameos, in a Marvel Studios film
The most recent significant setup for the next Avengers films
Hugh Jackman’s eagerly anticipated comeback as Wolverine
The sole MCU film scheduled for release in theaters in 2024
Disney will definitely want to go all out with a lengthy and comprehensive marketing campaign in order to make sure Deadpool 3 can live up to its full potential, which it will need to do given that Marvel Studios has no other films to fall back on this year.

We must first look to the past of MCU trailer releases to determine the release date of the first trailer for Deadpool 3. Trailer-to-release windows for the MCU’s Multiverse Saga films have varied from 81 to 213 days, with an average of roughly 138 days over ten films:

150 days for Black Widow (before delays)
136 days in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
165 days for Eternals
116 days in Spider-Man: No Way Home
135 days of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
81 days of Thor: Love and Thunder
110 days of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
116 days in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Volume 3 of Guardians of the Galaxy, 156 days
Marvel Comics – 213 Days
With Deadpool 3’s release date of July 26, that typical window would place the trailer around March 10, but there is reason to believe it could arrive sooner.

The annual Super Bowl is renowned for its commercials and movie trailers, and this year’s will likely offer the first trailer for Deadpool 3 on Sunday, February 11 after multiple MCU movies were featured at the 2023 game.

This aligns with Marvel Studios’ long history of airing spots at every Super Bowl since 2010. With no other MCU movies set to release in 2024, using the annual event to promote Deadpool 3 is a no-brainer.

Dropping the trailer on February 11 would also allow Deadpool 3 to play in theaters ahead of many prominent movies releasing across February and March, including Madame Web, Dune: Part Two, Kung Fu Panda 4, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.

Deadpool 3 was initially filmed from May 22 to July 14 last year before halting production due to the start of the SAG-AFTRA strike. Director Shawn Levy confirmed to The Wrap in October 2023 that by this point they had “shot half the movie,” and he had also “edited half the movie.”

Production resumed on November 28 and later wrapped on January 24 this year, and as Levy confirmed he had “edited half the movie” during the strikes, there will be more than enough footage ready to have a trailer together in time.

Speculation of a Deadpool 3 first look during the Super Bowl is only furthered by recent rumors from insiders on social media.

As is usually the case, fans shouldn’t expect too much in the way of story details from Deadpool 3’s first teaser trailer. Marvel Studios will likely look to make it clear this is the same-old Deadpool with all the usual fourth-wall-breaking, violence, and foul language while perhaps hinting at its Multiversal implications.

Although Deadpool 3 is expected to feature plenty of characters from the old Fox universe, don’t expect much of them in the first trailer. That said, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine may have a presence as he will be one of the threequel’s top selling points, and Logan is expected to be a main character.

Beyond that, fans can only hope for a taste of whatever villain Deadpool and Wolverine will be fighting, which currently remains a well-kept secret.

One new feature for Deadpool 3 compared to its predecessors will be its MCU connections as it will be the first in the franchise produced under Marvel Studios. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Merc with a Mouth acknowledge this directly through a fourth wall break or maybe even some teases of the TVA’s presence.

Marvel Studios should also finally announce the title, as, up until now, Disney has been referring to the 2024 flick as “Untitled Deadpool Movie.” It wouldn’t be shocking for the official title to include Wolverine as his adventure with Deadpool appears to be the focus point of the threequel.
