It’s a showdown with Sabretooth in latest Deadpool and Wolverine trailer

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman star in Deadpool and Wolverine.

It’s safe to say that Marvel Studios’ Deadpool and Wolverine is one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the summer. We’ve had a teaser and full trailer, and now the studio has released a second one-minute trailer with a surprise appearance bound to delight X-Men fans everywhere. It’s none other than Sabretooth, played by the same actor, Tyler Mane, who portrayed the character in 2000’s X-Men. And he’s got a score to settle with Wolverine.

As previously reported, Ryan Reynolds found the perfect fit with 2016’s Deadpool, starring as Wade Wilson, a former Canadian special forces operative (dishonorably discharged) who develops regenerative healing powers that heal his cancer but leave him permanently disfigured with scars all over his body. Wade decides to become a masked vigilante, turning down an invitation to join the X-Men and abandon his bad-boy ways. The first Deadpool was a big hit, racking up $782 million at the global box office, critical praise, and a couple of Golden Globe nominations for good measure. Deadpool 2 was released in 2018 and was just as successful.

Deadpool and Wolverine reunites Reynolds with many familiar faces from the first two films. Morena Baccarin is back as Wade’s girlfriend Vanessa, along with Leslie Uggams as Blind Al; Karan Soni as Wade’s personal chauffeur, taxi driver Dopinder; Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead; Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus; Shioli Kutsuna as Negasonic’s mutant girlfriend, Yukio; Randal Reeder as Buck; and Lewis Tan as X-Force member Shatterstar.

We’re also getting some characters drawn from various films under the 20th Century Fox Marvel umbrella: Pyro (Aaron Stanford)—last seen in 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand—and Jennifer Garner’s Elektra, who appeared in the 2003 Daredevil film as well as 2005’s Elektra. Along with Sabretooth, the mutants Toad and Dogpool should be on hand to make some trouble. New to the franchise are Matthew MacFadyen as a Time Variance Authority agent named Paradox and Emma Corrin as the lead villain. There have been rumors that Owen Wilson’s Mobius and the animated Miss Minutes from Loki may also appear in the film.

Marvel released a two-minute teaser for the new movie during the Super Bowl in February, featuring the trademark cheeky irreverence that made audiences embrace Reynold’s R-rated superhero in the first place, plus a glimpse of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine—or rather, his distinctive shadow. And yes, Marvel is retaining that R rating—a big step given that all the prior MCU films have been resoundingly PG-13. Marvel dropped a full trailer in April that was chock-full of off-color witticisms, meta-references, slo-mo action, and a generous sprinkling of F-bombs. (But no cocaine! Wade promised Kevin Feige!)

This latest trailer has a lot of the same footage as that April trailer until the 26-second mark. That’s when Wolverine growls, “Who’s next?” after battling a horde of foes. Who should jump into the fray with an answering growl but Sabretooth. We are all Deadpool when he exclaims, “Oh. My. God.” Sabretooth breaks out his claws and asks Wolverine if he’s ready to die. That’s when Deadpool calls a timeout to pull a few weapons out of his frenemy and offer a few tips on how to defeat the other mutant, to Wolverine’s annoyance.

“People have waited decades for this fight,” Deadpool insists. “It’s not gonna be easy. Baby knife. Shoot the devil, you take him down. Side control. Then full mount, and you ground and pound until he makes no sound because he’s dead. OK, good luck, I’m a huge fan.” We’ll have to wait a few more weeks to find out if Wolverine takes any of that advice.

Deadpool and Wolverine hits theaters on July 26, 2024.
