The upcoming third installment of the Deadpool franchise will see the Merc with a Mouth and the X-Men’s Wolverine team up for a buddy road comedy. However, new set photos have revealed that the two characters will also come to blows at some point in the film.
The images show Reynolds’ Deadpool and Jackman’s Wolverine fighting in the wreckage of 20th Century Fox, the studio that previously produced the X-Men films. The iconic Fox logo can be seen buried in a nearby cliffside, suggesting that the fight is taking place in a branched timeline caused by Deadpool’s multiverse-breaking antics.
It is unclear what exactly caused the two characters to fight, but it could be due to their different personalities or Deadpool’s reckless behavior. Whatever the reason, the fight is sure to be a highlight of the film.
With just shy of a year still to go until its release, audiences will have to continue speculating what the set photos could be setting up. However, one thing is for sure: the rivalry between Deadpool and Wolverine is about to reach a new level.
