Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are ready to take on the world in the next installment in the Marvel universe of Deadpool & Wolverine.

Marvel Studios just released a new trailer for the duo’s upcoming movie on April 22, teasing the much hyped third Deadpool movie including footage set to Madonna‘s 1989 hit “Like a Prayer.”

After the first teaser for the movie released in February previewed only a glimpse at Jackman’s iconic X-Men character Wolverine, the new trailer shows Reynolds’ character Wade Wilson teaming up with the hero to save the world.

Although the two seem to have some rocky fights in the beginning, Deadpool learns that this version of Wolverine failed in his past adventures with the X-men.

Deadpool eventually gets the jaded superhero to enlist on one action-packed adventure together.

Deadpool & Wolverine marks the series’ first entry within the Marvel Cinematic Universe; the previous films in the series were produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox, prior to Disney’s purchase of the studio and the rights to incorporate Deadpool and other X-Men characters into Marvel Studios’ shared universe.

Jackman and Reynolds are real-life friends, with the two revealing that Jackman was reprising his role back in September 2022.

The two let many know that it will not negate the events that happened in the 2017 film Logan, which previously had many believing it was going to be the final time Jackman intended to play his 2000’s X-Men character.

Reynolds shared some jokes regarding the trailer’s release on Instagram, where he wrote alongside the video that he “found the guy who killed Bambi’s mom” in reference to the classic Disney animated film Bambi. The actor also shared one of the new character posters for the film on the social media platform, writing in a caption, “Hang it in the Louvre.”

The third Deadpool movie also stars Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams and Karan Soni. Corrin, whom Reynolds announced as a costar back in February 2023 in a post he shared on X, briefly appears in the trailer for confrontations with Wolverine and Deadpool, at one point remarking that “boys are so silly.”

The film is directed by none other than Shawn Levy, with whom has collaborated with Reynolds on the script with screenwriters Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells.

Deadpool & Wolverine is in theaters July 26.
