After the trailer was released, a lot of fans weren't happy with the new footage. Lunwi on Twitter shared, "Oh man, look at how washed out and less vibrant Deadpool 3 is compared to the first two installments." But, some fans are sharing their excitement about the new movie by sharing Deadpool cosplay pictures of themselves. Cosplayer Jay (@lifelikejay on Twitter) shared, "LFG I'm still obsessing over the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer."

However, director Shawn Levy wants to clear up the movie's title with fans. "It’s the third Deadpool movie, but it’s not Deadpool 3. It’s a different thing that’s very much Deadpool and Wolverine. And it’s not trying to copycat anything from the first two movies. They were awesome, but this is a two-hander character adventure," Shawn shared with Screen Rant.

Deadpool & Wolverine is set to premiere on July 26, 2024.
