The Marvel Cinematic Universe is placing all its major bets on their upcoming film, Deadpool & Wolverine. It is not only their first and only release of 2024, but it is also their first R-rated movie. Additionally, Deadpool & Wolverine is the first MCU film to feature two transferees from Fox's X-Men universe in the lead roles. This film is expected to break the franchise's recent losing streak following the critical panning of Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania and the critical and commercial failure of The Marvels.

The film brings together Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, and Hugh Jackman's Logan, aka Wolverine, for the first time since X-Men: Origins - Wolverine (2009), and is directed by Shawn Levy. Ahead of the film's release on July 25, Deadpool & Wolverine's lead actors and director were in Shanghai to promote the movie. According to reports, attendees were treated to the first 40 minutes of the movie, which included some major spoilers.

Of course, it didn't take long for these supposed SPOILERS to reach the internet. If you want to avoid all SPOILERS for Deadpool & Wolverine at all costs, stop reading now and mute the film's name on your social media accounts until the release date or when you finally get to watch the movie.

If you are still curious to know what got leaked, here's what we managed to find out from various social media accounts. We cannot verify these claims, so please take them with a pinch of salt.

Possible Leaked SPOILERS for 'Deadpool & Wolverine'

Apparently, Deadpool & Wolverine has a 'violent connection' to *Logan* (2017), the last film featuring Jackman's Wolverine. The film also features other variants of Wolverine, including a zombie version. The footage showed some major cameos, including (gasp!) the Hulk. According to reports, Deadpool's quote, "People have waited decades for this fight," in Deadpool & Wolverine's last promo, was not referring to Logan's face-off with Sabertooth, but with Hulk. ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’: Logan Faces Sabretooth in New Promo of Ryan Reynolds-Hugh Jackman’s Marvel Film (Watch Video).

It is also revealed that the trailers released so far feature scenes from the first 40 minutes shown at the Shanghai screening. Lady Deadpool is also glimpsed, though she keeps her mask on, and people are speculating that she is voiced by Reynolds' real-life spouse, Blake Lively. As expected, there are plenty of jokes about Marvel and Fox, alongside some intense drama.

The consensus of the leaks is that Deadpool & Wolverine is aiming for a spectacle equivalent to the Avengers films, but with the irreverence typically associated with the Deadpool movies. While these leaks are definitely exciting, one wonders what Marvel's strategy is in screening such a significant portion of the movie just a few weeks before its release, especially in an era where spoilers cannot be contained. Or is Ryan Reynolds and Company trying to troll us by showing footage that may not even be in the final film?
