The latest issue of Empire Magazine has a featured article on Deadpool & Wolverine where new images are released of Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds along with interviews with the actors and the head of Marvel, Kevin Feige.

“It feels like the most Deadpool movie in the history of Deadpool,” Ryan Reynolds said, with the article pointing out that means f-bombs and lots of violence in the flick.

The article also mentions part of the plot that involves the TVA (from the Loki series).

“Deadpool is very intrigued by that,” Feige reveals. “He learns soon thereafter that it’s not quite as simple an offer as he thought it was. And the stakes are universe-sized.”

The flick sees Ryan Reynolds finally teaming up with Hugh Jackman, as the pair had a bro-mance for years on social media teasing the possibility.

“As much as I take the ever-loving f-cking piss out of him each and every day, underneath that is a genuine love story,” said Reynolds of their bond.

As seen in the new images, Jackman sports the classic yellow suit from the comics for the first time.

“We almost did it in The Wolverine,” Jackman said. “But from the moment I put it on here, I was like, ‘How did we never do this?’ It looked so right, it felt so right. I was like, ‘That’s him.’ There are different sides of Wolverine we haven’t seen before in the movies. It was exciting for me. It’s great for Deadpool to have someone who will punch him in the face [laughs].”

Feige also adds that they didn’t want to undo what happened in Logan and the article mentions it isn’t the exact same Logan from the previous X-Men movies, which Feige responds, “Correct.”

“I said, ‘Let me give you a piece of advice, Hugh. Don’t come back’,” Feige recalled about telling Jackman about the end of Logan where Wolverine dies. “‘You had the greatest ending in history with Logan. That’s not something we should undo.’”

So as the Logan movie seemed to close the book on Jackman playing Wolverine, but Jackman says how there was something that made him come back (Ryan Reynolds!).

“I was about an hour into the drive,” recalled Jackman. “And that question came into my head: ‘What do I want to do?’ And as soon as I asked the question, I wanted to do Deadpool & Wolverine. I just knew it. I drove for another hour. Couldn’t stop thinking about it. And I got out of the car, called Ryan, and said, ‘Ryan, if you’ll have me, I’m in.’”

Deadpool & Wolverine gets released on July 26 directed by Shawn Levy.
