During Sunday night’s Super Bowl adverts, fans got their first peek at a number of forthcoming flicks, including Wicked and the Deadpool sequel.
In the teaser for Deadpool and Wolverine, Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine, while Ryan Reynolds plays Deadpool.
Ariana Grande, star of Wicked, is in Oz at the same time.
Super Bowl commercials play a significant role in the National Football League season.
Every year, the American football championship is watched by tens of millions of people, and the commercials that run during the game are extremely costly and are usually scheduled months in advance.
Due to the Hollywood acting strikes that concluded last autumn, filming for Deadpool, Wolverine, and Wicked was postponed in the UK.
Fans are eager to see Reynolds and Jackman battle it out in their Marvel roles in the upcoming third installment of the Deadpool franchise.
“There’s going to be a major shift in your small cinematic universe. In the trailer, Reynolds made an innuendo joke and declared, “I’m the Messiah, I am Marvel Jesus.”
Alongside him is Jackman, who has portrayed Wolverine in three spin-off films, including Logan, and in the X-Men films from 2000 to 2016.
Sir Patrick Stewart, who portrayed Professor X in the X-Men movies, is reportedly involved with the movie.
Emma Corrin, star of The Crown, and Matthew Macfadyen, who plays Paradox, an agent of the Time Variance Authority, are also featured.
The Shawn Levy-directed movie will make its US premiere on July 26.
In the meantime, Jon M. Chu’s musical Wicked is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire that served as the basis for the Broadway smash.
It relates the tale of Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West, portrayed by Cynthia Erivo, who has green skin, before Dorothy arrives in Oz.
As Glinda, the future Good Witch of the North, Grande is a star.
The trailer for the film features Jeff Goldblum as the Wizard of Oz, Bridgerton star Jonathan Bailey as Fiyero Tigelaar, and Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh as Madame Morrible.
On November 28, the movie will be released in the UK.
