Marvel accidentally spoils Deadpool and Wolverine's plot (and it's a jaw-dropper)

Deadpool and Wolverine just got even more exciting as new update has unveiled as a major aspect of the plot that is nothing short of mind-blowing.

Ever since the first trailer for Deadpool and Wolverine made its presence felt, the internet has been alight with speculation about what could happen in the movie to bring the two frenemies together. We know that the Time Variance Authority will be involved, and we know that they will recruit Deadpool for a multiversal mission, but little else is known about the film (other than the fact that Hugh Jackman will be making his long-awaited return as Wolverine).

However, a major plot detail about the movie has been (perhaps inadvertently) released by none other than Marvel themselves it seems. And if it turns out to be true, it not only confirms a major fan theory, it means we're in for a truly mind-blowing adventure.

Deadpool and Wolverine will take a trip into the MCU's past

A new synopsis for Deadpool and Wolverine has surfaced online and it has revealed some major plot details from the upcoming movie. Originating from Marvel's official Zazzle store, the synopsis reveals that the pair will be revisiting some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most iconic moments. It reads:

"Not only will [Deadpool and Wolverine] be working to defeat a range of villains plaguing the Marvel universe, bub, but they’ll be gate-crashing the MCU franchise, too, and putting their own R-rated, 20th Century Fox-styled twist on some of our favorite moments from Phases 1-4!"

Needless to say, this is a huge deal - so huge in fact that shortly after it began doing the rounds on the internet, it was updated to a more straightforward synopsis that consisted of just one sentence. Fans have been speculating about what the chaotic duo will get up to throughout the movie as most of the footage has leaned into their showdown in The Void, but this adds some more context to the plot.

It also supports the fan theory going around that Wade Wilson and Logan could find their way to the legendary battle between The Avengers and Thanos during Avengers: Endgame. The second trailer for the movie featured a closing sequence of the titular duo jumping into one of Doctor Strange's portals, which led fans to believe that they could end up landing straight in the battle sequence along with the other heroes who teleported there in that scene. Now, that seems a heck of a lot more possible.

Even if it isn't the Avengers: Endgame battle, there are a host of scenes from the other MCU movies that it could be, and quite frankly, the idea of revisiting some of them through the point-of-view of either Wolverine or Deadpool is fascinating (and exciting... very, very exciting).

Deadpool and Wolverine's other Avengers: Endgame connection

Marvel Studios has done a great job of keeping the plot of Deadpool and Wolverine under wraps in all of its promotional material. The trailers have mostly focused on the showdown in The Void, while the artwork and promo stills haven't been spoilery either. But this new synopsis might have inadvertently spoiled it.

With so much of the story unknown, this is the biggest plot reveal we've had yet. Fans are beginning to wonder if the movie will takes its cues from the aforementioned Avengers: Endgame in having its main characters revisit some of the MCU's greatest hits? While the idea of that happening in the film wasn't totally unexpected, the belief was that they would be quick and fleeting moments, but if it is as big a part of the plot as the synopsis suggests, then that changes everything.

It also might explain why the film is expected to feature so many cameo appearances. Cameos are nothing new in Marvel's multiversal movies, but a film that makes its way back through the MCU's memories has limitless potential in terms of returns and guest appearances. Could we see some of the original Avengers make a comeback? Could they interact with Wade and Logan? And does this mean the duo could make their way to alternate realms too, giving us some What If...? scenarios along the way?

We'll have to wait and see what shenanigans Deadpool and Wolverine has in store for us, but this is one the most exciting updates yet. And we're not ready to see the enemies-turned-friends cause havoc in the MCU's timeline (but we're also so ready for it!).
