Watch Deadpool & Wolverine Recap Their Own Movie History

Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters in a few weeks, and it’s been a bit of a longer than expected wait for Wade Wilson to come back in theaters. If you haven’t seen the previous movies in a minute, or just want to watch Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman do some cut back and forth banter, they’ve got you covered.

As part of Entertainment Weekly’s cover story on the film, the two actors sat down to recap the major events of the first two Deadpool movies, and also X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That last one briefly opens the recap, and mostly exists so the two can throw some shade at the film and how it ultimately led to Reynolds reprising his short role to begin with. (“We don’t like to talk about this one too much,” says Jackman early on, followed later by Reynolds saying the movie wasn’t either of their fault.) Throughout the Deadpool sections, there’s plenty of laughs to be had about the makeup job to play Wade’s disfigured face, the “lots of affordable” X-Men throughout the franchise, and Deadpool 2’s meta post-credit gags.

If you’ve had fun watching the two’s rapport grow since they first revealed Jackman would be a part of Deadpool’s third movie, you’re gonna get some fun out of the recap. The pair have been all over the marketing for Deadpool & Wolverine, and it’s fun to watch them get some jabs at each other, be confused by the earlier movies, and also take some shots at their own careers. (When talking about Reynolds murdering himself at the end of Deadpool 2 as “housekeeping” on Fox’s dime, Jackman acknowledges that he may need a cleaner himself.) Sadly, there’s no recap of Logan, which makes sense since this is an alternate version, but it would’ve been fun watching them try explaining movies’ wonky-ass timeline.

Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26. All the X-Men movies can be watched on Disney+, and if you don’t have that, just wait two weeks for FX to marathon the first two Deadpool movies (and probably Origins and Logan too).
