“Go with God”: Latest ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Poster Plays at the Marvel Jesus Gag From the Teaser

Published 05/04/2024, 9:26 PM EDT

When the initial trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine was released, it not only delighted fans with the trademark humor of Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth, but also saw Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool humorously liken himself to Marvel Jesus. Since then, Deadpool has consistently embodied this self-proclaimed role, with each new revelation, whether official or unofficial, emphasizing his penchant for saving the day. 

The latest movie poster, however, goes beyond a mere nod to the Marvel Jesus proclamation since fans now seem thoroughly convinced that the anarchic anti-hero has embraced a more conventional hero role.

Deep into convention season, following the cinematic bombshells dropped at CinemaCon about Deadpool & Wolverine, the CCXP convention ushered in fresh opportunities for another show of teasers. At the ongoing event in Mexico City, attendees were treated to an exclusive preview accompanied by the distribution of a new poster that reads "Go with God" in Spanish. The poster depicts the Deadpool & Wolverine crew illustrated as figures on candles, exuding a divine presence with halos above their heads and adorned in robes that unmistakably echo Deadpool's claim of being the Marvel Jesus.

In this artwork, starting from the far left, there are Colossus, Vanessa, and Deadpool alongside one of his variants, Dogpool, Wolverine, and Blind Al. Each character's portrayal exudes a religious undertone with a sacred aura hovering over their silhouettes. However, Vanessa's donning of a saree amidst the robed men sets the tone of the poster up by a notch. Therefore, the poster seamlessly aligning with every prior teaser suggests that audiences should brace themselves for an action-packed cinematic spectacle this summer.
