New Marvel Movie On Disney Plus Added To Set Up Deadpool & Wolverine

Marvel and Disney have given fans of the upcoming Deadpool and Wolverine film some required reading on Disney+ in the leadup to the threequel’s debut.

New Marvel Movie On Disney Plus Added To Set Up Deadpool & Wolverine

Highlights

  • Disney+ added the 2003 film Daredevil starring Jennifer Garner, hinting at her reprisal as Elektra in Deadpool & Wolverine.
  • Garner's return as Elektra might get overshadowed by the large cast of characters in the film, but Disney+ added Daredevil for fans to appreciate her role.
  • The success of Deadpool & Wolverine as the only MCU film in 2024 remains uncertain, dependent on fan reception and avoiding franchise fatigue.

While Deadpool and Wolverine is still a few months out from premiering, the powers that be at Marvel Studios and Disney seem to be getting fans prepared for the film’s ensemble performance by adding one iconic pre-MCU project to Disney+.

Deadpool and Wolverine is easily one of the most highly anticipated movie sequels of 2024, serving both as the debuts of Ryan Reynold’s fan favorite Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and as the only cinematic release from the studio this year. One of the major features of the film is its purportedly massive cast and number of cameos from new and returning Marvel characters, many of which are still largely hidden in the fog of pre-release secrecy. While some of these rumors seem entirely unlikely, others have had some degree of legitimacy given via casting or BTS photos showing off some of their scenes in the film.

While this has left casting rumors flying all over the place, leading to a former Fantastic Four star having to clear the air concerning their involvement, others are getting more substantial. As highlighted by The Direct, Disney+ has recently added the 2003 film Daredevil to its already massive streaming library, a Ben Affleck-led Marvel movie from before the dawn of Marvel Studios or the MCU. Of interest to fans of the upcoming Deadpool threequel is that this film also stars Jennifer Garner (who has been pegged to star in Deadpool 3) as the assassin turned antihero Elektra Natchios. All signs point to a role reprisal for Garner as well as an MCU debut for Elektra, and the film’s addition to the streaming service so to the release of Deadpool and Wolverine seems to serve as both a confirmation and a chance for fans to go back to and appreciate Garner’s first performance in the role.

Garner’s return is a notable one, but might also get lost in the purported shuffle on the set of Deadpool and Wolverine due to the sheer amount of characters involved. Releasing the Daredevil film on Disney+ seems like a great way to ensure that she gets some recognition when she appears in the film. The character of Elektra is also set to make an appearance on the small screen, though the only casting done for Daredevil: Born Again’s Elektra is in fanart. These two points are a plus for the MCU, as Elektra fits well into the street-level theme that the franchise was reported to be making a subtle shift to in the news cycle a while ago. It might also be fun for casuals to see Affleck’s take on Matt Murdock now that he’s become even more prominent an actor than he was at the time. Comparisons of his time as Daredevil to his time as the DCEU’s Batman could prove quite entertaining.

While it currently looks like it’s a good thing that Deadpool and Wolverine will be 2024’s only MCU film, that only holds true if its theatrical run is actually a success. There’s a lot of expectation riding on the movie, and while Deadpool has a lot of goodwill with the fans, the film leans heavily into some of the tropes that might be at the center of fan fatigue concerning the franchise. Fans themselves will just have to wait and see how things play out when it premieres.

Deadpool and Wolverine is currently set for theatrical release on July 26, 2024.
