The Return of Hugh Jackman

One of the factors contributing to the trailer’s immense popularity is undoubtedly the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. After seemingly bidding farewell to the character in 2017, fans were wondering if they would ever see Jackman in the claws again. His unexpected return sent shockwaves through the fandom, creating some excitement and speculation about the direction of the film.

Easter Eggs

Another reason for the trailer’s overwhelming success is the abundance of Easter eggs scattered throughout its brief runtime. From subtle nods to the comics to clever references to previous films, every frame is packed with hidden gems. These Easter eggs not only reward longtime followers of the series but also generate buzz and anticipation as viewers dissect and analyse every detail in search of clues about the film’s plot and characters.

4th Wall Breaking

No Deadpool film would be complete without a breaking of the fourth wall, and the trailer delivers on this front. From hilarious asides to the audience to meta-commentary on the state of the superhero genre, Deadpool’s humor is on full display. This reminds the viewers why they fell in love with the character in the first place. This long-awaited return promises a film that not only pushes the boundaries of conventional storytelling but also provides a refreshing and self-aware take on the superhero genre as a whole.
