‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Criticized Ahead of Release for Being the Eighth Movie To Ignore a Massive Plot Hole in the MCU

deadpool and wolverine new trailer

‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ trailer recently dropped, and we’ve seen everything from nods to comic storylines to an overwhelming amount of cameos about to appear in the movie.

The movie sees Deadpool as he is set to return to his crime-fighting tendencies after he is recruited by the TVA to stop his reality from collapsing. Wade will attempt to talk Wolverine into helping him, but judging by the trailer Wolverine will be more than reluctant. The movie will introduce Cassandra Nova to the MCU as the primary villain as well as continue the Multiversal Theme of the MCU.

The movie apparently takes place in the Void, a realm outside of space and time introduced in the ‘Loki’ series, and among other references and easter eggs, fans noticed one more thing – this is the eighth movie not to address the giant, literally giant elephant in the room – massive Celestial hand sticking out the planet.

Fans have criticized Marvel for consistently overlooking the fate of the Celestial Tiamut, which was destroyed and trapped in the ocean in the 2021 film ‘Eternals’. Despite its significant presence, it has received minimal attention in previous films, disappointing fans who feel the studio has neglected this aspect of the franchise. The only fleeting reference the studio has made toward the hand was in ‘She-Hulk,’ and that reference did nothing to address the cause and the solution to the problem.

There is a good chance that Deadpool will reference this, but in a joking manner as always. However, not all is bleak for Tiamut in the MCU as rumors have it that ‘Captain America: Brave New World’ will have the hand as a massive part of its plot, as well as the upcoming ‘Thunderbolts.’

We’re not so confident however that this means that Eternals are becoming a larger part of the MCU since the last unofficial update was that the standalone project that was supposed to be ‘Eternals 2’ is being reworked into something else.
