The MCU may be on the verge of coming out of its extended slump, if ticket pre-sales for Deadpool and Wolverine are any indication. Fandango announced on Tuesday that the upcoming Marvel blockbuster broke two impressive records thus far.

In a post on X/Twitter, Fandango announced that the projected summer tentpole Deadpool and Wolverine “broke Fandango’s best first-day ticket sales record for 2024. The film is also the best first-day pre-seller from the Deadpool franchise.”

Pre-sale tickets for what is projected to be one of the hottest movies of the summer began selling on Fandango on Monday, with Deadpool and Wolverine's stars tweeting about it.

Ryan Reynolds, who dons the Deadpool mask, shared a new clip of the film that makes fun use of the acronym “LFG” (Let's F—ing Go) and concludes with the message “Get tickets now.” He hit the point home further by captioning the post, “LFG. GT. #DeadpoolAndWolverine ❤️💛.”

Reynolds also shared a new Deadpool and Wolverine poster in a separate post. This one is captioned “Don’t bring claws to a gunfight #DeadpoolAndWolverine ❤️💛” and features both characters facing off against each other with the aforementioned weaponry.

Hugh Jackson, the famous portrayer of Wolverine (even before Marvel formed the Marvel Cinematic Universe), has also been tweeting heavily about the new film in anticipation of tickets going on sale.

On Sunday, he tweeted “Tomorrow. #deadpoolandwolverine ❤️💛” along with another new poster drop that features the Deadpool mask and Wolverine claw glove against a white background.

Then, on Monday, Jackman shared the same new trailer as Reynolds with the caption “One ticket for #DeadpoolAndWolverine please. Just one. ❤️💛.”

In short, the Marvel publicity machine appears to be in full swing — with the movie studio not wanting to take any chances with its most highly-anticipated superhero film in years.

After a string of lackluster results from its latest entries to the MCU — such as Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and The Marvels — Marvel is going back to one of its recent surprise success stories, Deadpool, and pairing him with Wolverine, the breakout Hugh Jackman X-Men character he's been portraying since 2000.

Superhero fatigue hasn't been limited to Marvel entries, as DC has also experiences disappointing numbers for its major releases in recent years.

But judging by the initial ticket sales that Fandango is highlighting, Deadpool and Wolverine may finally be poised to reverse the trend and give superheroes another big lift at the box office.
