Deadpool and Wolverine Trailer: What Is The Sling Ring Portal Through Which Deadpool and Wolverine Jump?

Deadpool & Wolverine

Glorious shot of Deadpool and Wolverine

In the final moments of the trailer, we get a glorious shot of Deadpool and Wolverine hurling themselves through what is a sling ring portal. While longtime MCU fans surely aren’t scratching their heads at what that portal is, its appearance is subtly very telling in terms of the film’s storyline.

While these are originally the work of Doctor Strange and other sorcerers, these portals can be created with the use of sling rings. They’re common magical objects that have been wielded by even novice sorcerers like Ned Leeds  in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and, very briefly, America Chavez in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

The new trailer is here!

One possibility for this moment is that somewhere in the Void-like wasteland Deadpool and Wolverine find themselves stranded in, they come across a rogue sling ring to escape (given that they’re both seen fighting the TVA and that the TVA has more accessible transportation, Deadpool is probably on the outs with the organization by this point in the film).

Another more titillating possibility is that Doctor Strange — or some variant of him (hopefully played by Joaquin Phoenix, who’d been offered the part of the Sorcerer Supreme) — is on the other end of that portal aiding in their escape. It may be a bit too “deus-ex-magika” for some, but his proximity to the multiverse makes it a reasonable theory.
