Due to the Hollywood strikes, the Deadpool & Wolverine movie ended up being pushed from its original May release to July. Luckily, Marvel has fans covered with Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIII, a three-issue miniseries available this May from writer Joe Kelly and artist Adam Kubert. Obviously, Kelly is no stranger to the character having written the acclaimed ongoing series in the ’90s and in various other projects over the years.

Official press release below:

The most intensely mismatched team-up in comics and pop culture, the best there is and the merc with the mouth, undergoes a radical change in an all-new three-part, globe-spanning saga for the ages in DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE: WWIII #1. On stands this May, acclaimed writer Joe Kelly makes his return to Deadpool in the new series alongside legendary artist Adam Kubert. 

The mysterious Delta believes in change. Change is good. But as he sets his sights on Deadpool, and Wolverine is caught up in the plot, is the third time really the charm, or the curse? Get ready for WWIII to erupt on the scene with the wildest duo in comics from legends Joe Kelly (Deadpool, Uncanny X-Men) and Adam Kubert (Wolverine, Uncanny X-Men)!

On writing the upcoming series, Kelly told IGN, “There were so many factors that made me say yes to writing this book. Adam Kubert was number one. I worked with Adam during my early Marvel career and have been a fan of his ever since – both as an artist and a human. So, working with him again? No brainer, yes please.

The second reason was Wolverine. As much as this is a buddy-book, Logan is the entry point to the story, which gave me a chance to explore this character I love. His voice, his perspective on the world, all of it gave me a unique way to approach an epic team-up…

And then, big number three… there’s the body horror. Deadpool and Wolverine together allow for a bloody playground of a story. A tale of self-examination and introspection as told through some seriously jaw-dropping nastiness thanks to Adam’s deft hands. It’s a dark, funny, messy ride I hope everyone enjoys as much as I do.”

Look for Deadpool & Wolverine: WWIII #1 (of 3) to arrive in stores and digitally on Wednesday, May 1st.
