Marvel has released a new trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine, confirming the return of a major X-Men character.

The third blockbuster in the Deadpool series sees the two heroes (played by Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman) team up as they fight to defeat the villainous Cassandra Nova (Emma Corrin).

Cassandra isn't the only villain who will come up against the superheros in the upcoming film, with Wolverine's arch-nemesis Sabretooth set to return for revenge.

The new teaser, which was released on Friday (June 28), saw Tyler Mane reprise his role as the mutant.

"Ready to die?" asked Sabretooth, as he set eyes on Wolverine once again, before Deadpool paused the exchange to clean his friend up before the fight.

"You look ridiculous," he said, while pulling out multiple blades from Wolverine's torso. "People have waited decades for this fight. It's not going to be easy."

"Shoot the devil, you take him down. Side control. Then full mount and you ground and pound until he makes no sound because he's dead," he continued, before the enemies are seen angrily running towards each other.

The new clip also gives fans a glimpse of Succession star Matthew Macfadyen as a TVA agent with a seemingly broken nose, who tells Deadpool that Wolverine has "let down his entire world".

Sabretooth isn't the only X-Men character to make a cameo in the upcoming movie, with Aaron Stanford set to reprise his role as Pyro alongside fellow mutant Colossus (voiced by Stefan Kapičić).

X-Force teammates Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Shatterstar (Lewis Tan), Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna) and Peter (Rob Delaney) will also feature in the film.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Shawn Levy previously explained how his team chose the X-Men characters making the jump to the MCU, saying: "I'll say we didn't start off with a wish list.

"From the day we started devising this Deadpool & Wolverine story, we let the story dictate the characters, not the other way around."

He added: "Aaron and his return as Pyro was an outgrowth of that, and that applies to pretty much all the characters you'll see in the movie."

Deadpool and Deadpool 2 are streaming on Disney+. Deadpool & Wolverine opens in cinemas on July 26.
