Although Deadpool is a character in the X-Men universe, he is not necessarily one to associate himself with the X-Men. However, in a new promotional still from Empire for the upcoming Deadpool 2, he can be seen wearing a yellow X-Men t-shirt as he stands alongside Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead. In addition, the photo includes Hunt for the Wilderpeople star Julian Dennison as a yet-to-be-confirmed character generating flames from his hands. This still can be seen below:
Given that Deadpool’s snarky personality, it is likely that the shirt is part of one of his many jokes and not a sure sign that he has changed his mind to become an X-Man. In addition, based on what has been revealed about the film’s plot such as the formation of X-Force, it is also probable that Deadpool is wearing that shirt on top of his standard red and black outfit because he wants to acknowledge he is a part of a team of mutants, even if that team is not as prolific as the X-Men.
The true explanation behind Deadpool wearing that yellow X-Men shirt will be revealed once the movie comes out. Considering the character’s subversive nature, perhaps it might not be focused to a great extent. In the meantime, fans can speculate what this shirt signifies for Deadpool himself and the movie surrounding him.
