Ryan Reynolds Says ‘Deadpool’ Is Going To Be The Movie The Fans Wanted

- 01-26-15Comics, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

Deadpool

Ryan Reynolds is at Sundance Film Festival bracing the cold and talking about the voices in his head, the ones coming from his pets and also how he intends to break the fourth wall all in a days work (it all sounds rather schizophrenic, but we’re referring to his new movie The Voices).

Following a couple of Box Office duds (Green Lantern, RIPD), the voices must be offering up a semblance of good advice since the next batch of films he has coming up – including the one he is at Sundance promoting Mississippi Grind – have been receiving mostly good reviews, and look set to make up for lost ground. On top of that, Reynolds starts filming the long awaited (eleven years to be precise), and very much anticipated spin-off/sequel to the dreadful Wolverine: Origins. So, hearing what Reynolds has to say regarding Deadpool‘s solo outing certainly offers up some reassurances for the fans. (more…)

Let’s say you’re a mega-studio that owns everything and run by a high-pitched, talking rodent. You just wrapped on a movie than expands the universe of an iconic trilogy, paving the way for new blood to take the reigns and star in future related films. What do you do? Do you accept the fact that your original cast is aging and it’s time for said new blood to run like wild horses? Or do you refuse to let go of the older characters and rehash them into a prequel type spinoff of the aforementioned iconic trilogy? I know what I would do, but I’m not a falsetto rat, and I barely own the clothes on my back. So let’s talk instead about what he might be doing. (more…)

During his time as the Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, we frequently saw David Tennant as the tortured, but now it looks like he’s going to be the one to do the torturing. It’s been announced today that Tennant has been cast in the important role of Zebediah Killgrave, AKA: The Purple Man, on the upcoming Netflix series from Marvel Studios, AKA: Jessica Jones. It’s the first bit of casting to be announced outside for the series outside of star Krysten Ritter as the title character and Mike Colter as her fellow Defender and lover interest Luke Cage. But given The Purple Man’s role in the mythology of Jessica Jones, get ready to be afraid, very afraid, of everyone’s favorite modern Doctor. (more…)

Who will direct the two-part conclusion to our live-action saga starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes? Last I heard, ‘Winter Soldier’s’ the Russo Brothers were at least helming part 1 of ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ Suddenly, that doesn’t seem to be the case, as there are new questions about Joss Whedon returning. Questions so tough that he had to cross legs with Empire Magazine for a little chit chat about this and that, and oh yeah…dude, are you directing these movies or what? We’ll see exactly what he said after the jump, but from the cheap seats, it kinda reminds me of that time when Peter Jackson said he was tired of Middle Earth. Yeah, you see where I’m going with this. (more…)

Which Characters May Feature In Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Justice League Dark’

Justice League Dark

With Warner Bros. set on quickly expanding their DC Cinematic Universe, it comes as no surprise that more news is starting to surface regarding the future of Guillermo del Toro‘s movie adaptation of Justice League Dark. Having managed to juggle his fantastically busy schedule; writing and handing in a finished screenplay to the suits at Warner just before Christmas, this is by no means a transient money-grabber for the ever-proverbial workaholic. Guillermo has been working on the project alongside the studio for many years now, and it seems that both parties want to knock things into gear–or at least kick-start the creative engine. With no solidified release date in sight yet, we have news on potential characters who could be set to feature in the dark superhero franchise. (more…)

While many thought Emma Watson would be Disney‘s Live Action Cinderella back in 2013, it turns out that it just wasn’t meant to be. Fans hopes of seeing Watson as a Disney Princess seemed lost, but now those hopes will pay off as Watson takes the role of another Live Action Disney Princess Belle, when production starts on the Live Action Beauty and the Beast.

Warners Plotting ‘Jetsons’ Return with Animated Movie

jetsons

Hollywood studios have tried twice to turn The Flintstones into live-action, big screen franchise, famously employing over 30 screenwriters to try and make 1994’s John Goodman-starring film happen to middling box office results and a terrible critical reception. But why double, or even triple down on the modern stone age family when you can adapt the post-modern space age family? As further tribute to Hollywood’s ideas deficit, The Jetsons are now set to get their big screen bow in an animated feature now in development at the studio. How serious is the proposition? The studio has a screenwriter in place although no further information is known about it right this minute. So I guess you can say it’s pretty serious. (more…)

Luke Evans Ditches ‘The Crow’ Reboot To Pursue Other Projects

Luke-Evans

This sort of thing happens all the time in Hollywood, people slip in and out of productions, much like the normal person changes underwear or socks, but Relativity Studios might need to seek out the services of an Exorcist, because first they lost a director (F. Javier Gutiérrez), who was later replaced by Corin Hardy. Now they’ve lost their Crow star Luke Evans. (more…)
