Deadpool 2

Ryan Reynolds is the unofficial king of wit and smart-assery.  Making use of his exasperatingly charming and mischievous sarcastic humor, Reynolds joins Deadpool 2 cast mate Josh Brolin in a “Playground Insults” game for Scott Mills’ BBC Radio 1 program. No harm. No foul. Just an assault of amusing insults in jest… kinda like a Comedy Central Roasts but with good looking people.  (more…)

Releasing a second- or third-tier superhero flick, especially an ultra-violent, superhero comedy over the Valentine’s Day weekend seemed like a joke in and of itself, a joke financed to the tune of $60 million (modest for superhero flicks, a significant chunk of change for anything else), but that’s exactly the gamble 20th-Century Fox decided to take two years ago with the R-rated, Ryan Reynolds-starring Deadpool. More than $780 million dollars later and Fox’s gamble didn’t look a gamble at all. It looked like a low-risk, high-reward perfectly rational, perfectly reasonable decision. A sequel – the first of many presumably – was inevitable (movie studios are for-profit corporations after all), but with Reynolds, here taking a co-writing credit in addition to slipping back into Deadpool’s red-and-black spandex outfit, and some smart, clever lifts from Deadpool’s extensive comic-book history, the result, Deadpool 2: When Deadpool Met Cable (And Fell into a Mutual Admiration Society), gives fans more of the same (as expected), but also gives the same fans far more (definitely unexpected).

With the films premier just weeks away, the Deadpool 2 promotional marketing is in full swing. And by full swing, we mean the marketing team has been swinging for the fences and landing some deep bombs.

Coming off the hilarious Deadpool music video featuring Celine Dion’s new single “Ashes”,  good ole’ Deadpool is up to even more zany antics. The red suited goof is coming to Europe, makes overdue apologies to soccer icon David Beckham, as well as epically trolls Marvel’s Infinity War(more…)

A cache of new Deadpool 2 International Posters have been making the rounds on twitter teasing that the Merc with a Mouth isn’t coming alone when he arrives in theaters May 18th, 2018. The film’s been on quite a crazy road from having its release date moved up to having to head back to Vancouver for reshoots. According to Collider, the reshoots were to add more of the film’s co-stars, Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beatz) and the posters spotlight them both in their glorious costumes.

Hot on the heels of last week’s first look at Domino (Zazie Beetz) Ryan Reynolds has just tweeted out a first look at Josh Brolin as Cable and it is glorious. Deadpool 2 is shaping up nicely and while some may have had issue with Beetz’s look for Domino, there isn’t a comic book fan alive that can argue that Brolin’s Cable isn’t straight from the comic book pages. Check it out below. (more…)

Deadpool 2 is presently shooting in and around the Vancouver area, and star-spotters are scouring the streets of the city looking for Ryan Reynolds, both in and out of the famous mask of the Merc with the Mouth. Now though, at least for fans of a certain New Zealand comedy from the director of Thor: Ragnarok, there’s another celebrity in the greater Vancouver area worth keeping an eye out for. If you’re a fan of Taika Waititi‘s Hunt for the Wilderpeople – and why wouldn’t you be? – be on the look out for Ricky Baker who may be riding a tall man in a red and black suit and armed with swords!
