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!

So you’re the Merc with the Mouth, you’re in town to shoot the sequel to your highly popular movie, what’s the first stop you’re going to make? To the X-Mansion, of course! Sadly for Deadpool though, it looks like nobody’s home. Perhaps they’re busy with the Dark Phoenix. Perhaps his friends Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead are out for breakfast, for it is the most important meal of the day as observed by the big metal man from Russia. Either way, it looks like Deadpool’s going to have to play solo for the first couple of days of shooting on Deadpool 2. (more…)
We’ve all wondered, and now we know! Once, 20th Century Fox expected to release three X-Men films in the calendar year 2016, but there only ended up being two, and at least one of them was a massive box office success. That was Deadpool of course, and long have we waited on news of when we might actually see it’s sequel. Now, we finally know: 2018! And because this is Fox we’re talking about, not only are we going to get another Deadpool next year, we’re going to be getting two other X-Men movies too, and before you ask, one of them isn’t Gambit.

The special effects powers that be behind Deadpool 2 are wasting no time getting ready for production as they begin the process to transform Josh Brolin into Cable. Brolin shared two images on Instagram today that certainly show his commitment to the role. Sitting still for that kind of head cast is not easy. Brolin is no stranger to wearing prosthetics for a role, he wore Jonah Hex‘s scar quite well. Check out some of what he’s going through below. (more…)
Word around the Internet Grapevine via The Hollywood Reporter, is that Josh Brolin (Jonah Hex, Men In Black, Avengers) has signed a four-picture deal to play Cable, aka Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, first in Deadpool 2 and then X-Force and others? While it shouldn’t surprise anyone, besides Ryan Reynolds, the soon to be Deadpool franchise has been making casting decisions from left-field since the beginning. (more…)
The success of Deadpool has ignited a whole now conversation about what it happening in the world of comic book inspired movies. All of a sudden, darker and more violent storylines became legitimate options for future films, more mature content seemed to the on the horizon. The potential storylines were narrowed down at the bonus scene after the end credits of the first movie, when Ryan Reynolds‘s masked mercenary expressed dear wishes to get his old buddy Cable in the sequel. Since that sequel was confirmed, there has been a tense dialogue about what fans can expect from it and who will be involved. (more…)
Another day, another Deadpool 2 Cable casting rumor.
Every since the character was announced for the sequel at the end of the first Deadpool movie, the only thing everyone seems to care about is who will be playing the character. For the last year, month over month, names have been mentioned, rumored, and fan casted. Where fans may see perfect casting in Stephen Lang (Avatar) or Ron Perlman (Hellboy), the studio seems to have different presence for the character. Names on Fox’s supposed shortlist are, in no particular order: Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights), Russel Crowe (Gladiator), Pierce Brosnan (James Bond) and David Harbor (Stranger Things).
And now another name is in the mix. (more…)
We’ve talked so much about Deadpool 2, but it feels like there’s still so little we know about it, especially in terms of who’s going to be in it. Obviously, Ryan Reynolds will be back as the Merc with the Mouth, and so will Colossus, and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. It was also recently announced that Atlanta star Zazie Beetz will play Domino in the highly-anticipated sequel, but we keep futzing with the real casting announcement we’ve been desperate to hear about since the post-credits scene of Deadpool: Who the heck is playing Cable?! Well, that answer may be coming soon. (more…)
Rumours about what fans can expect from the future of Deadpool have been flying since the first movie ended and the post-credits scene saw Ryan Reynolds‘s masked antihero profess his hopes to star alongside Cable in the next movie, should one be commissioned. People have been talking about Domino making an appearance since early last year, with the rumours seemingly confirmed later on in 2016 and casting coming to a head just this month. A lot of names have been considered for the part, with the six people originally considered last year now no longer involved in the project. (more…)
It looks like everyone was looking up the wrong sleeve because Ryan Reynolds just tweeted out some interesting Domino casting news for Deadpool 2. While most of us were looking right, Reynolds went left with a name no one had considered, Zazie Beetz (Atlanta). Check out his announcement tweet below. (more…)
