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…)
Let’s face it; Deadpool was every raunchy, comic book-adoring individual’s dream. It had everything you could ask for from one of the most sarcastic actors in Hollywood perfecting the role to some of the most gruesome fight scenes to grace the screen and the superhero movie trend in a long time. However, as the screen rolled the credits and the fans trudged out of the theaters, the question already on their minds was simply, ‘what’s next?’ (more…)
Logan leaves the X-Men movie universe in an odd place. With it supposedly being Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart‘s swan song, it definitely feels like an important turning point in the history of the franchise, both the end of something, and the opportunity to start something else. But what does the future of the X-Men look like? Well, if only person can know it would be Simon Kinberg, the writer/producer who’s had his hands in every X-Men project for over a decade. We’ve heard all the rumours, but in a new interview Kinberg elaborated on how Deadpool, Cable and others all fit into the big picture going forward in this cinematic universe. (more…)
If you haven’t been under a rock for the last week, then you probably have seen or at least heard of the new Deadpool 2 tease, ‘No Good Deed’, at the beginning of the new Logan film. In all his raunchy glory, Deadpool cracks jokes at multiple pop culture tropes including Superman and Wolverine himself. Although it has been stated that none of the short film’s content will make its way into the sequel, fans are able to get their little fix of the old avocado while they wait patiently for Deadpool 2 to grace their eyes.
However, one thing stood out in the short film that has been leading countless individuals to the world wide web after Logan for answers. At the end of the teaser, a massive wall of text hits the screen and, as quick as it appears, it is gone. Being unable to read it, people have really been wondering what this text says and, at last, we know what the wall says but the answer may seem a bit insane (although, isn’t that pretty Deadpool-esque?).

In a secret that lasted all of 5 minutes, the cat is now out of the bag. Or should we say, Deadpool is out of the bag? There had been some rumblings indicating Ryan Reynolds and the Deadpool crew were shooting a short Deadpool 2 trailer that was supposed to run after the credits in Logan. It turns that report was slightly inaccurate. The scene Reynolds shot actually plays right before Logan starts, as a hilarious introduction for the final Wolverine movie. Now, of course, not a hot second later, it has made its way to the web. Since FOX doesn’t want to waste its time battling all the site posting butt cam cell phone footage, they’ve gone and released it officially. (more…)
Given all the hype surrounding Deadpool 2, it’s a casting choice that fans are hungry to know the most. It’s been said since the post credits of Deadpool 1 that the time-traveling, cybernetic, mutant known as Cable will be teaming up with Pool. It’s pretty much a given that the Deadpool 2 production team will be pulling out all the stops to cast Cable and teas fans relentlessly about it until the ink dries on the contract for whomever they decide on. In the mean time, fans can continue to fantasize at all the actors who’ve cropped up. Names like Stephen Lang (Avatar), Keira Knightley (Pirate of the Carribean), Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Pierce Brosnan (James Bond). Only the latter two have reportedly been eyed by Fox.
Now another name has entered the mix. One that the Deadpool pool creative team and studio is supposedly really behind. (more…)
