Last Saint Patrick’s Day Weekend was busy for many police departments across the country. Word is making the Internet rounds that Portland police responded to a call at the local Taco Bell to find 18-year-old Alexander Cooksey in a Deadpool onesie. The problem, he was parked and passed out behind the wheel on the Taco Bell’s lawn. It seems he was trying to get into the drive through and didn’t make it. No Chimichangas for you Deadpool fan. Check out the rest of the story and pictures below. (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…)
While making the publicity rounds for Life, which hits theaters this weekend, the writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had a sequel update for Zombieland fans. Now there’s nothing wrong with a Zombieland sequel, but shouldn’t they be hip deep in Deadpool 2? Check out the update and the issues a Zombieland sequel faces after the jump. (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…)
FOX has won big recently with two slam dunks, Deadpool and now Logan, both of which are rated R. The R rating marks a heavy departure from past superhero films, allowing for a more mature shift in tone, something which audiences are clearly hungry for. So with the success of these films, it is only natural to ask whether other studios will follow suit and release R rated superhero films as well. DC has hinted they might be interested. (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…)
It’s a question that the Deadpool writers were going to have to confront eventually, but where does the Merc with the Mouth fall in the various X-Men timelines? There’s the pre-Days of Future Past chronology, the post-Days of Future Past timeline, and whatever future Logan is going to take place in… And the first Deadpool had Colossus, a version of the character that had never been portrayed on screen before. So where do the Deadpool movies fall in the ever expansive and numerous timelines of the X-Men film universe? Don’t worry about it, says one of the writers, Deadpool’s going to do its own thing. (more…)
Deadpool was a massive hit when it arrived in theaters last year even becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film ever. Everybody knew the film would have a sequel… The Merc With a Mouth even told us so in the Ferris Beuler’s Day Off post-credits scene. What we didn’t know was who was going to be making a cameo. Other than the obvious name drop for Cable, it was anyone’s guess as to which X-Man (or X-Woman) might pop in for some comic hilarity. Now we know the answer, and it’s not surprising to find out that the next Deadpool flick will be lacking in support from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
While Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds didn’t pick up wins at the Golden Globes, the nominations started some serious conversations about where superhero movies, truly excellent superhero movies (Think Dark Knight/Deadpool) belong when it comes to Hollywood awards. The Golden Globe nominations also kicked up discussions about possible Oscar nominations that began as humorous promoting and morphed into something much more serious. Reynolds is now promising a ” f—ing crazy reaction video” if Deadpool gets the Oscar Nom. (more…)
