While Hugh Jackman does the Publicity Shuffle for Neill Blomkamp‘s new movie Chappie, It’s a given that he’ll also field some questions about Wolverine, the X-Men, and other superhero related movie news. This time around Yahoo! Movies and MTV News hit Jackman with some questions about the possibilities of Wolverine and Deadpool sharing some big screen time and if he thinks we’ll ever get an X-Men/Avengers Crossover movie.

Word is making the Internet rounds that Gotham and Jim Gordan’s favorite new Medical Examiner, Firefly and Captain Mal’s favorite Companion, and V‘s rodent eating lizard leader, Morena Baccarin has been cast to star opposite Ryan Reynolds in the long-demanded/awaited Deadpool movie. What role will she be playing? (more…)
When the FOX Deadpool production team announced the casting of Gina Carano they also revealed that Colossus would be showing up in the movie. That lead many to believe that Daniel Cudmore, who has played the role on the big screen since 2003, would be the one turning all shiny and perhaps punching Deadpool into the next county, but alas it is not to be.

Production on Wham! will begin soon, and by Wham! we mean Deadpool. (If you don’t understand the reference, we refer you to this article.) While the leading man of the film has been confirmed for some time, Ryan Ryenolds, the rest of the cast, not to mention the parts that they’re going to play, remains a question mark. Well, sort of. A new casting call reveals, if not the actual identities of the characters then what types of actors they are looking to play them. So who will be joining Deadpool in what’s sure to be a bloody and violent (rating pending) big screen adventure full of meta-commentary and other laughs? (more…)
With the release of Deadpool exactly a year away (February 12, 2016,) and the films star Ryan Reynolds already saying that it will be the movie fans want it to be, maybe it’s time the man playing the merc put his money where his mouth is. Reynolds took to Twitter this morning to tease and early look at the Deadpool costume and by the looks of things fans should be happy. Check it out below. (more…)
Even though X-Men Origins: Wolverine royally bombed with everyone except maybe Hugh Jackman‘s mom, Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role of the Merc with the Mouth for the upcoming Deadpool solo feature. That part of casting the upcoming X-Men spin-off film was more or less a forgone conclusion, but who might play Deadpool’s leading lady in the film, that is a more complicated question. Sources say that the production has it narrowed down to six potentials, including a couple of choice names that should be very familiar to genre fans. The role the winning actress might play, is unknown, but what is known is the code name for the Deadpool production, so if you’re in the Vancouver area in the next couple of months and want to stalk the cast and crew, the watch word you’ll need to know is… (more…)
This one time when I was broke as hell, I sold my Deadpool’s first appearance (New Mutants) to a comic book store for extra cash. It always hurts when you do that, but sometimes we’re backed up against a wall and we do what we gotta do. But, in all honesty, any time I let loose of something Deadpool related, I die inside. That’s why I think that this era is a great one for new comic book fans. The Merc With The Mouth is set to have his own personal ho-down during the upcoming Secret Wars throwdown. We’ve already talked about the emergence of ‘A-Force’ today. Let’s talk about ‘D-Force.’ (stop being mad. I made that up) (more…)
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…)

In the latter part of 2014, it was announced that everyone’s favorite jive talking, and certifiably insane “Merc with the Mouth”, aka Deadpool, would be getting is very own live-action movie. Slated for release in 2016 the production is moving forward with the comedic action extravaganza, and casting is now taking shape.
We know Ryan Reynolds will star as the red suited sword-smith who has a penchant for eating chimichangas, but who else will be rounding out the cast? (more…)
