A little earlier today, we reported that Ryan Reynolds loved your responses to the leaked Deadpool footage that hit the net a few weeks back. Well, it looks like 20th Century Fox was listening (reading) and The Hollywood Reporter is, um, reporting that a Deadpool movie is officially in the works and on the slate. (more…)
Deadpool is absolutely one of the coolest characters that Marvel has ever put on paper. The Merc with a Mouth is one of those characters that not only have comic fans in love but is often used by those who are new to comics as a way of testing the superhero waters. If a reader isn’t able to fall in love with the sarcastic fourth-wall-breaking self-aware character, it may be an indication that Marvel comics may not be the right fit. Recently, test footage for a potential Deadpool movie was leaked and almost set the internet on fire. Not because it was horrible but because of just how wonderful it was and how badly people would love to see the movie. Now, the man behind the mouth, Ryan Reynolds, is finally speaking out about the footage. (more…)
We’re back with another batch of Dragon Con 2014 Cosplay pictures and videos. There was so much there to see that if we’d tried to put it in one post it might have overloaded and shut the site down! This time up we’ve got a Cosplay gallery, a great musical cosplay video, and more Deadpools than you can shake a stick at!
There’s a child like belief built into the Internet that if you want something bad enough, make enough noise about wanting it, and get enough other people to do the same, that someone somewhere with the power to make it happen will cave in and give you what you want. Any parent can tell you how that usually works out, but this time around I am totally down with holding my breath until Deadpool gets his own movie. That didn’t work out so well. I passed out after about 3 minutes and hit my head on the edge of the coffee table. So instead, I’m going to retweet Rhett Reese‘s Deadpool Movie plea. What will that do? Let’s find out! (more…)
The critical and commercial success of X-Men: Days of Future Past proved that there’s still a lot of life in the X-Men as a film franchise. But while we’ve heard a lot about Sony Pictures specific plans to franchise random Spider-Man characters, even in spite of the lackluster returns of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it’s been mostly quiet over at Twentieth Century Fox aside from one announcement that the next X-Men film, Apocalypse, was in development. Although there’s occasionally talk of another spin-off film aside from the next Wolverine solo adventure, such as Jeff Wadlow’s X-Force project, there’s mostly been long periods of silence between small bits of news about process.
And then something weird happened. Either by accident or on purpose, test footage for a Deadpool film hit the internet last weekend as San Diego Comic Con, and its drought of genuine movie news, came to a close. Although fans were uncertain of the degree of legitimacy the nearly two-minute clip actually had, it was soon revealed by the production company that made it, the Culver City-based Blur Studios, that this was indeed commissioned by 20th Century Fox to do a proof of concept for an ultra-violent, hard-R-rated Deadpool movie. Now the question for the many Deadpool fans around the world is, would such a movie be allowed to come to fruition from a major Hollywood studio? And the answer, despite Blur’s instantaneous success in capturing the character on film, is no. (more…)

A little over two years ago, back in 2012, Deadpool creator Rob Leifeld hinted to fans that there was test footage made for an “R” rated Deadpool movie with Ryan Reynolds. He described the footage, but no one really knew if he was telling the truth, or just pulling our collective legs. Now we know! Watch it quick before FOX or Marvel get it taken down! (more…)

No matter how many times we here at Nerd Bastards announce a new super hero movie in the works, there’s always at least one person that sounds off in the comments with “Where’s the Deadpool movie already!?” And while we can’t tell you exactly when the Merc with a Mouth might make the transition from comics to film, there is one woman that knows something. X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has stepped up to address the Deadpool conundrum. (more…)
