Jeff Wadlow Writing ‘X-Force’ Movie, Likely to Star Cable & Deadpool; Plus Magneto Movie Still in the Works

- 07-13-13Comics, Film Posted by Sarah Moran

The news on FOX‘s X-Force movie is just steamrolling! Only this past Thursday night did we even learn FOX was interested in a feature film based on the 90s comic book series, and now the movie has been officially confirmed as in the works with Jeff Wadlow, writer/director of the soon to be released Kick-Ass 2, attached to write the screenplay.

Likely, this rapid release of this X-Force news is tied to San Diego Comic Con happening next weekend. FOX dragged their feet in releasing the details of their Saturday Hall H panel, and I’m going to guess it’s because they wanted to have as much of this X-Force stuff finalized before they officially, officially announce the flick in front of thousands of nerds.

So what do we know? Well, Wadlow is indeed writing the screenplay, as THR reported yesterday, and may be interested in directing as well. As for the line-up of characters who’ll comprise the team? X-Force creator Rob Liefeld is convinced you can’t have an X-Force movie without Cable or Deadpool, tweeting,

Reynolds Talks About the Ups and Downs of ‘Deadpool’

- 07-08-13Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

We know that development in Hollywood can be a delirious process of ups and downs, but in the annals of the movie business even Deadpool has got to be setting some kind of record for most jerks of the chain, and Ryan Reynolds knows it. The actor played the so-called “Merc with the Mouth” in the 2009 flick X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the presumption was that solo film featuring the character would quickly follow, but that’s not been the case.

In a recent interview with Total Film, Reynolds talked about the development of Deadpool and why it’s “the worst relationship I’ve ever had!”:

That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead… it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had! The character knows he’s a comic-book character, he knows he’s in a film, he knows who the executives are at the studio making the movie. In the current iteration of the script, Deadpool is aware of the Wolverine movie. He doesn’t say anything disparaging about it but he does at one point play with the Deadpool action figure with some curiosity.

The lack of development on Deadpool is perplexing, especially since all the major pieces are in place: a star, a script by the Zombieland duo of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and director Tim Miller (who worked on visual effects for Scott Pilgrim and created the title designs for the U.S. version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), are all attached. Will we ever see a Deadpool movie? Hopefully they’ll get going before Reynolds is too old to do all those stunts.

More news as it develops.

Wizard World Comic Con NYC Experience Cosplay

- 06-29-13Cosplay, Featured Posted by Shelly V.

Cosplay34

Wizard World Comic Con NYC Experience graced New York with Wizard’s first NYC con in awhile, moving to Pier 36. But while the event did draw thousands of geeks from New York’s tri-state area who were on the prowl for toys and a chance to interact with their favorite celebs, we braved the con in search of cool, fun, and sexy cosplayers.

And what a search it was…

Okay, here’s the deal, nobody wants to see a “cool tee shirt wearer” photo gallery, and at one point, I kinda thought that’s what we were going to be stuck with, because when I arrived in downtown Manhattan for the show, I was greeted by a vast line of anxious fans waiting to enter the convention — a line with nearly no cosplayers and a shit-ton of normies. Where’s the fun in that?

After an hour, I was beginning to really feel both the stress of whiffing on my assigned task and a sense of WTF as I had only seen a handful of cosplayers. I was starting to lose hope, wondering how this con had somehow excluded the cosplay world. Finally, a little more than 2 hours into the con, I started seeing more cosplayers, allowing me a chance to breath.

As for why I wasn’t hit by a stampede of cosplayers at the starting gate like we saw in Philly last month, I can only guess that it had something to do with timing, because the Adult Cosplay Contest didn’t start till 7PM.

Once the cosplayers began to saunter in, though, we did see the usual blend of heroes and vixens, some surprises and some familiar faces.

One of those familiar faces was our favorite Poison Ivy cosplayer from Wizard World Philly, Nicole Marie Jean. This time, she was dressed up as Red Sonja (that’s her in the top image), a costume that really blew me away.

Another awesome cosplayer I met was dressed as Whiplash. She looked fantastic and had attitude to match, telling me “I’m just that awesome” when I complemented her. I am down with crossplay.

On the guy side, there are a few that stood out. For one, we found the elusive semi-muscular Deadpool who could do the Merc with a Mouth justice. Sorry boys, but Wade requires more than a drawn on six-pack. Secondly Wolverine… damn. He’s up there in the top image too, and to my fellow geek girls and other lovers of fine fellas, I say, “You are welcome”.

Weirdest moment? I pulled a Star Wars cosplayer in with the tractor beam of my Yoda earings and then got a toy gun in my face (for dramatic effect) when it came time to take his picture.

In the end, I walked away loving the cosplay at the NYCC Experience, and though they weren’t there in droves, those who did brave the subway while wearing spandex did bring it, providing us with more than enough awesome to get us to San Diego, which is a little more than 2 weeks away!

Check out our cosplay pics from Wizard World NYC and let us know your favorite.
