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…)

OPINION: Despite the Awesome Test Footage, ‘Deadpool’ is Unlikely to Happen

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…)

Big, shared universes are all the rage, all the cool movie studios are doing it after all. The Marvel Cinematic Universe being produced over at Disney/Marvel Studios is a good example of the system working well, but keep in mind that they don’t have access to the film rights for all the Marvel Comics characters. This is where Twentieth Century Fox comes in. They have the film rights for the Fantastic Four and all the X-Men related characters, and one man has been involved in the production of both film franchises: Simon Kinberg. While at Wonder Con a couple of weekends ago, Kinberg was asked about how Fox is going to capitalize on it’s Marvel properties now and in the future. (more…)
