There’s a two person race in Hollywood to see which actor can play their comic book character in the most number of movies. An unofficial race, mind you, but a race just the same. Robert Downey Jr. has appeared as Tony Stark/Iron Man in six movies so far, but his seventh, Captain America: Civil War, will be released next year. That will tie him with Hugh Jackman, who’s appeared as Logan/Wolverine in five X-Men movies and two Wolverine spin-off films. So the ball is in Jackman’s court to up the ante, and while he doesn’t have as many options as Downey does, he does have options. For example, he could appear in the upcoming Deadpool movie, and if the actor playing the Merc with the Mouth is to be believed, it may actually happen. (more…)

If you haven’t really been paying much attention to the Internet lately then it may have slipped right by you that Ryan Reynolds is having the time of his life on Tim Miller‘s Deadpool set in Vancouver, Canada. If he’s not mugging for the camera or posting Happy Mother’s Day pictures like the one above, then he’s grabbing fans for selfies and shaking hands of people simply walking by the set. This time Reynolds has started up a verified Instagram account and posted a new all action Deadpool shot. (more…)
While we wait for Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller to finally bring us the Deadpool movie we’ve always longed for, it looks like the character Deadpool had a few things to work out amongst him-selves before his big return to the big screen. If you’ve ever wondered how the real Deadpool would match up with the Deadpool we never speak of from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, then today is your lucky day. (more…)

Unlike Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman, which has been scarce in production photos and videos, Sony’s Deadpool has been a non-stop media blitz. Almost every day star Ryan Reynolds is Tweeting pictures of himself in costume (and fan posters like the one above), or there’s a myriad of a set videos of Deadpool in action. Perhaps this is a conscious choice. For a comic character of this caliber and for the film to have an R rating, as well as being a project that sat on the shelf for years, maybe the Studio is letting things get out to continue the online buzz with the end result of putting as many asses in seats as possible?
Whether or not that’s true, well, it doesn’t really matter now does it. Fans are eating it up. The latest from Deadpool gives us our first look at Negasonic Teenage Warhead, played by newcomer Brianna Hildebrand. Meanwhile, set photos have surfaced of Colossus, which is interesting because no actor has been announced for the role as of yet. (more…)
His katanas…. Ryan Reynolds whipped out his katanas, get your mind out of the gutter. Deadpool is still shooting on the Georgia Street Viaduct and on the fourth day Deadpool brought out his two katanas for some slicing and dicing action. (more…)
Ryan Reynolds has not had the best of luck with comic book movies. Clearly, he’s a fan of the genre, and he’s the kind of guy that gives 110 per cent to the part once he’s cast, but it’s been one swing and a miss after the other when it comes to his big screen superhero ambitions. Deadpool got dissed in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern was dead on arrival, and the less said about R.I.P.D. the better (and Jeff Bridges would thank you never to mention it again). For all appearances though, this solo Deadpool looks like it may be Reynolds chance through. Like Chris Evans before him, he’s found his comic book muse. Or maybe this is just a picture of a guy on a toilet. (more…)
As the Deadpool production continues to film on the Vancouver Georgia Street Viaduct, there’s new video and stills of Ryan Reynolds getting his Deadpool on. Check out the gallery and on set videos below. (more…)
