In what many will say is too little too late, FOX is actually using one of their licensed Marvel characters to promote another set of their Marvel characters movie. Before at most you might get the banner “From the studio that brought you X-Men: Days of Future Past!” Now they’ve pulled out all the strings and shoved the Internet’s superhero darling Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) into the Fantastic Four mix and it just goes to show ya, everything IS better with Deadpool.

As per modern Hollywood marketing tradition, the pending release of the first trailer for Deadpool is being promoted with… a trailer. Smartly labeled as the “trailer trailer” it features five-time Academy Awards viewer and Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds with tongue firmly in cheek as he sends up trailers, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the general silliness of having something called a “trailer trailer.” A lot of people have been looking forward to this, at least those Deadpool fans unlucky enough to not have been at San Diego Comic Con and lacked the basic computer knowledge to find the leaked footage from the same. Yes fans, it looks like tomorrow is going to be a treat. (more…)
Deadpool was the take away hit at San Diego Comic Con. It was the only footage shown in which fans (6,000 strong) chanted “one more time, one more time!”. Naturally, the R Rated trailer shown at Comic Con was leaked online immediately afterwards. Despite the shaky cam footage that looked like it was shot between some dudes butt cheeks, the footage went viral. Fans were lovin’ the action, the costume, and the onslaught of verbal quips. It was perfect! Figuring that FOX had no way of stopping the leak, it was assumed they would have released the footage online in all its glory. Except they didn’t. It’s now been approx. 3 weeks since Comic Con… where’s the damn footage?
It’s coming. Soon! Check after the break for the official release details… (more…)
Earlier this week, Hugh Jackman reached out to fans about Wolverine 3. He wasn’t revealing any new details, in fact he was calling on fans to tell him what Wolverine 3 should be about, in 50 words or less. As one would expect, there were tons of fans who wanted to throw in their two cents with the Old Man Logan plot being a favorite. Amongst all those fans though responding to Jackman’s tweet was none other than The-Merc-with-the-Mouth himself, soon to star in his own “R” rated Deadpool movie, Ryan Reynolds. What did he have to say in 50 words or less? (more…)
Capping off a somewhat unlikely resurgence in popularity, Marvel’s Deadpool (created by the infamous Rob Liefeld) is ready to see big screen action when his film hits theaters onFebruary 12th 2016. Ryan Reynolds has kept fan interest alive with his series of amazing in-character tweets and photos, and Empire wants to take part in the fun as evidenced by these fun new images. They show off Deadpool looking ready for action, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and even a pre-Deadpool look at Wade Wilson himself with Copycat. Check these out! (more…)
Fox is firing up the preproduction for Gambit, an X-Men-franchise film set to start Channing Tatum in the title role. Taking what had been established in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and likely throwing it all out the window (along with that film’s Deadpool persona, even though that character was played by Ryan Reynolds and will be played by Reynolds again in the Deadpool solo film), the new solo-star film should start shooting in the last few months of this year. Today we get word that a casting call has gone out for several of the film’s main characters.
Surrounded by an ocean of discarded lanyards, empty hand sanitizer bottles, nerd tears, and a slowly dissipating funk cloud, it’s Bastard-Con 2015!, North America’s 4th biggest wholly audio nerd convention.
This year, Jeremy and Jason offer an exclusive (ish) preview of X-Men: Apoplectic, Deadpool: F*ck Your Face, Star Wars Episode 7: Practical Magic, Batman V. Superman V. Expectations V. Ash V. Evil Dead V. Studio Crocodile Tears.
As the convention hall doors prepare to close on another sensory-overload edition of the most media-heavy nerd gathering in the known universe, we here at NBHQ thought it would be wise to take a quick trip down Recent-Memory Lane by recapping some of the craziest, zaniest, and most mind-blowing-y moments of SDCC15. As with all forms of public opinion, this list is not meant to be all-inclusive or definitive, but simply a gathering of some of the cool stuff that transpired. Enjoy!
Tonight, 20th Century Fox did something that only hours before seemed impossible: they presented footage that excited the audience in attendance more than the WB/DC footage shown earlier that day. Sure, the new Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials looks great, as does the James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliff starrer, Victor Frankenstein. However, there were three properties that everyone came to see and Fox delivered the goods with X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four, and the long-awaited Deadpool. One of these is definitely not like the others and it was this footage that truly had the crowd screaming. So, sit down, grab a fucking chimichanga, and get ready to read about what is sure to be the first hard R-Rated superhero blockbuster ever made. You know him, you love him, he loved you (and you have the stains to prove it), ladies and gentlemen, the Merc With a Mouth was in full glory on the Hall H stage to present footage from Deadpool.

It’s been quite the day from San Diego Comic Con’s Hall H. Warner Bros. came and shook everyone for a loop with first look from Suicide Squad as well as the latest trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Hugh Jackman’s Pan movie had a little visual showing, as well did Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E, but neither of those latter films brought the house down like Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman did. Then there was the panel from Legendary Pictures with their showing of Duncan Jone’s Warcraft movie, which look amazing.
Much hype. Such excite.
Fans are still processing this mornings happenings, but the day is not over. Next up is the panel presentation from everyone’s not so favorite movie studio FOX. While the “FOX” name makes most fans skin crawl, they’ve got a not so little film by the name of Deadpool coming to Hall H. I’m pretty sure we can expect a little something something from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse and other surprises. Don’t know exactly what’s in store, but we’re gonna be live blogging the happenings as they happen. Stay tuned. (more…)
