Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds is the unofficial king of wit and smart-assery.  Making use of his exasperatingly charming and mischievous sarcastic humor, Reynolds joins Deadpool 2 cast mate Josh Brolin in a “Playground Insults” game for Scott Mills’ BBC Radio 1 program. No harm. No foul. Just an assault of amusing insults in jest… kinda like a Comedy Central Roasts but with good looking people.  (more…)

Releasing a second- or third-tier superhero flick, especially an ultra-violent, superhero comedy over the Valentine’s Day weekend seemed like a joke in and of itself, a joke financed to the tune of $60 million (modest for superhero flicks, a significant chunk of change for anything else), but that’s exactly the gamble 20th-Century Fox decided to take two years ago with the R-rated, Ryan Reynolds-starring Deadpool. More than $780 million dollars later and Fox’s gamble didn’t look a gamble at all. It looked like a low-risk, high-reward perfectly rational, perfectly reasonable decision. A sequel – the first of many presumably – was inevitable (movie studios are for-profit corporations after all), but with Reynolds, here taking a co-writing credit in addition to slipping back into Deadpool’s red-and-black spandex outfit, and some smart, clever lifts from Deadpool’s extensive comic-book history, the result, Deadpool 2: When Deadpool Met Cable (And Fell into a Mutual Admiration Society), gives fans more of the same (as expected), but also gives the same fans far more (definitely unexpected).

With the films premier just weeks away, the Deadpool 2 promotional marketing is in full swing. And by full swing, we mean the marketing team has been swinging for the fences and landing some deep bombs.

Coming off the hilarious Deadpool music video featuring Celine Dion’s new single “Ashes”,  good ole’ Deadpool is up to even more zany antics. The red suited goof is coming to Europe, makes overdue apologies to soccer icon David Beckham, as well as epically trolls Marvel’s Infinity War(more…)

Hot on the heels of last week’s first look at Domino (Zazie Beetz) Ryan Reynolds has just tweeted out a first look at Josh Brolin as Cable and it is glorious. Deadpool 2 is shaping up nicely and while some may have had issue with Beetz’s look for Domino, there isn’t a comic book fan alive that can argue that Brolin’s Cable isn’t straight from the comic book pages. Check it out below. (more…)

Wonder Woman continued to bring in the box office dollars over the weekend and passed Deadpool to join the top ten highest grossing superhero movies in the United States. Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) of course broke the 5th wall, that’s the one dividing Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes to acknowledge the success of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman with a witty tweet. (more…)

Deadpool Drops By X-Mansion as Cameras Roll on Sequel

So you’re the Merc with the Mouth, you’re in town to shoot the sequel to your highly popular movie, what’s the first stop you’re going to make? To the X-Mansion, of course! Sadly for Deadpool though, it looks like nobody’s home. Perhaps they’re busy with the Dark Phoenix. Perhaps his friends Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead are out for breakfast, for it is the most important meal of the day as observed by the big metal man from Russia. Either way, it looks like Deadpool’s going to have to play solo for the first couple of days of shooting on Deadpool 2 (more…)

Word around the Internet Grapevine via The Hollywood Reporter, is that Josh Brolin (Jonah Hex, Men In Black, Avengers) has signed a four-picture deal to play Cable, aka Nathan Christopher Charles Summers, first in Deadpool 2 and then X-Force and others?  While it shouldn’t surprise anyone, besides Ryan Reynolds, the soon to be Deadpool franchise has been making casting decisions from left-field since the beginning.
