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…)
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. (more…)
Rumours about what fans can expect from the future of Deadpool have been flying since the first movie ended and the post-credits scene saw Ryan Reynolds‘s masked antihero profess his hopes to star alongside Cable in the next movie, should one be commissioned. People have been talking about Domino making an appearance since early last year, with the rumours seemingly confirmed later on in 2016 and casting coming to a head just this month. A lot of names have been considered for the part, with the six people originally considered last year now no longer involved in the project. (more…)
It looks like everyone was looking up the wrong sleeve because Ryan Reynolds just tweeted out some interesting Domino casting news for Deadpool 2. While most of us were looking right, Reynolds went left with a name no one had considered, Zazie Beetz (Atlanta). Check out his announcement tweet below. (more…)
It wasn’t just beer ads and trailers for sequels during last night’s big game. An upcoming science fiction film called Life premiered its second trailer and it looks absolutely amazing! Sure, the action on the field was pretty intense and certainly worth watching, but it’s a pretty well known fact that people just tune in for the commercials. Studios spend big bucks preparing their projected hits for these spots costing a whopping $5 million for every 30 seconds of airtime so the studio must be as excited to bring Life to theaters as they were to make this 2:30 spot at a cost of $25 million just to air. This is a trailer with some explanation so SPOILERS ahead (Duh).
The upcoming Green Lantern Corps film set to release in 2020 is scouting for its leading man. The rumor mill has pushed out the shortlist for possible contenders to take on the role of the Emerald Crusader. As we mentioned in a previous piece about the film, there hasn’t been much released about what we can expect other than the main characters will be the Green Lanterns of Earth: Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, John Stewart, and Guy Gardner. This morning, The Wrap, dropped some names for who might take on the role and a surprising top of the list has a little experience with the character.
Deadpool was a massive hit when it arrived in theaters last year even becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film ever. Everybody knew the film would have a sequel… The Merc With a Mouth even told us so in the Ferris Beuler’s Day Off post-credits scene. What we didn’t know was who was going to be making a cameo. Other than the obvious name drop for Cable, it was anyone’s guess as to which X-Man (or X-Woman) might pop in for some comic hilarity. Now we know the answer, and it’s not surprising to find out that the next Deadpool flick will be lacking in support from Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
While Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds didn’t pick up wins at the Golden Globes, the nominations started some serious conversations about where superhero movies, truly excellent superhero movies (Think Dark Knight/Deadpool) belong when it comes to Hollywood awards. The Golden Globe nominations also kicked up discussions about possible Oscar nominations that began as humorous promoting and morphed into something much more serious. Reynolds is now promising a ” f—ing crazy reaction video” if Deadpool gets the Oscar Nom. (more…)
While it may have been a joke last year when Deadpool wasn’t even eligible for an Oscar nod, this year the possibility of Deadpool receiving multiple Oscar nominations isn’t a joking matter and Ryan Reynolds is ready to do what it takes to make things happen. He’s just released a new For Your Consideration Video and sent personally signed letters in screener packages to Oscar nominators. Check those out below. (more…)
