Oh, Ryan Reynolds. You know you’re the only one who can play Deadpool, the only one who can who can get the Merc’s acid tongue right, the only one whose muscles can glisten with sweat in that oh-so-special way… what was I saying? Oh! Deadpool! Right! So why is there talk that Reynolds might say goodbye to Marvel’s fourth-wall-breaking character?
In an recent interview, Io9 fires a few questions at Reynolds about his upcoming projects, including the Deadpool movie(s). Reynolds shares that Deadpool and the undead cop flick R.I.P.D. (“Rest In Peace Department,” based on the comic book) may be filmed around the same time and that he’s unlikely to be in both, especially because of his potential involvement with Green Lantern 2.
Because it’s such a crapshoot, this industry. Everything’s so fickle and so contingent on so many factors, aside from just an actor. And because it has an actor, and because these films have interested directors, it’s obviously likely that they’ll both get made. But I think it would be more likely that only one of them gets made with me. – Ryan Reynolds to Io9
Which movie do you prefer Reynolds takes on – Deadpool or R.I.P.D.? After the X-Men Origins: Wolverine debacle, can you picture anyone else besides Reynolds playing – nay, bettering – Wade Wilson?
Reynolds shows up next in Buried. Check out Reynolds’ potential upcoming projects on IMDB.
What a fucken Nimrod. Well that could quite possibly be the mutterings of fanboys worldwide when the Spiderman Reboot hits the streets..Nimrod Antal, the director of Predators, yet another in the remake charade, is being courted as the new director..Quiet Earth:
Sam Raimi met Nimrod on the Sony lot before his first US film, Vacancy. They clicked, so Sam hired him to direct Armored. Now, Predators is getting some great word-of-mouth around tinsel-town. Warners loves it and now Sam Raimi and Sony want the director back at the studio to helm Spiderman.
Now brace your weak heart. The other piece of meat turning out of the rumor mill is Robert Pattenson stepping into the webslinger’s tights…. WHAT WHAT???!!!! I bring this news along with io9’s intel that Pattenson had his abs spray painted on for Twilight! You hear that you preteen JERKOFF’S!!! HE DOESN”T LOOK LIKE THAT…What with his Easter Island Statue Head and sparkliness !! Their will be a lynch mob of Helmsdeep-like proportions of fanboys, trying to catch their breath and dropping their inhalers as Robert Pattenson is run out of town on a rail. We want our Vampires to combust in daylight, not glitter like Mariah. If they want to do this right, with Peter Parker being back in school….I don’t care how gay I sound, and when I say gay, I mean HOMOSEXUAL…That Zac Efron, if all geeked up, could be Spiderman. in 17 Again, he did an outstanding job showing not just his acting ability but for a good display of tongue in cheek humor and timing. Also, he knows how to make fun of himself…Along with the rest of us making fun of him.
Do you ever get suckered into doing something that you think is beneath you, but then you get completely consumed by it? That pretty much sums up my relationship with Twitter. Let me tell you a little story, and then I’ll help you get your geek on.
Looks like all you Justice League and Superman fans are gonna be getting Kryptonite Green Balls….As opposed to blue ones. Warner bros. Has officially put the franchise on hold until it least 2011-2012. IO9 got the scoop-
As the studio is waiting to resolve the legal dispute, there’s no movement on the project. [Superman Returns] grossed $391 million worldwide off strong reviews for a genre sequel. But it cost more than $232 million. Warners felt it could have performed better with more action and a powerful villain-and no Superman kid. So Singer was taken off the franchise… [Warner Bros. execs] want to start over from scratch. While Kick-Ass writer Mark Millar did pitch himself (to scant interest), WB in-house faves the Wachowski brothers and their protege James McTeigue were never approached. (It’s hard to imagine such hard-R types taking on what one blogger described as the “Big Blue Boy Scout.”) The studio is still seeking the right direction. No writers are working on a Superman script. “We’re working on a strategy for DC,” says one Warners exec. “Superman is the trickiest one to figure out.”
I really thought Brandon Routhe was a stellar Kal-El and that it would be prudent of them to keep him in the wings. The acting was fine, it was the plot line holding it back. No, Lex Luther, just a good old Doomsday style fight!!! Blowing through building like tinfoil and hurling cars at each other like nerf balls.
These people will butcher what we love. Hopefully they get good things going soon. But I am fearful because they “Aren’t sure” what to do with the character!?!?!? If they can make 2 AMAZING spiderman films, I’m sure they can find a good idea for Superman…Assholes.
