BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
A few weeks ago, attendees at San Diego Comic-Con got a very special look at one of the most anticipated films of 2016: Tim Miller's Deadpool. The footage was violent, over-the-top, and extremely funny... but 20th Century Fox decided to not release it right away. Thankfully, the forthcoming release of Fantastic Four is changing that story.
Fantastic Four hits theaters this Friday, which means it’s time for one last preview. Twentieth Century Fox released an extended look at their latest superhero film that runs just under four minutes.
Considering how many comic book movies are set to come out over the next few years, each title is going to have to find some way to stand out. For Deadpool, that special factor happens to be the fact that the movie will be carrying a hard R-rating - and Fox is doing what they can to make sure you know it.
This clip primarily is the footage that 20th Century Fox used to open the Deadpool portion of the San Diego Comic-Con panel. Only, instead of talk of the trailer dropping, in the moments after the pipe falls out of Ryan Reynolds’ mouth, it was (if I remember correctly), a toss to an introduction of the cast.
The most important thing to convey in the first-look Deadpool footage will be the character’s sense of humor, so mark Tuesday on your calendar, Deadpool fans, and get ready to analyze some (hopefully) incredible imagery.
Hugh Jackman’s query on what should be in Wolverine 3 received waves of suggestions across social media, but Ryan Reynolds also threw his two cents in, and it involves his own character, Deadpool.
With the First Class-led X-Men trilogy coming to an end, Fox is now investing in the future of its superhero franchise…literally. Deadpool is already revving up for release, a New Mutants adaptation is somewhere down the line, and a Fantastic Four-X-Men crossover is under discussion, but Gambit will cost an arm and leg for the studio to make.
Lots of people, including Ryan Reynolds, have ideas about Fox's comic book universe. For example, he'd like to see an X-Force movie led by Cable, which would rule.
While we’ve seen R-rated comic book movies before, the reality is director Tim Miller’s Deadpool should offer up material unlike anything we’ve seen. This is largely because of a very important combination: a psychotic titular character with a rapid healing factor, and the project being made with a hard-R-rating in mind.
The Deadpool trailer featured plenty of violence, profanity, and yes, even some sex. But while the fornication only made up approximately two seconds of the footage, the cast of the blockbuster has promised that the finished cut of the film will be delivering a very cool sex montage to theaters next year.
Director Tim Miller’s Deadpool promises to not only be a completely different kind of X-Men film, but a completely different comic book movie altogether. But just because the upcoming blockbuster will be unique doesn’t mean that it can’t be a part of a larger picture.
Last night, attendees of San Diego Comic-Con were treated to an amazing treat, as the cast and director of Deadpool revealed the first ever footage from the 2016 blockbuster. Unfortunately, fans who weren't in Hall H will have to wait a little while for their own first look at the movie, but the good news is that the wait really won't be that long.
Swore is the right term, as the Deadpool panel dropped more F-bombs than the Wachowski siblings dropped bullet shells in the finale of The Matrix. The fact that we’re getting an R-rated Deadpool movie is one reason why fans left Hall H pumped by the footage. Here are the other major reasons why Deadpool went over so well.
If you thought the famous Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie was incredible, then you’ll love the superhero version of that. To cap off the big Hall H panel for 20th Century Fox at San Diego Comic-Con, all of the Fox superheroes — including the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Wolverine and, yes, Gambit — congregated next to Marvel creator Stan Lee for one epic selfie to stand the test of time.
Deadpool falls into the “mutant” category within the Marvel universe. While we don’t really know how, or if, Deadpool will ever join up with, or against, the X-Men proper, we do know that movies do connect together if they ever need to.
Production is pretty far along on the Ryan Reynolds-starring Deadpool adaptation, but that doesn't mean there's not room for more, and they've added an important character from the comics.
As San Diego Comic-Con rolled on, the cosplayers came out in full force. Part of the fun of walking the floor comes with running into life-size versions of the characters that we love from the screen and the page.
The start of San Diego Comic-Con festivities means that we will soon be seeing big presentations from some of the biggest comic book movies coming out in the next year – and we’re super pumped for what’s in store.
It’s not just the Deadpool’s insane personality that Ryan Reynolds loves. The actor also considers Wade Wilson’s distinctive red costume to be much better than what he had to wear during the filming of Green Lantern.
Some fans have wondered whether we may see a crossover between Deadpool and the X-Men on the big screen. However, according to Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, this would be difficult to accomplish.
