BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Will Hugh Jackman ever hang up his adamantium claws? The latest word from the actor himself is that he would be totally down to join Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool movie.
The good news is that retribution for X-Men Origins: Wolverine is on the way. After years of being stuck in development hell because of studio executives with no vision for the potential of comic book movies, Deadpool is actually moving forward. 20th Century Fox has officially announced that the movie will be released on February 12, 2016 – which means that production will start up within the next six months.
While comic book fans everywhere are elated that the Deadpool movie is finally coming together, there is one aspect of the development that has been at the center of some debate: the expected MPAA rating.
It was about two weeks ago that we first learned six actresses were in contention for the lead female role in director Tim Miller's Deadpool movie, but now apparently the filmmakers and folks at 20th Century Fox have made their selection from that list.
When the Deadpool script leaked out a few years back, one detail that wound up getting a lot of attention was the fact that the story included a role for the Russian mutant known as Colossus. As a result of this, many people just assumed that this would mean that Daniel Cudmore would eventually wind up being cast in the film. Instead it appears that the role is going to be recast.
After years of being stuck in development hell, the Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds is finally gearing up for production. Before that can happen, however, the movie is going to need to fill its ranks with supporting players – and that means a lot of casting.
We've been hearing a lot of talk for years about the idea of Colossus possibly playing a role in the upcoming Deadpool movie, and while we still don't know if that's actually going to happen, one this is for certain: getting an X-Men character into the film is a big deal.
There hasn’t been much casting news recently about Deadpool, but now it’s been announced that Haywire star and mixed martial artist Gina Carano will be appearing alongside the Merc With a Mouth.
Deadpool will finally give the Merc With a Mouth the film he deserves - and that includes finally giving him a mask. Thanks to Ryan Reynolds, we know what Wade Wilson will be covering his face with in the movie.
With Deadpool back into the swing of production, now's a good time to find him a partner to play off of. And these six ladies make up the short list to mouth off with the Merc.
With Deadpool on the horizon, Ryan Reynolds may be finally be getting around to make the comic book movie that fans have been clamoring for for years>. One important step on that road, however, is looking back at mistakes of the actor's own superhero past - namely with 2011’s Green Lantern.
The task of getting Marvel’s Deadpool off the ground has been long and arduous. However, its potential star, Ryan Reynolds hopes that there will be a gory, vulgar language-infused, possibly nudity-laced pot of gold at the end of this long developmental rainbow: Namely an R rating from the MPAA. Will the upcoming Deadpool film finally be the R rated comic book movie that breaks barriers?
For years, Ryan Reynolds has been the only actor mentioned in connection with Deadpool movie, but that all changes today.
With X-Men: Apocalypse being set in the 1980's, there has been a lot of word going around about potential casting shakeups involving the original mutants we all know and love from the original X-Men trilogy.
Whether or not Ryan Reynolds would return to play Deadpool in 20th Century Fox's upcoming X-Men spin-off has been a question burning in the minds of comic book fans for weeks now, but it seems as though that situation may have been resolved.
When 20th Century Fox officially put the Deadpool movie on their release schedule, they forgot to include one key detail about the project. It was said that first-time filmmaker Tim Miller would be directing based on the long in-development script by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese - but what wasn't confirmed was the return of Ryan Reynolds.
When writer/producer Simon Kinberg signed a three-year deal with 20th Century Fox last year to oversee the future of X-Men and Fantastic Four movies, he acknowledged a pretty straightforward goal: “Be like Marvel.” Referring to the constantly growing cinematic universe at Marvel Studios, Kinberg revealed that he wants to do something massive with his comic book movies – and Deadpool is very much a part of that.
There exists and interesting similarity in the relationships between the comic book movie fans and the Deadpool movie, and Captain Ahab and Moby Dick. Lovers of the Merc With The Mouth have spent years and exhumed quite a bit of energy begging and waiting for the feature to actually happen, but it has long felt like a fruitless venture with no positive outcome in sight. But now everything is different. People: the Deadpool movie is actually happening!
Because the matter of a Deadpool movie rating seemed very important to fans, we went right to the source. In our exclusive interview with Rob Liefeld, I asked him if the movie – as far as he knows – will be PG-13, and if the rating concerned him. Here's what he said.
Wade Winston Wilson often plays in the same sandboxes as the X-Men characters, and that trend could continue when the anti-hero makes his way to the big screen in 2016.
In an exclusive interview, Liefeld referred to that leaked footage – and the positive response to it from fans – as the “last and most important piece” to the Deadpool puzzle.
As excited as we were last week about the news that the Deadpool movie had finally gotten a release date, we sadly didn't realize the potential drawbacks of the project actually moving forward. Basically, fans may have just made a deal with the devil.
For years it looked like a Deadpool movie was going to be just plain impossible. It didn't look like 20th Century Fox was ever going to give the okay to an R-rated comic book movie, and Ryan Reynolds became seen as box office poison circa 2011 thanks to the release of films like Green Lantern and The Change-Up. But none of that matters anymore. The Deadpool movie is actually happening! Chimichangas for everybody!
Reese is staging this plea at the right time: Guardians Of The Galaxy - a comic featuring characters with none of the fame or visibility of Deadpool - just went on to become one of Marvel's biggest cinematic success stories. Through Disney, Marvel was able to sell the general moviegoing public on Ronan The Accuser, The Collector and Groot. Why couldn't Fox do the same with the Merc With A Mouth?
If you can recall, Reynolds basically played a beta-version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As mercenary Wade Wilson, he shows up, cracks some jokes, vanishes for an hour, then returns with a mouth carved shut and new, bizarre abilities. Not only was the new Deadpool script not at all related to the previous film, but it openly mocked the character's strange treatment by Fox executives.
