5 Superheroes Who Deserve R-Rated Movies (And Might Actually Get One Someday)
If anyone tells you that comic books are just for kids then you can be sure that that person doesn’t actually read comic books. Even in the typically-child friendly world of superheroes there are plenty of books filled with sex, violence, profanity and other material meant to appeal to adults and adults alone.
Enough, Wolverine! Here Are 5 Other X-Men Who Deserve Standalone Films
Remember back when X-Men Origins: Wolverine suggested that Fox would tell other origin stories? As bad as Origins was, I still believe in the idea.
Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool Movie Update Sadly Doesn't End With A Deadpool Movie
“Everybody has a different idea as to how you’re supposed to do it, and for me, it’s been tough because it comes and goes like the tide…I never know where it is.” Sounds like he’s just dripping with positivity, right?
How Kick-Ass 2 Could End Up Helping Deadpool Get Made
Said Wernick, "We're hoping Kick-Ass 2 does great because that could open people's eyes to the audience that an R-rated comic book movie can bring in."
Ryan Reynolds Isn't Eager To Reprise Green Lantern In Justice League Movie
Despite making $219 million worldwide, the big budget CGI spectacle (that cost a whopping $200 mil to make) was loathed by critics, some of whom are big fans of the comics in their own right. This contributed to the decline of Reynolds' prospects as a viable leading man. And he has no interest in making the same mistake twice. Well, "very little" interest anyway.
Deadpool Just Needs The Greenlight From Fox And It Will Be Ready To Go
We here at Cinema Blend often talk of projects trapped in development hell, be it Ghostbusters IIIor the long awaited Janis Joplin biopic, but one that we find ourselves cheering on regularly is the comic book movie Deadpool. While the film has many pieces already in place - including a star (Ryan Reynolds), a script (written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese) and a director (Tim Miller) - 20th Century has never seemed to be 100% committed to it, despite loud fan outcry.
Deadpool Kicks Ass And Thinks About Tacos In 17-Minute Fan Made Film
We've come to terms with the fact that we will probably never get to see a real Deadpool movie. Despite the fact that 20th Century Fox has a brilliant script written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, Ryan Reynolds set to star and up-and-coming director Tim Miller attached to helm, the movie has been stuck in development hell for years now and the chances of it escaping grow slimmer by the day.
Time To Give Up: 11 Long-Anticipated Movies That Are Never Happening
Sometimes fans or even the filmmakers themselves will try to keep hope alive and drop hints about how the movies might happen, but at a certain point you just have to stop kidding yourselves. We've found 11 movies that were anticipating at one point for whatever reason, but with all the evidence in front of us, we have to conclude will never happen
Holding Out For A Hero: Six Superheroes That Deserved Another Film Before Ghost Rider
We came up with six superheroes who deserved a feature-length film before we were asked to endure another Ghost Rider film. Some are mighty beings with sequels or franchise reboots in the creative pipeline. Others were mistreated in previous films, and are begging for a second chance.
8 Minutes Of Deadpool Movie Test Footage May Exist
It's been a long time since we last heard anything new on the Deadpool front, and that's not exactly good news. When I spoke with producer Lauren Schuler Donner this past fall at an event for the Blu-ray release of X-Men: First Class, she told me that the future of the project would be decided by the end of the year. It is now 2012 and the future of Deadpool is still undecided.
Fan Made Deadpool Trailer Brings The Violence And The Chimichangas
Okay, so it's not a perfect trailer but it's definitely entertaining and clearly made by someone that understands that character (Chimichangas, anyone?). I always like to see fanmade trailers because even if they are silly and poorly edited, it's a sign of passion and that should be encouraged. And who knows: maybe it will encourage the execs over at 20th Century Fox to push even harder to get the real film made.
Interview: Donner On R-Rated Deadpool And Delayed Japanese Wolverine
The X-Men franchise has seen many different directors, writers, and actors, but one name that has been attached to all of them is producer Lauren Shuler Donner. Ever since 2000, when Bryan Singer first brought the uncanny heroes to the big screen, Donner has been behind the scenes making it all work and in the case of X-Men: First Class, she helped the project hit it out of the park.
VFX Artist Tim Miller Hired To Direct Ryan Reynolds In Deadpool
It was only a little while ago that I was spreading doom-and-gloom in regards to Deadpool, the comic book movie Ryan Reynolds seems to have on the end of a very long to-do list. Though the script, written by Zombieland scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, is absolutely fantastic...
Ryan Reynolds Says Deadpool Is Still In The Works
This past summer you couldn't go a whole week without hearing something distressing about Deadpool, the 20th Century Fox movie based on the Marvel character that would serve as a spin-off of sorts from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Though Ryan Reynolds repeatedly mentioned how much love he has for the character, he kept adding more and more projects to his schedule, pushing Deadpool further away.
Robert Liefeld, Creator Of Deadpool, Has A Message For Fox
It's a simple fact: comic book fans want to see a Deadpool movie. The movie has an incredible pair of writers attached in Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, a perfect star in Ryan Reynolds, and a potentially
