Not content to wait idly by until Deadpool 2 starts shooting next year, the merc with a mouth infiltrated this Japanese trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse. It was partly in preparation for the Japanese release of his own film (where it opened earlier this month; this is a few weeks old) but mainly to continue biting the…
You’re a superhero on a team with Cable, the bad-ass mutant warrior who comes from the future. You need to hold onto hope, to hear that there’s a reason to keep fighting the good fight. But you’re also on a team with Wade Wilson.
Deadpool’s love of Bea Arthur has been a long-running joke in the comics, and one that got the most subtle lip service in Merc with a Mouth’s hit movie thanks to the late Golden Girls actress appearing on one of Wade Wilson’s tank tops. And it took a concerted effort by Ryan Reynolds to do so... as well as a sizable…
Deadpool contained all sorts of CGI tweaking, whether it was the eyes on Deadpool’s mask, background extensions, or apparently, helping Ryan Reynolds’ skin look as disgusting as possible. Take a look at how some of the film’s sequences came to light in a new VFX breakdown from Rodeo.
James Gunn drops a Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 teaser. Jared Leto offers more insight into his unique preparation for the role of the Joker. Krypton gets its pilot order. Plus, new clips from Alice Through the Looking Glass and Agents of SHIELD, and Earth Space Defense wants you in a new Independence Day viral…
Olivia Munn will be Psylocke when X-Men: Apocalypse comes out later this month, but she was nearly a completely different character in Fox’s comic-based movie universe: Deadpool’s girlfriend Vanessa. The role was eventually played by Morena Baccarin—because Munn basically said hell no.
Hello again! Sorry for last week’s absence, but you sure gave me a bunch of excellent letters, so it technically worked out for all of us. This week: Is Rey in danger from Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow? When is a time travel movie not a time travel movie? And most importantly, is Batfleck a Batcoholic?
Usually, this sort of talk would be passed off as wild dreams that could never happen. But apparently the teams behind Deadpool and the X-Men movies have already started laying out the groundwork for this classic comics team-up to happen on the big screen.
Tim Miller’s Deadpool movie is so good and so true to the character, it’s hopefully wiped out most memories you had about his first incarnation as a gooey ninja who couldn’t speak at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now the director of that film, Gavin Hood, has explained why his version was so bad and the new one…
Swapping in a stunt double for an actor in a superhero movie is especially easy, since masks usually hide the character’s face. But the super-human abilities of most Marvel heroes are beyond the reach of even the most talented stunt performers. That’s where digital dopplegangers come in handy.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead was put in Deadpool basically by virtue of a) being a character that wasn’t vital to the X-Men movies and b) having a really cool name. So it’s no surprise that she could have looked like pretty much anything.
For almost seven years, 20th Century Fox sat on the script for Deadpool, scared that it wouldn’t make any money. Now, two weekends after the film’s release, it’s already the highest grossing X-Men movie ever, in terms of domestic, non-adjusted box office—which is the metric everybody uses when they’re talking about…
Greetings and salutations, my friends! I’m back, and I couldn’t be more delighted to be back. I have a lot to catch up on, so let’s get right to it—I’ve received questions about a certain Star Wars couple, how the Deadpool movie will change the industry, why Talking Dead even exists, and the mystery of what made Leia…
The final act of Deadpool may have left out a ton of superhero stuff that proved too expensive—but there was one ginormous Marvel Universe easter egg that made it in. And we’ve got some concept art for it, exclusively at io9. Spoilers ahead, maybe?
Deadpool is a comic book movie that was a passion project for everyone involved. This meant making a superhero movie on a very small budget—and one slashed at the last second at that. A bunch of characters and scenes got the ax for budgetary reasons, but know we know everything that almost made it into the movie.
In this cool video interview, Deadpool’s soudtrack composer Tom Holkenborg explains he had a very specific vision for the film’s score: use the glorious sounds of the synth to give Ryan Reynolds’ wise-ass character an ‘80s revival canvas on which to paint his mayhem.
Well, that didn’t take long! A mere two days after Deadpool’s shocking box office success, Fox has begun going all-in on “adult” superhero films. At the New York Toy Fair, the studio announced that it wants the third solo Wolverine movie to also be rated “R.”
Forget Days of Future Past. Sending Wolverine’s consciousness back to the 1970s may have erased the calamity of X3: X-Men United, but that’s small potatoes compared to how Deadpool may have altered the trajectory of the future of Fox’s X-Men movie universe—and a lot of other superhero movies, too.
