If there’s one thing we’ve gotten a lot of over the past few years, it’s superhero sequels.
Independence Day 3 may already be on the way. Deadpool 2 is definitely on the way. How the Flash messing up the timeline in his TV show has made one actor’s return very confusing. And the Suicide Squad movie receives its own bad theme song. Spoilers, yo!
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.
Look, for this job I watch a lot of promotional videos. Trailers and TV spots and ads and featurettes—everything studios do in the neverending pole-dance that is trying to get people to see their movies. Sometimes, movies are paid a lot of money to let other companies sell shit using their characters and I have to…
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.
The long gestation process for Daredevil means the script went through a lot of changes. Early on in the process, Fox actually wanted Cable, Deadpool’s grim, gun-toting, pouch-loving buddy, to co-star with the Merc with a Mouth—until Deadpool and Cable creator Rob Liefeld had his say.
One of the Deadpool movie’s best elements was how the movie brought his mask to life. This might shock you to learn, but there was an astounding amount of work involved in making a mask that could be as expressive as it is in the comics, but that Ryan Reynolds’ could still see and talk out of.
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?
Fox have announced the details of Deadpool’s home release on May 10th—including a commentary with co-creator Rob Liefeld. Liefeld is joined by director Tim Miller on the track, one of two included. As always with Deadpool, there’s a cute, fourth-wall-breaking image detailing all the content that you can see below.
Originality is difficult. Try to come up with an original concept and odds are, you’re just taking bits and pieces from your previous experiences to give something old a new spin. That’s the theme of Icons Unmasked, an amazing new art show by artist Alex Solis.
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.
It’s turning out to be a very good day for films everybody assumed would never happen! Tim Miller, best known for turning a foul-mouthed superhero into an R-rated blockbuster, said that the adaptation of Eric Powell’s unbelievably great comic may actually still be made, and it’s likely thanks to Deadpool’s success.
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…
This weekend, Deadpool earned $746 million to become the highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. But the top-grossing R-rated film in the U.S. is still Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, which grossed $370.8 million domestically. Comparatively, Deadpool has earned $349.5 million in the U.S. ...so far.
Good day to you, one and all! (But especially the one. You know who you are.) The week you guys asked if The 100 will fix its own stupid mistake, whether the Netflix shows are too dark for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and when to tell your kid that Darth Vader is actually Luke’s father. Let’s mail it in, shall we?
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.
