The big show is on! Comic-Con officially began last night in San Diego and the crew of io9 is there to experience it first-hand and bring you all the fun. Our own Beth Elderkin and Germain Lussier took a stroll around the show floor on Preview Night to give you a sneak peak at what to expect.
When an extended version of a film is included on a Blu-ray, obviously, that’s the main event. But Deadpool 2 has much more going for it than just an extended cut.
There’s more Deadpool coming. (In the world of comics, there’s always more Deadpool coming.)
Every iteration of Cable has a few problems. Time travel disaster scenarios, a techno-organic virus, and, like, where do I put all these guns, anyway? This concept art from Deadpool 2 gives some insight into the way the film’s designers thought through those problems.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is about a young man lured into a life of smuggling and thievery. Deadpool 2 stars an actual murderer. Why do we admire heroes who commit crimes? On the latest episode of That Looks Familiar, Beth Elderkin shares the stories of real-life “Lovable Rogues” from history and looks at what happens…
My favorite gag in the Deadpool movies is that he just really, really enjoys The Golden Girls. And who can blame him? It’s a charming, wholesome show.
Every year, GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) publishes an analysis of the current state of LGBTQ representation in Hollywood. This year’s analysis took Marvel and Warner Bros. to task for some of their most recent blockbusters.
Deadpool 2 revels in pointing out many of the overused narrative beats that other comic book movies tend to rely on when the writers decide to phone it in. Interestingly, the film’s shadiest dig is also one of its most progressive messages.
Deadpool 2 is so packed with references and jokes about every single genre and property imaginable (and some unimaginable, too), trying to cover them all comprehensively is basically impossible. So we’re going with quality over quantity instead: These are our favorite surprises—the characters, references, one-liners,…
Deadpool 2 had a weird marketing campaign. One of its earliest salvos was an odd trailer that featured Deadpool playing out the role of Bob Ross. The trailer, which was full of Easter Eggs and gags, spawned a host of fan theories about the final film. And the film’s credits contain a nod to one of the biggest.
Deadpool, as a character and a film franchise, often goes to dark places to get laughs. But some jokes are too dark even for the Merc with a Mouth, and this is probably one of them.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the neatest toys around. This week, Hot Toys gives us a Deadpool with killer footwear, the incredible Batman Ninja gets an equally worthy action figure, and more Harry Potter Lego than you can shake a whomping willow at. Check it out!
If you’ve already seen Deadpool 2, then some congratulations are in order. Congratulations! Now get in here where it’s safe to talk about the damned film safely before the hordes of anti-spoiler purists catch your scent on the wind and hunt you down.
Deadpool 2 is upon us, in which the Merc with a Mouth has to form a team of his own to fight off Cable—the X-Force. The team has an important history in the comics, and although Deadpool 2's version is a little different, it’s still packed with new faces that have some Marvel Comics history. Here’s what you should…
Ten years. Some really bad decisions by Ryan Reynolds. Two movies. And several low-level X-Men. Is that enough for Deadpool to pat himself on the back as if he’d, say, spent the last 10 decades pumping out movies like Marvel? You bet it is.
It: Chapter 2 casts some more adult versions of its original stars. Daredevil’s third season may be bringing in one of his greatest foes. Simon Kinberg promises a real and grounded X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but also aliens. Plus, a glimmer of hope for Lucifer’s return, and enter Shogunworld with new Westworld pictures. To…
The end credits scene of Deadpool 2 is one of the most memorable in superhero history. And, don’t worry, we aren’t going to spoil it. But the film’s writers recently spoke about two other scenes they imagined for the credits that didn’t make it into the film—and they’re just as outrageous, if not more so.
There’s more wild rumors about Ben Affleck’s future as Batman. Some very interesting set pictures for Daredevil reveal a surprise return. Robin Lord Taylor promises an apocalyptic Gotham finale. Plus, looks at the season finales of Once Upon a Time and The Flash, and behind the scenes on Solo: A Star Wars Story.…
We’re nearing Zombieland’s Aluminum Anniversary, but you don’t have to worry about getting the screenwriters a present. In fact, to celebrate the horror comedy’s 10-year anniversary, they’ve decided to give us something: Another Zombieland.
Deadpool 2 is a family movie. We know that because, very early on, Deadpool himself says it. Of course, that’s an odd thing for a character known for excessive violence, naughty language, and occasional nudity to announce. But Deadpool, the writers, and the director spend the bulk of the film trying to live up to that…
