Michael Shannon favourite for Cable in Deadpool

22 March 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Man Of Steel and Midnight Special star Michael Shannon is apparently the front-runner to play the role of Cable in the forthcoming Deadpool 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers and director David Leitch are getting very close to casting the villain role in the planned sequel to the $700 million plus blockbuster from last year, and Shannon is the hot fave for the part. Other actors in the running for the coveted role include Stranger Things actor David Harbour, and previously Kyle Chandler, though the same source says that he was never in contention for the role.

The trade describes the character as being the opposite of Deadpool: ‘a man who is a leader and used to being obeyed, who is very controlled but with an aura of simmering violence. In the comics, Cable was from the future and was the adult of Scott Summers, also known as the X-Man Cyclops. »

Deadpool 2: Michael Shannon Emerges As Frontrunner To Play Cable

22 March 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Here at Lrm we're kind of into Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds' sarcastic Merc with a Mouth jolted new life into the flagging superhero genre last year and anticipation for the sequel has grown exponentially over the last several months. The internet has been buzzing over the recent announcement of actress Zazie Beetz securing the role of mutant marksman Domino, but there's been far greater debate (and some crazy speculation) over who should portray the time-travelling super-soldier, Cable. 

A list of plausible, potential actors has made the rounds, including Stranger Things' fearless sheriff David Harbour and Friday Night Lights alum Kyle Chandler; on the sligtly less-likely side, rumors include Brad Pitt, Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, WWE's Adam Copeland (Edge), and even Charlize Theron; and yet, here's not been a clear frontrunner for the part.

Until today.

If you're unfamiliar with the character, Cable is the offspring of X-Men's Cyclops/Scott Summers »

Rumor: from DC to Marvel Michael Shannon frontrunner for Cable in Deadpool 2

Man, it's been a journey trying to cast Cable in Deadpool 2. There were rumors that Kyle Chandler all but had the part last year (though it looks now like he was never even in the running), then it seemed David Harbour (Stranger Things, Suicide Squad) was in the lead, now it looks like - according to The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Shannon is the frontrunner for the role!

Deadpool 2: Michael Shannon Is the Frontrunner to Play Cable

22 March 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Before we even knew Deadpool was officially getting a sequel, we already had a strong inkling that one new face would definitely show up: Cable. The tip traces all the way back to the original film's postcredits scene, which hilariously pays homage to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. In it, Deadpool confirms that Cable will join for round two. Cable, if you don't know, is the son of Jean Grey's clone and Cyclops, both from the X-Men franchise. The question, of course, becomes who would play the badass Marvel character? Well, there's a new frontrunner in town: Michael Shannon. But before we get to that, let's review what has transpired in the past few weeks. Near the end of February, the creator of the Deadpool comic books (Robert Liefeld) basically revealed his dream casting for the role: Russell Crowe. Instead of just putting the wish out there in the Twitter ether, »

Michael Shannon emerges as frontrunner to play Cable in Deadpool 2

22 March 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There have been several names floating around in regards to the role of mutant mercenary Cable in David Leitch’s Deadpool 2, the sequel to last year’s Ryan Reynolds led superhero movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nocturnal Animals actor Michael Shannon has emerged as the frontrunner for the role. This seemingly confirms a report made a couples week that Shannon was in contention for the role.

While Stranger ThingsDavid Harbour is still being considered for the part, even going so far as to having a rumoured screentest with Reynolds, Shannon has moved up on the shortlist as Fox’s top choice to play Cable. This wouldn’t be the first time Shannon would have a role in a comic book film. He previously appeared in Jonah Hex alongside Josh Brolin and also starred as General Zod in Man of Steel.

Michael Shannon Is The Frontrunner To Play Cable In Deadpool 2

22 March 2017 11:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite reports of the actor dropping out of the race early on, THR now says that Michael Shannon is the frontrunner to play time travelling mutant Cable in Deadpool 2. This news comes just after Brad Pitt’s name was thrown into the mix last night, alongside former contestants Pierce Brosnan and David Harbour. From what we understand, the latter is still being considered, but at this time, Shannon is the studio’s top choice.

The outlet goes on to note that scheduling issues could force 20th Century Fox to go with someone else, which lines up with what we heard previously in regards to why the Man of Steel star couldn’t sign on, but for now, he remains the frontrunner for the role of Cable. What’s also interesting is that The Hollywood Reporter claims that though Kyle Chandler was an early favorite to play the part, and »

Sources say that Shannon isn't the only one on the studio’s list, but he is leading the pack as the top choice at this stage. Stranger Things actor David Harbour is also on the shortlist. Kyle Chandler's name surfaced last summer but sources say he was never in contention for the role.

What the Deadpool 2 Writers Are Looking for in Casting Cable

18 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Who will play Cable in Deadpool 2? That has been a question for months now, with many names thrown in the ring as possible candidates. Plenty of actors have made it known that they're available for the role, including Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, Russell Crowe and perhaps most famously Stephen Lang. Kyle Chandler was wanted at one point, and is blamed for Tim Miller's departure as a director, as Ryan Reynolds would not agree to cast the man. Pierce Brosnan has been teased for the role. And last we heard, Stranger Things star David Harbour was at the top of the most wanted list. But what is the Deadpool team really looking for when they finally cast their Cable? Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have finally opened up about the casting process. And they're pretty much looking for the polar opposite of Deadpool. Says Reese.

Rest Easy, Kong: Skull Island Fans - There's a Lot More King Kong in Your Future

10 March 2017 1:25 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Spoilers for the end of Kong: Skull Island below! For anyone who saw Kong: Skull Island and couldn't get enough of the entertaining action flick, we have good news. Thanks to the crazy post-credits scene at the conclusion of the film, it seems like there's going to be a lot more King Kong in our future. The only downside? It probably won't hit theaters for a long, long time. If you stick around after the miles and miles of credits finally finish scrolling, you'll be treated to a scene of Brie Larson and Tom Hiddleston's characters - who are among the only people who survive the film and make it off Skull Island - being held in Project Monarch headquarters (a top-secret government organization that was first introduced in 2014's Godzilla, and is to the "MonsterVerse" what S.H.I.E.L.D. is to superheroes). There they're told »

Godzilla Vs. Kong Officially Assembles Its Writers Room

10 March 2017 9:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just as Kong: Skull Island crashes into theaters, The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Legendary is beginning to make serious headway on its main event, Godzilla Vs. Kong. A writers room has officially been established, with Lindsey Beer (The Kingkiller Chronicles) and Pirates of the Caribbean scribe Terry Rossio among those on board to canvas ideas.

Rossio will oversee the creative process, before a single writer will be elected to hash out a screenplay. THR notes that Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond, Star Trek 4), Cat Vasko (Queen of the Air), T.S. Nowlin (Pacific Rim: Uprising) and comic book scribe J. Michael Straczynski (World War Z, Sense8) have also signed on to pitch their story ideas into the proverbial hat.

Legendary’s decision to hatch a writers room shouldn’t be all that surprising – in fact, the idea was originally proposed back when Godzilla: »

Here's What Happens in Kong: Skull Island's Crazy Postcredits Scene

9 March 2017 5:50 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Major spoilers for Kong: Skull Island below! Kong: Skull Island swings into theaters on Friday, but when the credits start to roll, make sure you stick around. King Kong might not be a superhero, per sé, but Warner Bros. has nestled a pretty theory-heavy postcredits scene à la Marvel and DC at the conclusion of the film. If it means what we think it does, it could be a total game changer for the budding Kong franchise. After the credits, a voice-over from Tom Hiddleston's character, tracker James Conrad, plays over a black screen: "Why are you sitting in the darkness? Are you enjoying this?" At first it seems like he's cheekily addressing the eager audience who's been waiting eons for the credits finish scrolling, but then the scene opens on Conrad angrily pounding on a one-way mirror in a nondescript interrogation room, while two mysterious figures (that only »

Breaking: Deadpool 2 Finally Has Its Domino

9 March 2017 2:18 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Deadpool 2 has faced a myriad of speculation in regards to its casting. With most comic book movies, we’re often left wondering which characters will be present in the first place, so that’s often where our speculation ends. However, with Deadpool 2, there are two characters we knew for a fact would be around apart from the Merc with a Mouth himself: Cable and Domino.

Between Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren, Kyle Chandler, and David Harbour, fans have no shortage of potential actors to take on Cable. Similarly, the casting of Domino has also faced some false reports — most recently Janelle Monaé.

Well, after months of waiting and speculation, the gleeful troll on Twitter known as Ryan Reynolds (he also produces and stars in Deadpool 2) announced via the social media service who will be portraying the pale-skinned mercenary.

‘Carol’ Without Women is Like The Worst Terrence Malick Movie Ever Made — Watch

8 March 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Trains, toys, and Kyle Chandler’s furrowed brow — that’s what you get when you watch “Carol” without women.

In honor of International Women’s Day, women around the world are striking from unpaid and paid labor in an act of solidarity highlighting women’s contributions to the workforce. In honor of the strike, dubbed “Day Without a Woman,” this oddly moving video essay presents every scene in Todd Haynes’ 2015 masterpiece, “Carol,” that does not feature a woman.

From the opening credits to Kyle Chandler and the other guys in the movie, “Carol” without women plays like six minutes of a discarded idea for a Terrence Malick film. Without the film’s two leads, Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the film doesn’t deliver much. “Carol,” which was written by Phyllis Nagy and »
